Something To Share

Morning peeps and hope everyone is OK and having a good BH xxx

I’ve posted this on the wild Orchid Crafts blog but thought I’d share it here as well. I think this is the bloggy equivalent of my ‘phone voice’ cos I was on my best behaviour when I posted it lol !!!


I thought I’d share this gift wallet which I made for my daughter to give to her friend who is getting married at the weekend.

They are giving money as their wedding gift but didn’t want to just put it into the card so she asked me to make something for her and this is what I did.




 It’s simply made from a sheet of A4 card on which I’d printed Pink Petticoat Pretty Little Hearts.

I used Gold solid on one side and the negative image on the other (which is the inside of the wallet). Then I used the positive image for the outside.

I folded it into 3,  taped the bottom section on the 2 outer edges then decorated it.




The beautiful blooms and embellishments I used were  ……



35mm Wild Rose in yellow which I then Glimmer Misted


White Heather Stems which are new in and are of course to symbolise good luck



8mm semi-open roses, again in yellow



White Pearl Stamens



Pearlescent Gold Head Pins



5mm Brown Self Adhesive Pearls

You could co-ordinate this to match your wedding card and easily adapt it to hold gift vouchers etc.

And by using poinsettias and seasonal embellishments, it would be fab for Christmas.

Have a great day and happy crafting xxx
