☀️Snazzy Sunday☀️

hiya!  So for this weeks Snazzy Sunday post I am going to share with you something I made a wee while ago for my Mum.  I thought I would have my Marshmallow plushies made in time but they weren’t. Prob be finished Tuesday I think, so keep a watch out. Mr and Mrs Marsh are so cute!! Can’t wait to finish and show u. Anyway back to my bags …

My next door neighbour has a business from home making personalised bags with cute girl pictures painted on them amongst other things. I wanted to make one for my Mum and was invited along to her house to learn how to make one.  I was so lucky and very excited. 😋

I already had an idea of what I wanted my bag to look like, with the colour of her hair etc so I first of all drew the picture of it with pencil onto paper and then copied it onto the bag.


I was then shown how to start layering the fabric paints to create shade and definition into the hair etc 💁🏼


I used a mixture of matte and metallic paints.


I also used glitter fabric paints to add some extra sparkle and glitter. It’s so gorgeous when it hits the light.

To finish off I wrote Mummy on it and added a ribbon on which I threaded through a heart charm to attach it to the bag.


She was so thrilled and has been using it loads!


Here is some of the bags I own that are of a similar design and inspired me. The cupcake bag was made for me by my neighbour. They are called moomoobags. The smaller one I got from my Aunty Lou and it’s a Clareabella bag. I absolutely love them. 🎀💕💜

Have a great rest of your Sunday

Bye

Washi Tape!!

hi guys! I’m writing this post at my bbf’s ( best blogger friend ) house. And today I’m going to do a post on WASHI TAPE! If you don’t already know,  washi tape is like masking tape but its pattered and coloured and you can write on it, tear it easily, and it is very cheap and easy to use. 

Washi means Japanese paper and has been used in Japan for over 1,000 years and is made from Japanese shrubs  unlike western paper which is made from tree pulp.  Washi tape was created in 2006 by a masking tape company in Japan.  It is known here for the beautiful designs that are printed or painted on it.  Westerners only call it washi tape, In Japan its just known as masking tape. 

If you are interested in reading more about how its made, pop over to http://www.tofugu.com (since when has masking tape been this fun? Since Washi tape !  So cool !!  ) 

So I’m going to show you all the washi tape and ducktape I have and then show you what I’ve done with, where you can get it, how much it is and other stuff like that. Just remember that I live in the UK so won’t be the same as USA or other countries. So Let’s get Started!   

 

  

So that’s all my ducktape and washi tape I 💕❤️ it!!! The wee rolls in the middle I got in a pack of 3 and there were 75p each ( UK money ), super cheap as they were on sale.  Woo hoo. The duck tape was £1.50 each from Hobbycraft.                   

Duck tape and Washi Tape are very different.  As I said above you can write and draw on the Washi tape whereas you cant on the Duck tape. I have tried and it smudges. But I think  the duck tape  is more waterproof and durable and there was definetly  more designs available (in our shop anyway). You can also get it in thicker rolls so you can make bigger items like purses etc. Washi tape would def be too flimsy for that.  I love that we have the two options to choose from.  I used a mixture of the both in the things I made below.

These are the things I’ve made with Washi Tape

  

I am so excited about this!! My new light switch for my bedroom. Was soooooo easy to do. 

Because the tape is sticky but also repositionable, you can lift straight back off if it was squinty.  I then used a craft knife to trim the edges. To finish off I used my favourite glittery nail polish on the actual switch.   

I also decorated my favourite nail polish bottles from Justice. I think they look so snazzy !  

 

I am going to have to stop myself from Washi taping everything in sight !  😜

   

I made the moustache bookmark above and also did a wee heart picture too.

💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜Washi wish list. I need/I want 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

 

Paperchase has some totally cute tape, this one above is currently on sale £2.25. Steal !!  The one below is from Hobbycraft and is £3.50 but they have 3 for 2 sale at the moment 

  

There is loads of video tutorials on you tube on how to make all sorts of things. U can even do your nails with them. Would have to be careful with the craft knife though 😁. Pinterest, other blogs have sooooo many cool ideas   I cant wait to try them all !! 

So I’m off to bed now to dream of Washi with my newly covered Blog ideas book beside me. 

 

Hope u enjoyed this post and I have inspired you to join the rest of the world who has gone Washi crazy 😜😜

☀️ Snazzy Sunday ☀️

Hi guys! This is a new thing called Snazzy Sunday. So every Sunday I will post an Creative thing whether it’s drawing, knitting, doing cool things with my hair or nails etc etc , it will be awesome!

For me Sundays are all about relaxing because most of the week I have a lot and I mean a lot of things going on so it’s very rare that I get to properly chill❄️ so for this week as it is Mother’s Day I’m going to be making something for my Mum … A handy bag !!

👇What You’ll Need 👇                                                                                                           A canvas bag, glue, buttons and glitter glue

How to make it!                                                                                                                 First you’ll want to draw your hand on the bag.                                                                   Next get your pva glue and glue your hand ( the hand on your bag not yours! ). Now you just want to stick random buttons on the print.

This next step is optional get your glitter glue and write Mummy’s/ Mum’s handy bag, leave it to dry and your Finished!

Have a great Mother’s Day, if you try this then leave a message in the comments and if you haven’t already go and check out my other posts!
