52 Crafts in 52 Weeks – Week Three and a Summer Giveaway!

Hello everyone!  I can't believe another week has already come and gone!  Today is Monday and that means it is time for another craft project to be featured here, the third of fifty two!

This week we tried potato printing.  We made a strawberry design with a cookie cutter in a potato and then had fun printing on card stock which we cut to different shapes and sizes...

The idea is from 'Ideas Magazine' April – 2012.

After we had printed to our hearts' content, we either folded, neatened or punched holes in the cards to make postcards, tags, wrapping paper, mini cards and larger cards.  Then we used double-sided tape to secure some pretty ribbons to each one...

Such a simple and fun craft, but so effective!

...And before I end off this post, I would like to share a little surprise with you all...

As it is almost a year since the last time I hosted a giveaway on Beautiful Girlhood, I decided to have another one to celebrate the lovely hot weather we are experiencing here in South Africa and to thank my lovely followers for sticking by me even when I neglect my blog for a few weeks at a time!

I am offering this lovely set of colourful printed strawberry stationery to one lucky follower...
The gift includes 1x wrapping paper (30cm x 15cm); 2x large card (15cm x 15cm); 2x postcards (9.5cm x 14cm); 2x mini cards (8cm x 9xm) and 2x gift tags (8cm x 10cm).

Each card and tag was lovingly handmade by me for you...

The giveaway will work as follows:

The giveaway is open to any reader anywhere in world.  The prize will be posted to the winner.
