Birthday bauble.......



There's a new challenge at Papertake Weekly - anything goes sponsored by LOTV  Optional extra is to use newsprint or the pages from an old book  -  I decided to make a hanging birthday bauble and used an image  from a LOTV artpad. (Ribbon Girl sells similar 70mm clear two-part baubles with hanging loops - you only need one half to make a hanging bauble card)

I die cut the image, backing paper and outer card then I glued tiny pink rosebuds, 10mm and 20mm WOC pink open roses on to my image before fixing on the cover.  The name was printed with our little wooden alphabet stamps and added to the image.  I used my new Bosch rechargeable glue gun to stick the flowers, half-bauble and the 5mm crystal beads onto the card then added some 23mm organza ribbon and rose pink tiny ric rac to the hanging loop at the top

I hope you will be able to join in the challenge this week - the design team have made some really lovely projects!

similar baubles, crystal beads, ribbon, ric rac, flowers are all from www.ribbongirl.co.uk

This is gorgeous Mary! What a splendid idea to use half a Christmas bauble. I have some of these (I know they are somewhere!!) and I see that if I can't find them then I can buy them in your shop! I would love to know how you attach the half to the backing. I so want to make one of these - yours is lovely!!! Hugs, Lesley

Silly me. I was so in love with your creation that I didn't read the "how to" you so helpfully wrote beneath it! Now I just have to find the glue gun! I know I have one somewhere
Hugs, Lesley
