I've been holding on to these cute little cups for ages now. I have this habit of 'collecting' lots of gorgeous crafty bits and pieces and hording rather than using them. I think most of the thrill for me is to purchase all the nice ribbons, papers and embellishments.... I never seem to want to 'waste' them on this card or that. I have to constantly remind myself that I have all these gorgeous things to use!!! Sitting gathering dust is not what they're here for! So finally I broke open the little cups and made a few of these flowers for the girls I'm going to craft retreat with at the end of March.
As you can see my photography skills haven't improved too much over the past week. I'm working on it........lol.
I wish I could say I came up with this nifty flower idea all by myself - but the very talented Marelle Taylor did, see her bright assortment here! I've seen lots of different ideas for the cups, including using them for jewellery, coins and gardening seeds. I imagine there are a thousand more out there. I'll definitely be keeping a stash on hand.
We have the Canberra day long weekend coming up so I'm looking forward to lots of crafting, reading and relaxing. Rain is forecast, hooray, let's hope we get it. Things are starting to look a little green here which is a very welcome change. I'd love to hear your weekend plans?
