Evening everyone, hope you’re all well?
I’m just watching last nights ‘Great British Bake Off’ final, I’ve watched this every year since it started and I enjoy it.I love baking but don’t very often because I’m the one who ends up eating it all lol
I don’t seem to cook much at all now, Jess isn’t here and Joe is rarely in. It seems so much easier to pop into M&S and get a ready meal and to be honest not much more expensive by the time you’ve bought all the ingredients. I like cooking and made a meal every night when the kids were little and we all used to sit down at the table together for tea. We always did when I was growing up and I suppose it rubbed off on me, it’s nice to chat about the day and have some family time
Don’t forget that there’s another Lili of the Valley show on Create and Craft tomorrow at noon, Dawny is doing the show with Leoni so it should be good – don’t miss it!
Onto this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge and for this one our theme is…
Oh Christmas Tree
…so please either make a tree or include one in your card or project
I made this tree out of Frosty Christmas papers, I saw a tutorial in a magazine and fancied having a go. I was pleased with it, I think it would look lovely in the Classic Christmas papers, red and green, and maybe do 3 different sizes
You start by making a cone from card and straighten alomg the bottom so it stands up
Cut strips of paper and curl them
Starting at the bottom using double sided tape round the tree in layers, stick them all the way up. You have to shape them a bit as you get closer top the top and it gets narrower
I trimmed it with a bit of Tim Holtz idealogy silver tinsel
Cut out 5 stars and fold them in half, then stick each half to the next one until you come to the fifth, join this to the first one. I struggled getting it to stand on top so I ended up sticking a cotton bud up into the star and the other end into the tree with some tacky glue
Hope you like it, there’s some great inspiration from the DT ..and as always a prize for the winner who will be announced next Tuesday!
