I am happy to announce a very cute feature here on my lovely blog! The great Katha and I teamed up to share DIY ideas and recipes that inspire you and us!
The basic idea is to pick materials we both use for crafts and see what the other comes up with! The first „challenge“ was v-day inspired so we chose
PACKING PAPER and FELT to work with.
Curious about what we made?! Look:
So you found something cute for your special someone for Valentine’s day – yay! I’m sure he or she will get even more excited if you wrap it up this pretty.
Here’s what you’ll need:
sheets of felt in different colours
needle & thread
It’s really simple.
1. Cut out little hearts from the felt.
2. Sew the hearts together.
3. Wrap your gifts in packing paper.
4. Decorate them with the little felt heart garlands.
There you have it – a cheap, simple and oh so pretty way to wrap up your gifts!
Valentine’s day for me is all about flours and when I found this gorgeous tutorial online I knew what I wanted to create for our challenge: A Flower bouquet!
You will need packing paper, clay, felt, wire and crepe paper (to wrap around the „stems“ of wire).
First, create the flowers as explained in the tutorial linked above.
And now, cut hearts from your felt.
Make sure to leave a piece of felt at the bottom of your heart. That’s where you glue it to the wire. Now, sew around the outlines of your hearts and remember to leave the bottom open. Stuff it with fibre fill.
Put hot glue on the long open part and attach the wire.
Form a bouquet and wrap the crepe paper around the „stem“. You may also want to add a cute ribbon that matches the whole colour scheme.
Such a pretty valentine’s decoration!
So… did you join us? If you did – please leave a link to your work! We would LOVE to see what you created from felt and packing paper!
