Squares !

Hope you all had a super Easter and where able to spend time with your loved ones friends and family.
I have been trying to write my little post here for over half an hour and I’m lost for words ! Why is that ?  ( asking and answering my own questions now ! ) well mainly because I don’t have anything to complain or moan about ! For those of you who are reading my blog for the first time it is usually filled with the latter but in a cheery way if that’s possible. So I had just better get on and show you my piccies.

Over at Just for Fun Von has set us a challenge and the theme this week is  ” Square ” I try every week to play along as I really love these ladies . Sorry am a bit late but as they say  ( who are they ? ) better late than never.

I made a sort of pocket thingy ma jig with much difficulty I may add ( does this count as moaning ) and covered it with some pretty papers from my stash which I distressed a little at the edges.

I then made three square tags with some over acetates from Crafty Individuals mini books which I had left over from another project. I backed them onto various papers , distressed with coordinating  inks, added a ribbon , made a little flower for the front. All the little tags have images at the back as does the pocket thingy ma jig but didn’t want to bore you with too many photos. The three tags each fit into their own little pockets which I don’t think is quite clear from the image above but they are there I assure you.
Also want to enter  ( my second  entry) for the Crafty Individuals challenge which is  ” Square or Squares.

Hope you like them.

  4. Χριστός Ανέστη, Marie. They are very beautiful and I like thw distressed look very much. Quite a lot of work for the project I assume. Thank you for your nice comment.

  5. Gorgeous project xYou asked on my upcycling post about the coke can how to flatten the metal – I cut off the top and bottom then cut into the sheet o flatten it out. I cut pieces to the size of the die and found once it had been run through the diecut machine it stayed flat anyway. The metal is quite thin – not as thick as you would imagine it. Have a go just be careful not to cut your fingers xx Janet
