Craft Tutorial: Stiffened Fabric Bookmark

Fabric Bookmark4

I’m so excited that over the weekend, my friend K and her husband are coming down to Brighton for the first time since we moved here – and then I remembered; she had asked me to make her a bookmark (which was quite a while ago.

Needle Felting Tutorial: Skulls for Halloween

Skulls for Halloween 5

I have a confession to make today – I am a Halloween virgin. No, never experienced ‘Trick or Treat’ (little bit sad, really).

Making Stationery with Waxed Papers

Making Stationery 5

As you can see in the past two posts (here and here), I’ve been obsessed with waxed papers. And I’m hoping that you are as crazy as I am about waxed papers, because today I’m going to show you what I’ve been making with them.

The thing about waxed papers is that you can’t treat them like ordinary papers; you can’t use stickers or glue on them because… well, they are waxed and nothing sticks on them! Hope the tutorial will give you some inspirations on what to use waxed papers for! Read More
