A Treat For Me
I must confess that I am not usually Martha's biggest fan. While out shopping the other day I came across this very large book of crafts from Martha and after skimming through I just had to take it home with me. I was pleasantly surprised at the numerous different crafts this book contained. What made it even more appealing was all the wonderfully colored photo's.... I do like to see what the finished project is supposed to look like. I finally settled on making some fabric flowers. First I had to stiffen the fabric and then let it dry. Next it was just a matter of punching out the flowers with a flower punch. Once the stamens were added and wrapped with some floral tape the flowers were done. What fun these would be tied to a birthday gift, I must admit it could get pretty addictive making these. I love how they have been glued to these branches and placed in a vase. It would be fun to color co-ordinate them with any room. I think there is something for everyone in this book, I just adore these little pom pom critters....... and there was even a chapter on soap making. I thought these soaps were just so lovely. As you have probably guessed, I am pretty pleased with my new book.
