Z-Fold Card

Today, I am sharing the birthday card I made recently for my nephew.
This is my first try at making a Z-fold card, after seeing a few on different blogs.
I followed a tutorial found on Pinterest.

Using snippets of the Papermania papers, I cut and glued two panels to the front
and back of the card base.
 I then die cut the letters from snippets of navy blue card and also gold mirror
card in my stash.  I glued them together by slightly offsetting them, which makes
them stand out more against the tan card and checked paper.
 The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Rectangles
Alphabet dies - Brand unknown
Docrafts Papermania Papers - Heritage Press
EK Success punch - Small Circle
Sentiment stamp - Craft magazine free gift
Challenges entered:-
Pixies's Snippets Playground #381 - Anything Goes

Crafters Castle - Anything Goes

A Drawstring Bag

I made this little drawstring bag for my great niece for Christmas which I had
completely forgotten to share with you.
As I had bought her a Pom Pom maker, along with some balls of
wool, I thought it would be handy for her to keep it all together in a bag.
I followed a tutorial on YouTube HERE
The unicorn fabric is from
Geoff’s Remnant Shop, Brentwood, Essex
