Bookends




I made these cupcake bookends from wood. The cherries are made from air-drying clay and a piece of wire with a sticker for the leave. I used scrapbooking paper to make the cupcake cases and sprinkled iridescent glitter on the white paint whilst it was drying to make the frosting. I made sprinkles from pink and purple buttons. I attached the cupcake to the base and added some diamontes and pink pearls to decorate it.

Graduation Card


This is the graduation card I made for Andrew. I made a silhouette of a male graduate and then added a red ribbon (his university's colour) decorated with 2 diamontes to make the hood and used some red thread to make the hat's tassel. I rolled up a small piece of card and tied it with another piece of thread. I added a silver card border strip that I had wrapped with yet another piece of the red ribbon. This time I finished it with some silver dots. I finally added Andrew's university logo to the bottom right-hand corner and a silver border to complete the card.
