My Scrapbooking

Crafty Fridays!

blogged by me domestic goddess On 7/30/2010 07:47:00 PM
August is soon upon us, and the girls and I have so much planned, we thought why not share some of our crafty days with you, my blog readers!
Every Friday in August, I will have a little tutorial/ step by step that the girls and I have made, baked and created. We have lots to share with you, including a crafty treat that Lilly showed me how to make; I cannot wait to share it with you all.

Next Friday our Crafty Friday treat will be buttons! Suitable for age 8 + ; under 8 may need adult supervision. Lilly is 7 and did need some help.

Supplies needed:

1 skein of embroidery thread
aprox 20 x 3/4" - 1" diameter buttons
aprox 70 smaller buttons no more than 1/2" diameter
1 x 3/4" (aprox) wooden bead
Embroidery needle

your buttons can be a mix of colours or tones of a chosen colour! Ypu shouldnt need to go out and buy buttons, we manage to make 3 Crafty Friday project and still I ahve far too many buttons left to count, LOL!

And here is a small taster of what next week has in store! We do hope you will join us every Friday in August for some crafty fun and prizes.

I am now back to the kitchen, where baking and cooking is the order of the day. This weekend is our big family party, where I will be host to about 60 guests!

Have a great weekend, I will be back Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by..
