Today , for a change, Miss Abi and I decided we would do a swap and guest post on each other's blogs. Abi is a fabulous scrapbooker and we met over the blogosphere doing Shimelle's blogging class. She is still at school but about to move onto University in the next 9 months, so doesnt get as much time to craft as she would like. She is a beautiful young woman..................
For fun we have each swapped some facts about each other so here are Abi's.......................
1. I am terrified of Moths
2. I get so excited about christmas that last year I woke up at 5am on christmas morning!
3. I met the Queen when I was five but was too scared to speak to her! She did like my hat though!
4. I want to be teacher
5. My favourite christmas carol is "Shephards Pipe carol" by John Rutter!
So thanx Abi and here is her fab post.......................
Hi, It's lovely to be in a different place!
Today I'm guest posting from the lovely Jo's blog! If you don't know me, i'm Abi, I'm 18 years old and an avid crafter. Please stop along at some point and say hi at my blog where Jo is posting!
So..today I wanted to share a little bit of crafting love and share how to make this..
2. After you have made lots of these find a nice piece of cardstock or cardboard. I used a small plate as a template and drew round it . I then drew another circle about 3 inches inside the big one. Cut this out so you have a wreath shape as your base.
3. Stick the little trumpet funnels on the cardstock base. You will need pretty strong glue for this. The best effect I think is to stick the funnels in a circular pattern as you can see from the pictures. Very simple. Don't be afraid to layer them up, place them in each other or slightly under each other. You are trying to create as much texture as possible.
The inspiration for this was taken from this site.
5. The next step is to make the golden flower at the bottom. Again cut out five circles from a double sided material. I drew around a selloptape ring to get my template! It is best here if you use thin paper, tissue paper or material.
this site. The wreath looks lovely without it though so it can just be an added extra!
Thanks for stopping by
Loves Abi xxxxx
