Winter Crop

I had such a great time at the Winter crop I hosted today!!!!
I hope everyone else did as well.
Not that I got a lot done, but I really enjoyed spending time with my friends….which is my whole purpose of hosting these
But if I get some creating done…bonus ;)

I didn't get around to putting together treat bags for my friends, so I made them all bone folders :)
I took a wood stick (about the size of a tongue depressor) and cut the end to the shape of a bone folder and then sanded it down.
I then punched a hole at the other end with my Crop A Dile and threaded some twine through it with a jewel on the end.

I was thinking of painting the wood, but then thought the paint would transfer on the paper when it was used.
I then thought I would stamp the recipients names or initials on the end, but the wood didn't take the stamp very well.
Lastly I thought of inking the jewel with alcohol ink to add some colour.
But then I though, just keep it simple…which is hard to do sometimes ;)

What else do we do at a crop besides creating and spending time with friends…eat of course, teehee.
I made some finger sandwiches and some veggies and dip. 
Myra brought some cupcakes, as I forgot ;)
For supper we all pitched in for some pizza and wings, as well as a yummy salad made by Verna :)

Thank you to all of my friends who were able to come to my crop today…because of you, you made my day a really good one….Thank you.
I hope you all enjoyed a very Creative Saturday :)

  7. Oh! I had to ask google what a bone folder was - I thought you were using a fancy name for book marks! And here I always just use whatever is handy!!!! Now I know another crafting item that I need. :-) :-) :-)
