Firstly I have to apologise for missing a couple.....if you are reading this Julia I will stand in the corner for 5 mins...just as soon as I get 5 mins to spare!!!
Ok, so to business.... here is my desk...
The flowery thing with holes is something I have made after seeing an article on Split Coast Stampers for a faux brad maker. The article used a sheet of cardboard which you had to fold and punch holes in. The problem I had with that is that I don't have circle punches in the sizes I would want brads to be, and even if I did I don't think I would be accurate enough with my punching to get them all to line up properly. So I set about designing my own. I cut several layers on my Gazelle and glued them together to give a good depth. I sacrificed a part of an old stamping may to make the cushioned area inside...voila! a faux brad maker. Now all I need to do is cut out lots of card circles and I can make brads out of anything I want. I don't have a completed one to show you, but they are really quite realistic.
Enough rabbiting on from me.....check out the other desks taking part this week by visiting Julias Blog...The Stamping Ground.
