2 Craft Projects With Self Adhesive Star Stickers

Christmas is creeping up scarily fast, I've even ended up doing some online shopping to help me be a bit more organised, and I didn't feel like trawling busy shops feeling ill. But I have been Christmas crafting with some of the festive goodies Baker Ross sent me as part of their blogger network.

One of the items I was most looking forward to working with was the bag of self adhesive felt stickers they sent. Although not obviously Christmas I liked the range of colours and sizes in the packet and thought they would work well for a few ideas I had.

In the end I ended up with two different projects using the stickers which I thought I'd share in a blog. Both ideas are fairly easy to make, and cheap too! I wanted to create something different other than just putting the stickers on card, and hopefully I've achieved that.

Felt Stocking

The first felt stocking I ever made I did last year with a Spot the dog design for my little nephew. I really enjoyed sewing it up, and although the stocking is quite small I think you can still fit a fair few things in, such as make-up, small toys, pens, jewellery etc, and then it's a gift someone can enjoy for years to come. If you're not very good at drawing then Google is great for outline templates to help. I used a sharp embroidery needle to sew the star on to the felt, and quite sturdy felt so it would hold some treats inside.





Handmade Card

This just started off with a pair of festive pipe cleaners from a bag I'd bought a while ago but never used. I struggled to think of something to do with them, and then decided to try sticking them on a card in a bauble shape. The rest of the design just followed from there, with the stickers, and some of a festive ribbon reel from Baker Ross, and a cheeky dab of glitter finishing off the card.

Both ideas were pretty quick to make, and there's plenty of time for you to have a go with your own designs, so why not see what different uses you can find for a sticker or two.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
