I love bell pulls. I'm hoping Karl can make the holders out of wood to make them more of a keepsake for the family. My plans are to make three of them. Wish me luck
We give gift cards every year. We have teen-agers and I don't attempt to keep up with the trends. Four teens, four different tastes. (Our ten year old is so easy to buy for. She loves everything.) The cards make it easy for them and they shop the Boxing Day sales to get more bang for their buck. These were in the book....................
and these are three of the ones we are giving. Not quite so fancy.
I have a little thing I do when working with my books. Some of the books have pictures on one page and directions on the other. I'm a visual person. I love pictures..............they save a thousand words in my book. Give me ten photos for the directions instead of ten steps and I'll have it made in a flash. Sometimes the written word just isn't enough. I highlight things -- this time with my pink one - and I put a great big clip on the page I need, be it the directions or the photo. Doesn't matter it saves me a lot of page turning during the process.
Do I recommend this book? Yes I do. Will I make everything in it? No, I won't. But it will be here on my shelf for reference and maybe for making something another year.
Tomorrow..............a tutorial on how to make those little hanger thingies.
