The mittens are so pretty, love the colours.
And the gluten free baking looks amazing, my friend and her 6 year old have both recently been diagnosed, I will have to pass on those recipes.
Inselaeffchen and I have teamed up for the Quest for the Philosopher's Stone - we are calling ourselves the "Flourish and Blotts Slytherpuffs", as it is one of both of our favourite shops
And so, to the first challenge...
Challenge: PS #1
Team: Flourish and Blotts Slytherpuffs
Project: I have recently discovered Pocket Letters and I managed to avoid adding yet another collectible craft to the list for about a week before caving! Pocket Letters were created by Janette Lane - http://www.pocketletterpals.com/ - and they are based on the 9 pocket folder inserts for storing trading/collectible cards. The swap has a theme and you fill each pocket with a decorated card in the theme (basically an ATC) and hide a little gift in each one. The gifts can be teabags or coffee sachets, lengths of ribbons, paper elements, etc. One pocket always holds a little "hello, this is a bit about me" message.
This one's theme was "all about you", so I chose a colour theme I love - black and white and one colour, in this case pink. I added a letter about me, I added a recipe that includes my 3 favourite things, some ribbons - all things that I love. The little tissue paper envelope held some buttons and bits in the same colour way - I have found wrapping them is safer, otherwise they all fall out! It is great fun when you receive one and get to go through all the pockets finding all the hidden gifts.
