You know yesterday I said I managed a bit of crafty indulgence over the weekend, well it was inspired by the new challenge at Allsorts
. I am ashamed to say that it has been a while since I have entered any of their challenges as work commitments meant I only had time for DT pieces, most of which weren't suitable. So when I saw the Fancy Folds challenge this week that was inspiration enough for me to make time to play and here is what I made.
and this rubbish picture shows how it will look when it comes out of the envelope
Like the one I shared last week it looks complicated but in actual fact is very easy.
The beauty is that it is flat for posting and yet stands centre stage in the mantelpiece!!
I have also been itching to have a go at colouring on kraft again and was inspired by Jules
and her lovely work in Quick Cards Made Easy.
Here are the measurements if you fancy having a go!!
You need card stock 11" long and about 4" wide. Score the long edge at 1", 2.75", 3.75", 5.50", 7.25", 8.25" and 10". Cut a slot along the 5.50" (halfway score) leaving half an inch either side so that your mat can fit through. Score and fold, decorate a 5" x 3" mat, making sure it is one layer only otherwise it won't slide through, poke it through the slot between the flaps inside and secure with wet glue or extra sticky tape. If my instructions are pants (!!!) I am sure you will find demos on YouTube!!
If you are still with me, thank you !! See you Thursday xx
