About Me

My photo
With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Wall hanging by Sharyn

Sharyn made a wall hanging.
A beautiful wallhanging featuring Australian native flowers decorating a monogrammed alphabet.


(My terrible photography does not do it justice.)


I thought at first that she had machine embroidered the letters, but...


The letters are painted!


Sharyn has combined her love of quilting and folk art.
Lovely!

Easy gift wrapping bow.

I struggle with gift wrapping sometimes.
I've learnt different ribbon making techniques but this simple one is my favourite.
Too easy! And quite pretty, I think.


The 2 main white ribbons are cut to size around the gift and simply joined with sticky tape on the top
(which will be covered by the ribbon anyway).


Then fold the top ribbon so it looks like the above. Put a staple in it to stop it moving. Now cut a small piece of ribbon and strap it over the middle of the bow. Sticky tape it closed. I used double sided tape to then attach it to the parcel/ribbon. (Or you could glue it or roll a piece of tape backwards around itself.)

Ta da!

(I know it's not rocket science but it's certainly quick and easy!)
