New Humphrey Decoupage

Morning all, sorry that this is so late but I have been away at the caravan for a few days and we have no internet connection up there, to be honest it is like losing an arm !! So today I thought I would share with you a small set of sewing draws that I made using the new Humphrey Decoupage kit from Crafters Companion. This is the Pick of the Week on Create and Craft so don't miss any of Leann's fifteen shows !!!!

Tutorial for Christmas Ornament

Morning all, well I had a lovely weekend with my daughter Sara at the caravan, it was lovely to spend some time together, although the weather on Saturday was horrendous but we still had a good time. Sorry this has taken so long but as promised here is the tutorial for the Christmas Ornament that was on Create and Craft for the launch of The Snowman for Crafters Companion

You will need:

7 sheets of tea bag papers - I used Cute Companions Winters Tale from Crafters Companion
Bone folder
two pieces of ribbon each piece about 18" long
paper clips or mini pegs
Spray and Sparkle from Crafters Companion

First of all cut out your tea bag squares, with the pattern side outer most fold in half diagonally to make a triangle.

Fold the outer corners into the centre, this should then form a square.

Fold the flaps back on themselves, along the outer edge of the square.

Open out the flaps so that they form a kite shape on each side.
Fold back the point of the kite shape so that it is level with the square.

Then fold the outer edge of the kite in towards the centre.
Fold the outer edges together and glue, at this stage I held together with either
a paper clip or mini pegs. This forms one petal.
When these have dried, the ornament needs to be made in two halves. Firstly you needs to glue five of the petals together to form a flower.

This is how the back will look.

When the flowers have completely dried, you need to stick six together to make one half, one in the middle and five around the outside. You now need to make the second half the same as the first half.

Then spray both halves with Spray and Sparkle.

Glue your two pieces of ribbon to the back of one half.
Then when dry glue both halves together. You may need to use either your paper clips or mini pegs to hold in place until dry.
