A rainy bank holiday last Tuesday and whilst entertaining my two little ones with painty crafty stuff I discovered funky foam!! I was die-cutting shapes from it to make into basic stamps for the girls to use with their paints when I got a little carried away and tried to make a flower after seeing one recently on the Marianne Facebook page. A dab of hot glue later and my flower was made and I was suddenly addicted...especially when I discovered that I could colour and distress it with my fave Distress Inks. So every evening since I have been creating little flowers, leaves, butterflies and swirls from funky foam to add to a photo frame blank and tissue box blank to make a pretty gift set for my partner's mum's birthday. I decided to make it in neutral colours to go with their new bedroom decor......
Ta da.....here they are
