Sunday's with Crissy

 I am so late in posting this as I have been up solid for two nights and I have just had a little well earned sleep, I lost another puppy very early in the morning, and all day yesterday I thought I was going to loose another one, he is really happy and healthy and just believe it or not, had trapped wind that was upsetting him, after some help to go to toilet every half hour and some infacol he is so much better, this is because he was piling on the weight 79 grams in one day is not very good, but he seems to have settled down now and I am more relaxed, sorry I haven't gotten around to you all but I will do by the end of the day....








 This month over at Sunday's With Crissy" the challenge is Distressing, and Crissy also has a DT call it is very relaxed being on Crissy's team and requires just one card a month, so if you love Crissy's images as much as me go try out, the details are HERE, please read them carefully...

A keepsake for the tiny leavers

Every year I try to make a little something for the year six class that is leaving primary, they have a little prom and I make a button hole and a little corsage for the girls, it is something for them to keep also as I think primary is the best years for the kiddies....


Here is what you will need for each one, a circle punch I cut out 3, I have a ribbon hole punch and I cut one circle with 2 slits, I use 3 LEAFS, a length of SEAM BINDING and 2 TRELLIS ROSES...


I use wet glue and pop a lot on, I put the 3 leafs in the place i want them to be...


I then stick on the Trellis roses and hold them in place for a few seconds to make sure the glue has gripped them...


I take the circle with the slots in and thread my Seam Binding through making sure I have the same amount at each end...


I add some more wet glue making sure there is some on the Seam Binding too, this is so it doesn't pull out...


I then stick the Trellis Roses on tot he ribbon again holding for a few seconds to make sure it has gripped...


The bottom of it should look like this, I then glue the last remaining circle to the bottom part so that the Seam Binding stays in place and the bottom is tidy...


This is what it looks like when it is finished, these are for little kiddies, if you wanted to do one for an adult, you can use nestie circles and add feather, gems, stamens and so on...


I leave for half an hour or so just to make sure it stays in place and dried nicely...


I tried really hard with this picture to get the sparkle I have sprayed on it, it is really sparkly and gorgeous in real life...


This is the finished corsage and it looks gorgeous...


I have used different coloured flowers and sometimes mix them up I also use different ribbons so they are all different,  thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x  x
