Crochet Bookmark Gift

crochet bookmark gift

I made this crochet bookmark last month as a gift to a friend of my mum's. I made a long rectangle crochet piece of work as shown below. I bought some metal ribbon clasps which are great to add onto fabric/wool bookmarks. I then added a spare dangling earring piece onto the clasp. I originally had a pair of these ear-rings but lost one, but I kept the other for possible crafts. I then added the clasp onto the end of the bookmark. I think it turned out really good. I hope my mum's friend liked it!

Home-made Edible Candle Cake

edible candle cake

This weeks blog post is a project I made at a club I go to (Guides). As shown above it is an edible candle, I made this by rolling up a Mini Swiss Roll Cake in white icing.I then added some yellow icing on the top as wax, next I stuck it to a digestive biscuit. Lastly I added some edible flowers as decoration.

We then wrapped it up with cellophane so that we can give it as a gift. I gave mine to my lovely elderly neighbour who is poorly at the moment. She was really happy with my gift.

Hand Designed Mug


Mug cup painting designing

In the photograph above there is a mug that I decorated for my mum at a club I go to (Guides). I created a mixture of different colored flowers on the outside of the mug. I then painted the inside of the mug different shades of purple and also added some black blotches.I did a miniature version of the same design for the mug handle.
