Hello craft lovelies! It’s been a mad mad week, but I’ve finished work for 2012, completed my wholesale orders and found teeny bits of time for crafting, yey!
The final Crafty Creatives box of the year arrived a little earlier than usual, in order to beat the Christmas post rush.
As ever, the items are of great quality and value and the theme is truly inspired. After an icy week of cycling to and from work in below zero temperatures and hard frosts, it was a lovely to have a pretty collection of icy themed craft items to cosy up with.
The box included glass beads, snowflake stickers, glass pendants and hearts, paillettes, gemstones, elastic, choker wire, an art card and furry white wool.
The kit was for a mini bath bomb DIY which I was chuffed about as making them has been on my craft bucket list for a while. Check out the youtube video tutorial for making them as you don’t need to have the kit to try!
I made a fireplace garland with the furry yarn by crocheting a chain and adding my handmade Christmas ornaments along it. I had already made a felt Christmas ornament (using this tutorial) and wanted to jazz it up a little, so I am currently stitching the paillettes around the edge.
Have you made something with a Crafty Creatives box?
It’s been a while since I shared my Crafty Creatives box contents, so I thought I’d share the most recent crafty makes from the Gothic Halloween themed Box (CC Box 4) and the Nostalgia Christmas themed Box (CC Box 5).
If you are new to the concept, for a fee of £12.95 (including P&P). Crafty Creatives deliver a themed box of craft supplies to your door once a month. So far, they have been winners everytime! Have a look at my previous box posts here.*
The Gothic Box included a kit to make a masquerade mask and lots of dark papers, fabrics and jewellery making items. I used these purple resin roses to make some rings.
The nostalgic box included Christmas themed items and some lovely paper and wood pieces I will likely use in my smash book. I couldn’t resist making a Cinnamon Stick Candle with the bundle they provided. Any excuse for glue gun action. I added a festive ribbon too.
The pendants and jewellery supplies included in the boxes were really quirky and fun. I particularly loved the teacup and saucer so fixed them together and onto a chain to make a teacup necklace. I made earrings and pendants with the other items.
The Crafty Creatives boxes are great to push you out of your crafting comfort zones and I loved the holiday themed boxes. Not to mention that the recent one included a kit to make a cute little crochet mouse eek!
What do you think of my makes? Have you made anything from the Crafty Creatives Boxes?
I am sharing this post at Handmade Monday, come and see what others have been up to!
*Please note, this is not a sponsored post, I just enjoyed the Crafty Creatives boxes so much I felt compelled to share them 🙂
