Morning all,

It's the last day of the month and time for all of the fabulous Funkette's from Funkyhand to show off some new creations with Anice's older downloads. It refreshes our memories, and is a chance to showcase the beautiful papers, sentiments and flowers on this particular download - 'Paper Blossom'  Here's my card:


Paper Blossom

To make my card I printed lots of different papers off, 
used a new die from 'Crafts too', 
cut out the flower shapes to form a flower, 
made a mini rosette by using a strip of paper and 
cut out a sentiment from this download too.
Hope you likey.

Princess Stepper Card

Morning lovely Crafters,


It's Debbie here to do a quick post of what I've made this week. I really fancied doing a different shaped card for a change so decided on a A6 stepper card and I wanted to play with Funkyhand's Little-princess craft paper download and this is what I came up with.

Now I've never made these flowers before so here are a few pics of how I did them. I'd seen them being done on a the telly so wanted to have a go.


Cut a strip of paper and cut into it like a I have leaving a band at the top to glue.It's a fringe effect.
Roll it up from one end to the other then tease the fringed papers out and you're left with this funky flower. You've probably seen it before but I enjoyed trying something new.

Why not try something new with your lovely Funkyhand papers etc. Why not pop over to Get funky and craft and tell us what you've made lately with your funkyhand products and if we've inspired you to try something new. You can also leave us a link to your blog or pop it on our Facebook page.Come on everyone lets Get funky and craft.

See you all soon.
