My Creative Space - Finished projects and a cardboard village



Way back in July I posted a sneak peak at this ruffled beauty... this is what it became... a scarf! Not a skirt as everyone guessed.



Trialling a few hair pieces with bows! This is in lovely ivory Thai silk. I use a lot of wedding fabric off cuts from this lovely lady.



Anya and I made tiaras out of pipe cleaners - they went down a treat... I may have taken mine off to answer the door!





The most basic of cardboard villages was set up on our dining table - inspired by Ruby's little theatre. I didn't go to as much trouble as Ruby but it was enjoyed all the same - we left it up for 24 hrs then it got 'moved' - hello recycling.





No village is complete without a train for the locals to catch. Bob the builder waiting patiently on the platform. Seriously Anya LOVED this project... she got so excited about what we could make from different cardboard objects.... if you are wondering what everyone else is up to today - visit Kirsty's.

Thanks for sharing some great ideas. I'm off to find to dig the pipe cleaners out of the cupboard - at least an hours peace in that project for my kids!
