Hexagon Kuwaii

Birthday Party Live – Project #7

It’s the last project of the Birthday Party Live series!! It’s gone by so fast! I thought I would end the series with this cute Kawaii inspired hexagon pencil pot. And you don’t need a lot to make one! Each one turns out differently because of the random stamping technique used to decorate each of the pots.

I chose to keep these ones quite simple, with a cute flower pattern and a face. Both stamps are from the Hippo Happiness stamp set. As you can see from the photograph, the pots are a good size and fit pens / pencils, glue, stamp blocks and many other things.

The Petal Pink version in the video below was done in the same way. All three are glued together with Tombow and helps to keep things together on a craft table. My daughter has stolen the Purple Posy version from me, but I still have the Petal Pink one.

Which colour do you prefer?

Matchbox Library Part 2

MatchboxLibrary_Pic

In our last blog post, we made the matchboxes to hold our embellishments – but in their current form, once weighted with goodies, they may fall over and become troublesome. To overcome this and make sure they acted as a desk tidy, I created a container big enough to hold all seven of my boxes neatly and keep them upright.

I didn’t go overboard with decoration on the container as where it is located on my desk means 3 sides aren’t visible, so I went with a simple rainbow of matching colours on the front. The off cuts are the same size as the card behind the letters.

The container has a reinforced front and rear to give extra protection and provide a little extra stability once placed on a desk waiting to be used. I love mine and couldn’t wait to share it with you. Of course, if you wish to add more or less matchboxes, the measurements can be altered to suit!
