Merry-Go-Round x


Hello you lovely lot,
I hope this finds you all well? Have you been crafting? Is in Christmas yet for your crafting or is it still too early for you? I’ve been working away on Christmas makes already so felt that my latest tutorial should be the same

Away last year my lovely editor challenged me to create something different and of course I jumped at the the challenge, a little Merry-Go-Round. It was designed especially for the Hunkydory Magazine but decided I had to make it again. This is the original design using the magazine kit

What do you think? The original had a fantasy feeling with the unicorn stamps and gold mirror card and embellishments. I knew I wanted to make the next one a little different and with Christmas on my desk, decided to go with it

I used some older Christmas papers from the Craft Consortium called Candy Christmas and teamed it with brown cardstock and older pink papers to layer. The cute little Deer is a digi stamp I found on Etsy from Zekesami, here is the link. I coloured it up with my Copic Markers adding some glitter to the antlers and spots.

The gems are mostly from my stash that I got from AliExpress or Chloe’s Creative Cards and the very bright pink ribbon I got from Amazon in a pack. I also added some wee battery fairy lights, gluing the battery pack into the Gift Box Base and feeding through to hide around the edges

The fun part is the Merry-Go-Round actually turns. I fitted a piece of pipe to help keep it steady in the middle and when you turn the top the wee Deers are go round like old fashioned hobby horses. See the wee video below to see it working

My tutorial will show you how easy it is to make your own, even with a few mistakes lol. You can create your own by using the free download found over at Craft World HQ, free to all members. 

I hope you will create your own. Especially making your own Christmas Decoration or Trinket/Gift Box with plenty from to fit a gift, treat, sweets or even a Gift Card for someone Special 

You can also find more of my YouTube tutorials on my channel, why not check them out.

I best get back to work, more Christmas makes. Until next time
