Graduation card

hi ,my best friend Alison told me how to make this card,( thanks Alison x x she is a fab card maker & she s my craft guru :-)) i used black square cardstock, then slightly smaller red card, then another smaller black card then white card stamped with black die ink script. the cap was made using 2 small squares of black card , one slightly smaller than the other. I made the red tassle using red embroidery thread and using a needle threaded it through the centre of the larger black square, securing underneath with tape. the smaller square was then attached using foam squares, then attached to script card with foam squares too. the scroll was made using parchment paper with a small piece of red ribbon tied around it. Then the 'congratulations was stamped with black pigment ink and embossed with black sparkle embossing powder onto red card and secured with foam tape to bottom of card

Sparkly Pens

Hi I made these pens to give as gifts. I got the idea from someone's blog but i have tried to re find it and i am very sorry but i can t find it again to give that person the credit for this idea, but i think I saw it on this site .

first of all you cut a piece of paper large enough to wrap around the pen, decorate it as you like, I just stamped a swirly pattern on it. then attach double sided tape ( the very sticky kind) to the undecorated side ( I used Suze Weinberg's wonder tape). Then attach this to the pen.Then cut another piece of tape and place it over the top of the coloured paper, making sure there are no gaps. Then roll the pen in small glass beads and press them into the tape, then sprinkle over with fine glitter to fill in any tiny bits.
