Have you ever made your Christmas gifts? As you can imagine, I have in the past. Most years it’s been something really nice and festive to do but I do remember with a real lack of fondness, the year I was far, far too ambitious! I even roped Nick in and the poor boy spent an entire day cutting the pages I had designed for my tear notepads. Then the frosted glass spray paint didn’t work for the personalised bottles I’d dreamt up, peeling off as it dried and I had to come up with a different idea on the fly to rectify this disaster. See, even DIY bloggers have fails sometimes and needless to say the whole day wasn’t the most enjoyable.
Well looky here, this is rather a girly post for you all this fine Tuesday. When I discovered metallic gold leather paint…well…it had me at ‘hello’ that’s all I can say. But what to make? I went digging around to find the leftover white leather from a previous DIY project and was all smiles to find there was enough left to fashion a clutch bag. All mine have died a death in one way or another over the years.
