Fun Swap

For this swap we were given what I thought was a piece of felt to make something with, it turned out to be absorbent lint that's used to protect urine samples in the post. All I could think of was to make some flowers and use them on a hanging. I wish I had thought about splitting the lint to make thinner flowers as the ones I made were a bit thick.
I stamped some cream card with a lace stamp by the Artistic Stamper and edged it with some distress ink and some Brilliance galaxy gold. I stamped the Crafty Individuals image on to some plain material and then frayed the edges, I also stamped some swirls on the felt flowers. I made the flowers using strips of sari ribbon and organza ribbon using a brad to attach it to the felt flowers. The top was edged with some lace flowers and some beads and the hanger is some sari ribbon.


  1. it's very pretty Hazel and the colours go together beautifully

  2. You did a great job with the flowers and the hanging. It was incredibly absorbant wasn't it LOL. Really pretty. Lynne M x
