WOYWW! :)

Hi everyone!

On my desk today...

bought some scrap pieces of lace for 75p in a craft shop in Ipswich. Scrap pieces measuring 3 meters each! :)


Envelope maker proved to be one of those things where you think 
'How did I cope without it???'


Another bargain from Poundland...

From this...


...to this. 
Ink them and squeeze them to make the petals a bit more compact.


Use one of these punches to make leaves and done! :)


Cheap but beautiful. :)

P.S.
Have you been to my Etsy shop yet?

How can 3metres be scrap - but lucky you never the less. Didn't know Poundland had envelope makers - must look.

I bought a paper trimmer in a Poundland in Colchester this week. And I saw that they have quite a lot of accessories and embellishments for cardmakers, as flowers, stick on diamonds (this is a new range, as I think, of craft items in Poundland - "Great Expressions") and sticky dots.

Clever! The roses look so mcuh better for a drink and a squeeze! I can live without the envelope maker, am totally over the need, but am full of admiration that you do!

Those laces are gorgeous and such a bargain at that price. I've already discovered the little roses but I get them from The Works - another cheap outlet. Thanks for the leaf making tip. Elizabeth x #97
