I just love colourful, funky wrapping paper and tissue paper. I seem to have quite a collection now, but then we like using tissue paper on our stall and when posting out orders. Cool wrapping papers are great for so many things:
- Wrapping gifts
- Covering ugly boxes
- Framing as a piece of art
- Jazzing up a dull shelving unit
- And much more…
Not done this in a while! This afternoon I made some cards for June 3rd fair.
Sorry I’ve been a bit slack in posting lately! Things are a little crazy as we are hoping to move shortly. Don’t worry, we’re not going far!
This morning however, I am chilling out in my craft room with a cup of lemon and ginger tea while I look at what needs to be done today and what ingredients I need to order. Off the top of my head, I know I definitely need to order some grapefruit oil. I also need to start making body butters for the June Summer Market in Chalfont St Peter, which really isn’t that far away now! ☀
We’ve got a few Christmas fairs coming up shortly, and I recently bought some new burlap to cover our stall table, and so I needed to find a way to get our Soap Cabin name onto it, this time so that it is big enough to see at a distance, and so that the letters line up.
I basically got 2 packs of sponge letters from The Works and stuck them onto card with extra tacky glue. Once dry, I cut the card so that I had the individual words, and then I dabbed my black ink pad onto the letters and practiced stamping onto some pink paper before I do the final stamp onto the burlap table cover. (I’ll share that later after I’ve done it). Rubber stamping would do a better job, just because the sponge compresses quite a bit, but we’ll see what happens!
Yesterday was a bit of a sleepy Saturday. I was quite tired from a long week plus recovering from a cold, and after having breakfast at the Breadhouse in Chalfont St Peter and a short walk around the common, I came home and decided to get my card making kit out and replenish my stock seeing as the Christmas fairs are fast approaching! I should really have been making a start on my regular monthly soap order, but the body was not willing!
