Shopping List Tutorial

Image
A quick and easy Tutorial to finish the month
Two versions of a quick and easy shopping list which would make a great gift for Christmas. Any size canvas may be used for this project. Instructions Step1: Using a 18cm x 13cm punch two holes approx 3.5cm from the bottom and 3.5cm from the sides of the canvas. Before punching the holes make sure that they clear the timber frame. Step 2: Cover the canvas with patterned paper of your choice

Step3: Cut a piece of heavy card 18cm x 15cm. Punch two holes to match the two on the canvas. They should be approx 1cm from the top of the board and cut pages from paper the same size as the board . Punch holes to match. Insert album rings into the holes.

Step4: Decorate the canvas as you wish. I have used Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangles, Bella alphas and chipboard kitchen embellishments which I have painted.

If you prefer, the canvas can be turned to use the other orientation.

Monthly Swap at Craft Mad

Our monthly swap at Craft Mad was to design and make a card then send a kit of all the elements of the card to our partner for them to make their version of our card . It was amazing to see all the different styles of cards using the same items. This is the kit I sent to my partner and the card I made.


and this is the kit I received from my partner and the card I made with it.
