These Xmas Owls have been sent off to Craft Vic and Artisan.
Likewise these Xmas gift tags, using old postage stamps from all over the world. I love seeing all the different imagery, there are some great Xmas stamps out there, mostly from Europe and the US.
We have been assembling components into rings and bracelets with a flower motif, using a split pin to hold everything together. The bracelets have press studs set into the ends.
This was loads of fun, and we will be making more in different designs for boys. I really enjoyed cutting the components and getting everyone to assemble them, I seem to have a compulsion to poke holes into things and join them to other things!
Take this keyring, for example.
Old circuit boards from electrical goods, use a heat gun to knock off all the resistors etc, cut into smaller pieces on the bandsaw, sand the corners off, drill a hole, attach a split ring and keyring clasp - too easy!
