New Twists on Old Ideas…

Hi Everyone

A couple more Sassafras Lass ideas today. Here I have taken 2 previous ideas of mine and just given them a new purpose!

Ruffle Flower Invitations

These are fun to make and I am guessing would be a unique idea – especially amongst your non-crafty friends. Instead of giving out a flat invitation – why not think 3D! 

Your invite is sure to be a hit and what’s more – it will probably ensure that none of your guests forget the date.. 

It goes without saying that this idea can be adapted to any occasion and you can see my tutorial on how to make the flowers here. I have used the Indie Girl Collection from Sassafras Lass – it has some lovely printed paper and I have just printed onto the patterned paper and then used Spellbinders to cut and emboss the scalloped circles.

Lachlan Memory Book

OK – so this is just ANOTHER example of my folded mini – but I just love this technique and the 4″x3″ book that is produced is so perfect and small for slipping into a purse..


This one has some fun pictures of my son and all the things he got up to last year. I have used the Apple Jack Collection from Sassafras Lass along with some rubons from the Kaisercraft Jungle Bug Collection and various stickers and thickers!

Family Memory Book

Another folded mini I made a while back for my MIL when she was in hospital. I had the kids do handprints and then I scanned then in and printed to put onto the pages. I thought it might be a nice way for her to feel them a little closer…


This one uses the Restoration line from Crate Paper – one of my faves from last year!

Please check out my Tutorial Page for instructions on how to make these and many other projects.

Next week I have some “Kids Craft” Ideas coming up – not so much ideas for stuff you can do with your kids – more stuff that you can make – give to them, keep them busy therefore creating some more crafty time for yourself!!

Lowri :-)
