A Crafty-Crafted Friend's submission of refreshing fresh fruit skewers.

Craft submitted by Anney of http://blogniako.blogspot.com/

Anney was planning to arrange the fruit skewers into a terracotta pot but she saw this picket fence planter box and thought it was cute.

She used a floral foam for the base and embellished the planter box with vines and a ladybug.

She used cookie cutters to cut out the shapes.

Pretty.. just too pretty. Use lots of heart shapes for this coming Valentine's Day ๐Ÿ™‚

A Crafty-Crafted Friend's submission of a lovely cupcake bouquet.

Craft submitted by Anney of http://blogniako.blogspot.com/

Anney didn't use buttercream frosting for her cupcakes coz she was afraid it will melt and fall apart due to the hot weather. She used melted chocolate and colorful sprinkles. It set quickly and perfectly!She used a glue gun to attach the styrofoam ball into the embellished terracotta pot. She then glued some strips of green japanese paper all over the styro so it will not be visible and for a grassy effect.

She inserted bamboo skewers into the styrofoam ball and attached the cupcakes all the way around.

Merryn: Anney this is one very lovely food craft. Thank you for sharing it with us. I’m sure many will find this interesting and will be keen to do it for any party coming up ๐Ÿ™‚

A Crafty-Crafted Friend's submission of a felt corset purse.

Craft submitted by Ayie of http://jifphotojournal.blogspot.com/

Materials she used:
a piece of felt fabric/material
threads and needle for sewing
jewel/earring/ or any button or ribbon as ornament
beading/jewelry wire or laces

Ayie said,

Sorry I wasn’t able to document each and every step since I wasn’t so sure if it will come out good.ย  I cut the felt in 2 equal rectangles and trimmed lower side to give the corset emphasis. Stitched both pieces together (sewn part inside) to form the purse.ย  After having the body done i decorated the “face” with running stitch using darker shade thread.ย  To achieve a roundish bust form,pull the stitches a bit tighter.ย  Work on the handle with the leftover strip and attach to the purse.ย  Voila, a simple corset purse!

I found this clock in the thrift store and right away I thought of making a clock with my cutie niece’s photos. That’s why I called it 12 hr cuties. We’ve been apart since I left and at least having that clock here at home makes me see her all the time.

Instructions:

~ get clock interior measurement for the face

~ gather photos for layouting (edited in photoshop)

~ disassemble clock, replace with the printed new face

~ assemble back to pieces and there you have it!

{Thank you Ayie for sharing this with us. I’ve personally requested her to share this with us here as I’ve loved this clock from the moment I laid eyes on it – Merryn-}

Hi Merryn, here’s the Octopus Lollipop that I made, inspired by your Spooky Halloween Lollipop. The first few steps are the same as yours. The additional steps are: Cut the tissue paper into 8 strips and twirl them up. Lastly, with a marker pen or highlighter, add some polka dots to the tentacles.

Hi there! This craft’s inspired from Merryn’s paper frame. ย As I commented on her post I had an idea of having it in a collage pattern and told her about it. She then asked me if I can do it and submit it here. I was so pleased with her humbleness so I thought I’ll make this suggestion as soon as I can. I wanted to do more frames but I don’t keep much magazines here and if ever I do, those are my architectural mags so I don’t have the heart to tear them apart. I hope you’ll like this too. Btw, the heart was just a cut out pattern mounted on the paper. The big frame has a smaller frame insert angled just to give a different look. =)
