It was John Next Doors turn to produce some goodies to play with and here they are.
A 12 x 12 sheet of Core-dinations, patterned paper, ribbon, rope, gems and a card tube which I have cut into 3 on this pic, (I only just remembered in time to photograph the goodies).
Here is what I came up with -------
I painted the tubes with Acrylic paint in different shades of brown, even though 2 of them look the same colour.
I used some Docrafts paper from a goodie bag last year to make some flowers using Marianne dies.
Also put some on the base which is a very sturdy piece of cardboard, inked around the edges, matted and layered with brown card and paper.
Tied ribbon around two of the tubes.
I used a X Cut punch to make an border on the paper and wrapped around the top of two of the tubes.
