One of the items in the TangleStore which ticks over regularly is this set of 3 ‘Instructional Craft Badges‘, featuring vintage book illustrations and ‘sage advice from bygone crafters’.
I was singularly tickled to receive an email yesterday from Kris Bailey with a pic (below) of what she had done with her set! Putting slight feelings of inadequacy aside (suddenly my plain kraft packaging looks somewhat lacklustre…) I’m sure Kris’ friend Jan* will adore this witty, hand-lettered, handmade birthday card with badges for embellishment – so much fun! I’ve been thinking about making some cards to go with the badges for ages (who doesn’t love a badge on their birthday card – especially if it doesn’t tell their age! 😉 ), and Kris has definitely provided me with some inspiration here.
This rather pleasant surprise set me to thinking – have you done something creative with any TangleCrafty goodies? If so, please do drop me a line. It’s fascinating to see what happens to my stuff after it ventures out into the world…
