Today I have the second set of photos from the Mold meeting on Thursday evening where Joanna showed us how to make a Christmas bauble from old greetings cards. These of course can be made from stamped cards. By which I mean stamp some card to make them - not cut up stamped cards you have received. That would be such a shame.
Joanna very kindly cut out the circles for us that were needed - 20 each person. Fortunately she has a die to do that for her 4 at a time. The circles are folded in such a way that a small triangle appears in the centre with 3 flaps surrounding it. These flaps are used to glue it all together. Here are the photos & once again there are a couple of blurry ones - not my fault this time - some of them wouldn't sop spinning;

That one is definitely spinning

Still with its paper clips in to hold it together.

Fiona has a facebook page & when I went to check my emails after getting home
she had put photo of her bauble up for everyone to see.

This one made by Rhiannon
& last but not least
this one made by Sheelagh.
Well, actually it isn't last as I also took a group photo of some of the samples that Joanna had brought along with her to show us.
The left one was made from old greetings cards, the little one is a really small version & the one on the right is made from silver card which has been sprayed with inks.
I enjoyed having a go at making one of these but found my fingers were not as flexible as they could have been - so it took me a while. I certainly don't think I could manage one of those small ones. The circles we used were were about 2". The one I made is still in my box & held together with paper clips. I will look it out later & see what it looks like, fingers crossed it hasn't got squashed,
That's it for today - more tomorrow.
I now have to get ready to go out as we are meeting up with a friend for a long leisurely chatty lunch - well more like late afternoon / early evening lunch, seeing as it is afternoon already.
'Bye for now.
