Quirky Challenge

Having only just entered one Quirky Challenge, it's now time for another! Although to be fair, that's only because I stumbled across it a day before it was due to finish! I've decided not to make a card for this one, I have made a little name plate for my son's bedroom door. I've made a couple in the past for friends - great presents for little ones and new babies, but had never got round to making one for poor Thomas!

The recipe for this challenge is to use:

  • Stitching (real or faux)
  • Lace (paper or real)
  • At least two different buttons.
  • and finally a colour: teal or turquoise.
I think I've managed all that! I've used my Nitwits again, this time from Bear Necessities which has a lace frame, plenty of buttons, turquiose paper and faux stitching.

I use 160gsm supersmooth paper/card to print the images on, then cut them out and layer them up and mount the whole thing onto thicker card (quite often a cereal box!), punch a couple of holes and hang it up with some ribbon. 

Hope you all like it!
