Another make......D

Hi all

I do hope you are all enjoying a crafty weekend.  I have managed to finish crocheting a baby blanket (another project out of the way lol) and then of course wandered to my sanctuaryto sit and think what to do.  The other day a colleague at work gave me a bag ful of broken jewellery and at the bottom of the bag were heaps of bangles.  So that was it an idea was born.  I decided to make a pen holder for her desk.  Kind of upcycling her bangles and giving them back to her lol.


bangles, glue, gesso
pink and cream acrylic
odd flowers and leaves from my stash
lace and bead trim from my stash
Velvet ribbon from my stash for the inside rim
Marvel dry milk tin lid for base
rub n buff to finish it off

Well thats it for today......

Hugz and love 


  1. Elaine... that is a pretty awesome pencil holder and I bet your co-worker is going to be thrilled to get them back in this new form!

  2. What a cool idea, Elaine! That came out great - your friend won´t believe what you made from the old stuff!
    Wish you a merry christmas!


Thank you for your comments. I really do appreciate them and they make my love of crafting much more worthwhile.
