I was searching on Twitter yesterday and came across a cute free crochet design for a Peter Pan collar. This also lead me to a great website called The Making Spot which contains lots of fantastic craft designers, ideas, free crochet patterns and lots more.
I thought I’d share with you a couple of free crochet jewellery designs that I came across today, I’m definitely going to start by making this cute peter Pan collar designed by Carol Meldrum.

I discovered these Free Luxury Best of British Papers in my Craft Beautiful magazine a few weeks ago and decided today I would make something with them!
I’m forever using post it notes as bookmarks so I thought I’d create something a bit more fun! I downloaded the free printable and created the bookmarks in Photoshop but they could also be made by simply printing the papers and then cutting and sticking them together??
I cut a slit in the middle of the design and simply pushed a paper clip through.
If anybody fancies making some bookmarks or needs any free papers check out Craft Beautiful’s archive, they have a nice collection.
Well here is my very own handmade valentine gift….An Origami Fortune Cookie in a Mini Take Out Box!! I’m using mine as a valentine gift with a personal message but I think it could be used and decorated for all sorts of occasions such as weddings, birthdays, new year or it can even be used as a mini jewellery gift box. I found a template for the take out box at Mirkwood Designs, you will find lots of box templates that you can use for all your handmade crafting needs on there. I was going to create a tutorial to make an origami fortune cookie but I’ve found two great examples that helped me: 1. HP Fortune Cookie Tutorial 2.Origami Fortune Cookies from The Pretty Blog, both come with free templates you can use!!

Its been a while since I published my last post! I’ve been busy making and creating which i will update you on very soon. But in the mean time I though I’d share with you these easy peasy Bird clips I made way before Christmas. I used mine to hang my Christmas Cards up with. I Tied garden string around the banister and attached my Christmas Cards using these. Since then I’ve been using them to organise my scrap fabrics and papers together and I’m sure you can find a million other uses for them so they don’t need to go into the loft with all the other Christmas decorations. They are really simple, so simple in fact you probably don’t need a tutorial to show you how to make them………but I made one anyway! Hope you like it…..
I’ve been wanting to make one of these for some time I’d just not got round to it. I’ve used mine as a keyring for one of my cupboards but it could be used as a Christmas decoration, hung on a door handle or draw knob. I know I say this every time but its really simple to make, I’m a complete novice but this is how did it…
