Crafty Creatives Catch Up: Boxes 7 and 8

Happy Friday crafters!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Crafty Creatives box, so for those of you that are fans of the craft subscription box service, here we go with two in one post!

CC Box 7 was a woodland themed box with beads, buttons, fabric and pendants. It felt autumnal with the leaves, pine cones and natural colours.

The highlight of the box for me was the Needle Felting Kit. I’ve wanted to try needle felting for ages, so it was a welcome treat.

The box suggested leaf patterns which I’ve yet to try, but I did make this cute needle felted heart whilst on the phone! It really is so simple and I was quite shocked to discover this. Obviously, you should be super careful with the needle (it has tiny barbs on the end to felt the wool) as I hear it’s very painful to stab yourself with one!

I’m going to be making my heart into a brooch and will sew tiny beads onto it I think.

The theme for CC Box 8 was Spots and Stripes! I’m a big fan of polka dots, so as soon as I saw the paper I got excited.

The art card was my favourite of all the boxes so far. I’ve followed¬†Paul Heard‘s work for a while now and his use of colour never fails to make me smile.Crafty Creatives Box 8

The polka dot cupcake cases are utterly perfect for my new adventures with Dizzy the Kitchen Aid and the polymer clay (not pictured) and jewellery making supplies are going to be a lot of fun.

Who can resist a bit of washi tape and fabric too?! A really good selection I think.

Finally, I want to share with you my crochet mouse which I made from the CC Box 5 Kit. How cute is he? I think I will make some more of them for my kitty to play with, but next time use a smaller hook so it has a tighter finish. What do you think?
