Friends with flair Friday

Hello and here we are Friday again I'm so glad this week has gone quickly for me as now its the weekend and i can hopefully relax a little. I had a brainwave to start some gifts for the teachers as we only have about 5 weeks left of school, normally so disorganised that i buy flowers on the last day of school so hope that they will like my handmade gifts. I bought a 6x4 frame and a scented candle from the 99p shop and set about making them pretty.

I have used a couple of my {Ippity} sets for this. I finally inked up my "bit of burlap" stamp and i love it :0) I started by using a white paint dabber on the frame , then I stamped on my cotton rag paper it has a lovely texture. I have stamped straight onto the candle then added the band of paper, again using the burlap stamp so that it co-ordinates with the frame. Now just a card to make and the set will be complete.

If you want to see more "friends with flair" visit the Unity blog , here and don't forget to keep looking for the blinkie and leave a comment for the chance to win 25 fab Unity stamps.

Thanks for looking.

  1. Those are really beautiful and so very personal. My eldest daughter is a teacher and believe me when I say there are only so many 'worlds best teacher' mugs you can fit in a cupboard. :-)
    Your gifts are so individual and pretty.
