Welcome to my Crafty Corner Blog.
My Name is Kerry and I have been crafting since 2009
I am married with children and four grandchildren who also love to explore nannys craft room!
I was first introduced to the world of craft by a friend who had me hooked on iris folding.
As my interest grew so did the collection of paper, stamps and inks.. I was taking over our dinning room, so my husband then decided to
turn our spare room into a lovely organised craft room! it didn’t stay organised for long lol.
My passion is anything vintage and I love altered art, I mainly make MDF hearts at the moment and I have also started up cycling, so I try not throw everything away.
I hope you enjoy visiting my blog, and get some inspiration from it, I will share new things that I have made, and hope to explain any pit falls and tips I find along the way. So if you decided to try some of them for yourself you may find this useful.
I am always eager to hear from fellow crafters with different ideas and feedback.
Please feel free to contact me via Email – Kez.firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks For Visiting,
Great site. I attended a make and take at oyster stamps some time ago and I am sure you said that we could use a Pringles tube for altered art or so do I just use gesso as in the bottles first..
Made the tissue box a number of times everyone loves them. Thanks for your inspiration
My email is email@example.com looking toward to hearing from you
lovely to hear from you and thank you for following my blog, its always appreciated.
When decorating the pringles tube it really depends on what your going to cover it with, if using thick paper you could glued this straight on, even chalky paint will go on with out the need for a primer. Having said that I really prefer to use the gesso as it gives a good base for anything to adhere to, also you have a nice clean blank surface to work on, as you can give a couple of coats of gesso if needed so as to cover up the writing etc on the tube.
The tissue boxes were a big hit when we did them at Oyster stamps on the make and take, great fun, you can decorate them in so many ways. And as you say, you have made a number of them, they make a lovely gift.
Thank you for leaving your comment and I hope this has helped in answering your question.
Have a lovely Christmas and pop in again soon xx
