Hi to you all 
hope you all had a good Easter 
and in the uk hope you are having a good bank holiday monday 
although weather might not be good but thats a bank holiday lol 
a good excuse to go craft 

Now on to what I have been doing with the lovely parcel 
I received from 

To day is doily day 
here is what I have made 

project one 

To make this project I have used a bag I had
I have folded two doilies for the skirt
I have folded the middle part of a green one and a outer part of the blue
to create the top part  and I have added some small gems
I have attached to the bag with foam pads
link to the folded skirt

Project 2

For this project I was thinking of summer time and barbeques
all I have done is wrap a doily around a glass with a candle in it
and tied a ribbon around to hold
you could used led lights for a safer way with children

Project 3

I have made a card and envelope
to make the envelope I have used a template
and card I have wrapped a doily around the top edge
I have added some pearls and a sentiment stamp

The card snicking out

full view of the card
I have used a pre scored white card
I have folded a doily over the top edge and added a ribbon
I have also added a stamp sentiment

Project 4
