Sour Cream Containers

Last week was the third week for teaching two
 lovely young ladies their new skill.

They have to learn a new skill for their
Duke of Edinburgh's Award and they chose to learn

I tought them how to make these lovely sour cream container sweet holders, which were
an ideal gift for Mother's Day.

We chose to use the designer series papers - Attic Boutique and Twitterpated.
I showed them how to make the flowers using the simply scored then let them
decide how they wanted to decorate the containers

They did an awesome job and i'm sure they looked too
good to open.

Twitterpated Money Gift Wallet

I appologise for my absense from blogging.  The months seem to be passing by ever too quickly.

I have just been recouperating after an operation and thought I would get lots of crafting done, unfortunately this didn't happen. My energy levels and motivation just seemed to be lacking.
I am now back at work and normal duties and enjoy being back in my craft room

I was recently asked by a friend to help her daughter and a friend out.  The girls are working on their
Duke of Edinburgh Award with their school and are working towards learning a new skill.
They have chosen to learn card making.  They need to spend at least 1 hour each week for the next
3 months learning their new skill.

This week we make a money wallet using the Designer Series Papers, Twitterpated.
The wallets look quite different with the green card  as apposed to the blue.

The girls have done so well with their wallets, they look really neat.
Well done to them both. Great effort.
