Pretty Poppys

Hi Bloggers

I wasn't really sure whether to say 'Good Morning' or 'Good Night' seeing as its 12.48am right now so I went with the simple Hi :-)

I wanted to share something I made a couple of days ago, something a bit different for me


Now I know that when we moved to the bungalow I was going to stop saving everything with the intention of using them for some sort of project but I just couldn't throw away the plastic rings from the inside of dst rolls, they would make great mini wreaths. So thats what I did

I just love poppy stamps, dies and images and the stamp I used for these flowers was in a freebie set, along with the dies, in a Crafters Companion magazine pack. I stamped them with a brown inkpad and coloured with ProMarkers in Cornflower, Denim & Pastel blues. 
Firstly I covered the whole of the plastic ring with the blue gingham ribbon, leaving long tails and making a hanging loop at the top. Once the ring was covered I layered up the poppy petals, added the centres and used Glossy Accents on them for a bit of shine. I made the banner myself, coloured with the same blue markers, edged with the brown inkpad, and I used a small £1 alphabet stamp set from Hobbycraft. The sentiment isn't perfectly straight but I'm happy with it 

I hope you like it, and I have more rings saved to make more wreaths 
:-)

Happy Crafting
