Dresser and basket.

These were the last two things I taught at Cleo Crafts before the shop closed. The little basket is made from a single sheet of a4 paper and that includes the handle. I must give credit to Kate for it was she who showed me how to do it and kindly allowed me to pass it on. Even though its made of paper it is quite strong and it would be easy to get carried away. There were quite a few baskets floating about the house for a day or two.

The card is supposed to look like a dressing table. We cut a piece out of the base card with a nest abilities die to make it look like the. Ornate bottom. The two little drawers were stamped with versamark pearl ink and because it is quite slow drying, especially on pearlised card, it smudged a wee bit but this just added to the vintage feel. The mirror section is framed with part of a Marianne Creatables die. We then stamped the little envelope, cut it out and raised it on a foam pad. The little rose was plain ivory but the edges were tinted with a little bit of purple inka gold which also gives a lovely sheen. The drawer pulls are actually made from two little buckle things with a gem, secured with pin flair glue gel, in the middle.

It's been strange not preparing for classes each week but I've learnt such a lot and look forward to the future and new and exciting challenges......
