I am still here :)

Just been super duper busy - tis that mad season of the year lol! I had this brilliant plan to blog much more during December then we all got one of those bugs and so my master plan got waylaid....

This week's little extra is Tag Time....

I used Pink Petticoat papers, Queen and Co and Prima flowers and lots of doodling... :)

I also made a matching bow

- and here is how I made it (I know that I am not the first to do this but this is the way that I set about it :)

Take some papers - I use Pink Petticoat...

Cut 8 strips to measure 2.5 cm by 15 cm and 4 strips to measure 2.5 cm by 12.5 cm.

Doodle 8 stripey bits on some paper...

Curl each strip around on itself and adhere with DST

Add a doodled strip and adhere with more DST - you can use this to stick them all together later on :)

Stick all of the strips together...

Adhere four pieces in to a star shape...

Assemble the remaining strips and add little strips of paper...

Layer the 2 big stars together...

Add the final star shape...

Add a little flower in the centre....et voila :)


And a couple of cards - this first I made for Rhi's fabulous birdy dare...

And a Stripey one for Saffa's dare...


TFL :)

Fabby tag and bow, Jo (little bit of rhyming for you :D). Thanks for doing instructions - I'm going to attempt one at the weekend.

Cards are great too.
