Wedding Table Decorations with Creativ Company

Hi there Crafters! It's been an absolute joy having the lovely Jill Ablas from Creativ Company at Hochanda today. We love the product so much that we have got our hands on an amazing project for you!


An artificial wedding cake made from white boxes which are glued together, just to jazz up your table decorations on your big day. Decorated with artificial sugar balls made with a Pearl Pen and flowers made from textured paper, it the perfect addition to your table. Small boxes with satin ribbon, decorated with the same flowers as the the cake, which you could even use as favour boxes.




Step 1


Print and cut out the template which is available as a separate PDF file for this idea. Draw the outline of the template onto textured paper. Here we have made approx. 30 flowers in four different sizes.




Step 2

Roll each flower/snail shape around a pencil as shown. 







Step 3

Put a small blob of glue in the middle of the flower as shown and tighten the petals.






Step 4 

Secure the rolled up petals onto the lower part of the snail with glue.






Step 5 

Assemble the boxes and tie a satin ribbon around each box. Decorate the top of each box with a glued-on flower.






Step 6 

Remove the lids of the three largest boxes and cover the outside of the boxes with coloured textured paper, using VTR Glue. Put the lids back onto the boxes and glue the boxes together with the largest one at the bottom. Glue the flowers onto the boxes like a vine from the top and down.




Step 7 

Use a Pearl Pen for making sugar balls/icing around the edge at the bottom of each box. Leave to dry.

How To Give Used Candle Jars A New Lease Of Life

Hello again everyone, I have a completely different post for you this time!


I keep buying all this ‘stuff’ and it’s so nice I can’t bring myself to use it … but it’s starting to get out of control and taking over my home!!
So I’m challenging myself on 2 levels – 1) use up my stuff; and 2) try something new.

Well I had some empty candle jars so I thought this would be a good way to use up some stuff and try something new at the same time and this is what I came up with.

I am over the moon with the results as it’s the first time I’ve tried anything like this.

What I used: ·Empty candle jar ·Decoart white gesso ·Starlight paints ·Decoart metallic paints ·Imagination Crafts rice papers ·Imagination Crafts fabric glue ·Twine ·Raffia ·Hessian ·Ribbon ·Paper flowers and embellishments from craft box
Here’s what I did:
Firstly, I applied a coat of white gesso to the jar and allowed it to dry. I then chose a selection of paints that go together and randomly sponged all over the jar until it was covered. T…

How To Give A Contemporary Twist To Nordic Themed Christmas Card by Leanne McAlpine

Hello again everyone,
Today I’m sharing with you how to create a contemporary Nordic Christmas card using the new Nordic range from Crafter’s Companion.
This card is really easy to make and although I’ve used fabric you could easily use scraps of paper instead.
I have purposely not used even pressure when stamping the script stamp to give a more distressed look. I tend not to add sentiments to my cards until I’m going to use them so the sentiment could be placed anywhere on this card.

Here is what you will need:

●Card blank - I’ve used 6x6 here ●Hessian ●Nordic themed fabric ●Used drinks can ●Bird mixed media die from Nordic range ●Script stamp ●Co-ordinating ribbon ●Twine ●Button ●Sue Wilson holly branch die ●Kraft card ●Faux pine branch ●Gold glitter embossing powder ●Pigment embossing pad ●Heat embossing tool ●Die-cutting machine – I use Gemini
So here is what I did; Stamp script stamp using clear embossing pad to left side of card and cover with embossing powder; heat it to set.Cut a roug…
