I’m Moving…

24 Sep

i'm movingI’ve decided to make the move to a self hosted blog so I can have more control over the look and feel of allthingshandmade.org.

For anyone who has subscribed by email then you don’t need to do anything, you will still receive notifications of new posts by email. It’s all my lovely wordpress.com followers that will miss out and I’m hoping that you will all visit my new site and re-subscribe so you don’t miss anything.

I hope to see you all on the other side and thank you for your continued support.

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Tea Party Invitations – Free Printable

19 May

With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee only a couple of weeks away I thought I’d share with you some invitations I have made for a tea party we are having to celebrate the Jubilee.
We enjoyed planning and creating the Mad Hatters Tea Party so much we decided to find another excuse to have another party.
I’ve also included 2 free printable invites for anyone to use, one is blank and the second can be adapted to fit your own date time and venue.
I decorated a plain white envelope with the free jubilee printable you can find on the craft beautiful website
I will keep you posted with everything we do but for now here are the invites…free printable diamond jubilee tea party invitesfree printable diamond jubilee tea party invitesfree printable diamond jubilee tea party invitesfree printable diamond jubilee tea party invitesfree printable diamond jubilee tea party invitesfree printable diamond jubilee tea party invites

Paper Clip Bookmark – Free Printable

12 May

paperclip bookmarksI discovered these Free Luxury Best of British Papers in my Craft Beautiful magazine a few weeks ago and decided today I would make something with them!

I’m forever using post it notes as bookmarks so I thought I’d create something a bit more fun! I downloaded the free printable and created the bookmarks in Photoshop but they could also be made by simply printing the papers and then cutting and sticking them together??

I cut a slit in the middle of the design and simply pushed a paper clip through.

If anybody fancies making some bookmarks or needs any free papers check out Craft Beautiful’s archive, they have a nice collection.

Handmade Crochet Pencil Pot Cover

21 Apr

I’ve just made this crochet pencil pot cover. I’m not the best crocheter in the world, but I made it by creating a circle motif the same width as a baked bean tin. Then crocheted a rectangle wide enough to fit around the diameter of a baked beans tin and finished with shell edging. I stitched them together and hey presto……….handmade crochet pencil pot
