Gingersnaps Birthday hop








This is the third annual Ginger, copper rust themed challenge to celebrate Gingers birthday. A number of the design team have created pieces in celebration. We would love any visitors who would like to bop to hop over and visit all the great creations. You can also join in the challenge.


My partner, John, makes wonderful musical instruments. Guitars, Mandolins, Ukuleles etc. They are just beautiful and sound glorious. Very loud with a very long sustain to the sound. I truly don't know how he manages it. Very talented and gifted. Anyhow the reason why I am ranting on is because it leads me to this creation. It is a little bag for his plectrums. Unfortunately  I cannot really take credit for the original idea as I came across this in one of my books I was browsing through again. It came from Rubber Stamp Extravaganza by Vesta Abel. I don't really feel I can give out the details too much as it is printed in a book. Just to say it uses Ultimate bond tape and it feels absolutely lush. It feels almost like snakeskin and is very flexible and feels quite strong. It is certainly a technique I will use again.


Please hop over Gingers and visit other people too! We would really love to hear from you.
