I've been a busy bee lately....

You may or may not have noticed that I've not been posting as much as I usually do... there is a reason - I've been a busy bee getting ready for a craft fayre that I'm doing on Saturday with my crafting buddy Shirley.  We are both soooo excited!!

Originally we were just going to make cards to sell, but then decided we needed to make other bits and bobs - things like gift boxes, gift bags, note pads, post-it note holders, bookmarks, candles....... I've been having a great time as you can imagine all that crafting......  So today I thought I would share with you a gift bag I've made from an envelope - yep an envelope!  I saw the idea in a magazine and then looked up a couple of tutorials on YouTube and voila:-

OK now I gotta admit that I've shown you the one which is most definitely my favourite (he he!!!)  I stamped the design randomly over the envelope before I scored and folded it.

I thought I would enter this into these challenges this week:-

So I will be back tomorrow with more photos of other bits and bobs that I've been making!  Until then...

Happy Crafting
