Carts with covers

I love love love my carts, no doubt about that but they are not the prettiest to look at now that Ive filled them to the brim :D. So as a kitten will move in with us in about a week I decided it was time to do something. I don’t want the kitteh to play with all my tape and lace and paper so whats a girl to do.

Well she buys more wax cloth and has hubby sew covers (I don’t like sewing large things like that). They are easily made (yes I say that even after I enlisted help 😉 ) because its just a square with a tunnel (on the top and bottom) for the elastic band. Measure your cart, cut the wax cloth and sew the tunnel. Pull the elastic band through the tunnel, make a temporary knot, put the cover on the cart and pull the elastic band tight and tie a knot. Done.

If its a little bigger then you wanted or if you want the cover to overlap, just cut open the tunnel a little and the cloth will overlap – the great thing about wax cloth is that it wont fray. If your cart is very high you could add some velcro in the middle where it overlaps. Or you could just add velcro on both sides and not bother with sewing at all!

Christmas card / Thank you card

It’s the season to share the love you have for others but it’s also the season that seems to have the least hours per day. So I ended up making a very quick and easy card to attach to the flower arrangement I bought to give to my grandma ❤

It’s pre scored card, a christmas tree freebie from some magazine (probably Scrapbook Inspirations, it used to come with a lot of freebies and I’ve accumulated a few over the years) and Tim Holtz Distress Stickles glitter glue.

I drew glittery lines with the glue and added glitter glue to the ornaments on the tree. I attached the tree with foam pads for a little dimension.

On the inside I stamped Merry Christmas & Happy New Year and a personal greeting.

Took less than ten minutes to make including drying time using a heat gun.
