Hello Wall Hanging

Morning peeps!

Well the weather here in Norfolk is abysmal - bleugh! Rain, wind, more rain and more wind mixed with more rain. The poor chickens are turning into ducks :o(

Okay, onto my project :o)

For the last issue of Homemaker magazine (issue 44) they asked me to try out the new Silhouette Mint. This is a little machine that means you can make your own custom stamps. You can either purchase images through Silhouette or create your own.

I decided to do a simple 'Hello' wall hanging. I created four stamps with the letters h, e, l and o and another with a ditsy floral corner.

I purchased some birch plywood squares (similar to what wooden coasters are made from) and painted them in a lovely white chalk paint. After stamping the lettering and floral corners I mounted the wood squares onto pink ribbon for hanging.

Here are the pictures from the magazine...

I hope you like my little make, it was fun to do something different. There are lots more scrummy projects to be found on the Homemaker website.

That is all from me for the moment, hopefully I will be back soon with some more makes.

Thank you for visiting. TTFN! x
