Crafty Creatives

So far I haven’t shared any of my makes from February’s Crafty Creatives Box, so without further ado, here are a couple of the makes.  The first is a design that features on their blog, and as I had a friend’s birthday to craft for I decided to make it:


The candles are straws from the box and the green stripey tape was also in the box.  I only had to add a stamp, some string for the candle wicks and a card.  It was lovely and quick to make and made a really effective card.

The kit inside the box was a spotty clay heart.  I’ve never tried crafting with polymer clay, and was really excited about trying this kit. My kit had pink and blue clay and these are the pendants I created from the instructions:


I made the blue one first and then mixed the colours to make the purple one.  There was plenty of clay in the kit, so I gave the rest to Daisy to play with.  This is what she came up with:


She made two pendants and then with the last of the clay she made some clay beads which she is planning on turning into a bracelet. 

This box is far and away my favourite so far, I loved the kit and there was nothing in the box I won't use.
