Gappy Smile Scrapbook Page

Mini MB has lost her front teeth, and although we are eagerly awaiting the new 'big' teeth, I am well aware that her gorgeous gappy smile won't last forever. The Soiree collection from BoBunny is so pretty, the papers co-ordinate beautifully and make scrapbooking easy!
Coffee Lace
Self Adhesive Pearls

The papers are a dream to work with. I have layered distressed (scissors is my preferred method of distressing!) strips  from the Soiree Stripe paper...making sure to use both sides of the paper!  The circle has been cut from Soiree Boutique paper and attached to the layout using foam pads to give a little extra depth.

Bunting has been cut from the co-ordinating papers and finished with a twine bow.

Strips of the Tilly's floral print ribbon and coffee lace have been stapled around the edge of the circle, the stapling makes attaching the ribbons easy and creates a quirky look!
The flowers have also been cut from the co-ordinating papers, finished with a pearl and attached to the layout. My journaling has been written on the kraft tag and tucked under the circle to preserve the pretty effect.

Transform A Glass Bowl Using Serviettes



Glass Bowl


Ensure your glass bowl is clean and dry (you can clean it with pure alcohol if required).
Carefully Tear the serviette into small pieces
Separate the layers of your will use the very top layer.
Lay a piece of the serviette inside your bowl and 'paint' it to the bowl using the Glass & Tile Part B and a flat paintbrush.
Continue to paint pieces of the serviette to the inside of the bowl to build up the design.
Ensure the bowl is dry (you can use a hairdryer to accelerate drying time) and then apply paint to the inside of your bowl using a sponge. This will really make your design 'pop'. The bowl can be left transparent if desired.

When the paint is fully dry (again a hairdryer can be used to accelerate the drying time), you can carefully remove excess serviette from the rim of the bowl using a craft knife.
The inside of your bowl can be varnished using the finish of your choice.

It's so easy to transform a plain glass bowl into something beautiful!
