Do You...

Remember these........they bring back memories of gluing and sticking in Infants School, using last years Christmas cards and any old odds and ends you could find.



.. I thought I'd turn them into quick and easy little gifts. These K&Co pads and borders have been in the drawer for an age, the paper is self adhesive so that made things even quicker. So based on this I made these.
The borders when cut made fabulous eyes!

I cut some frame shapes (Yes Sizzix again!) and made something along the same lines but a little different.The owl is from Hero Arts

I think he's really cute! (There I go again with the cute thing!)Though he might be a she...with the flower in her hair she's very Frida Khalo!


They make great little stocking fillers.....

What a coincidence! I saw some of those calendars on the counter of my local art shop yesterday and remarked to the sales assistant that they took me back to primary school in the *cough* sixties. Mine never looked this cool though!
