Yes, I am having a new love affair. Please do not tell my sewing machine. She could well be jealous.
My new love is paper punching. There is a fantastic Paper Craft shop here in Hong Kong (thank you to Emily for telling me about this shop!) I have been able to slowly build up my collection of different punches. My newest one is this large Monarch Butterfly punch (it is 4.5cm across the widest -top- part of the wing span)
Last week, I sewed some together to make 3D butterfly garlands for the birthday party.
Sewing two together means you get this 3D effect. I am loving this look.
What are you making this week? There's a lot of creating going on over here at My Creative Spaces, do go and have a look, it is so inspiring.
