......so it was probably about 15 minutes after finishing this post about sticking to the list that I had the papers and scissors out to make a decoration for the front door. This is a sideways way of showing you that I had this book for Christmas and had been itching to use it. Its a book of patterns based on folk patterns. It has a disc with it so that you can print out the papers you want. I see stacks of beautiful papers at craft shop but they always strike me with a complete inability to choose one and then its impossible to use them. This way I can print them out as I need them.
I thought about writing a tutorial for this but as all I did was cut out some birds, leaves and hearts. then strung them up on blue wool with some bells. the only clever bit which I forgot to take a photo of is where i stuck the string to the door. I used a very unattractive splodge of blue tac to attatch the string but then pressed a button onto it which covers the blue tac beautifully.
Its added a bit of fun to a very ordinary door on a very ordinary house.
