altered embroidery hoop


This is another project for my design team duties for Simply Create. This months box was filled with papers from Glitz Design, buttons, twine, chipboard shapes and a few other bits and bobs.

I spotted these embroidery hoops in my local craft shop and had a eureka moment!

The large nestie circle is the perfect size to fit the frame. I then used the next nestie down to cut out the yellow circle from the designer paper and inked the edges. I stamped the bird and cut out the flower (also from the papers). I inked the hoop, messy business. Added the little roses, buttons and twine. Job done.
