Is There Such A Thing …..?

I have a whole box of mini jam jars (purloined from many hotel stays!), This morning I had an idea   …… I could make some mini lights for individual place settings for a party ….. BUT….. normal tea lights are too big …. and I wondered if you can get mini tea light type candles,  any ideas??


Candy/Sweetie Jar Cards

These cards all measure 5ins x 5 ins and are made using linen effect card.
sweetie giftwrap
As a person with a terrible sweet tooth, I saw this gift wrap in John Lewis and just had to have it … it’s designed by Emma Davis  and cost £1.75,(SHW89).
 Liquorice Allsorts Card
I have cut out individual jars and then laminated them (top tip, if laminating small cut outs keep them in place with a tiny bit of Pritt before putting them through the machine)
liquorice wheel card
I’ve stuck them down with a foam pad to give them extra dimension on a black gingham background, thinking that then they would then be suitable for either sex, because although a lot of men say they don’t eat sweets, you watch them pinch a few from your packet when you have them!!!
 Red Liquorice Twists card
As a final touch I’ve used Ranger Glossy accents on the jar labels again for extra dimension.

What’s On My Wrist Wednesday!

Claire's Bracelet
Look what I found in Claire’s while I was away at the seaside last weekend  and  looking for a little holiday treat for myself ….…I couldn’t resist, it was so me!
Claire's Accessories
It’s a bracelet which cost £6.50. I stood in the shop counting the links like a numpty, and couldn’t believe there are 36.  For some reason the “Serenity and Honesty” are one link but all the other words are single. I think I am going to wear it for a little while, as I love jewellery with words on and then when I have worn it enough I’m going to disassemble it and use the words on cards and tags ….. watch this space……
