Bloom Like A Rose Printer Tray by Jennie

Hello to you all and lovely to be back here at Calico Craft Parts with another project for you.

My grand-daughter asked me before Christmas if I would make her a "grown up" present for her bedroom (she is five!). And so here it is. She's a lover of pink and she is also a very good gardener having grown seeds for the last couple of years to glorious blooms and wants to grow Roses this year.

I thought an open printer tray would provide a good base for showcasing some roses in various different forms.

An appropriate stencil! ......

..... and these Rose napkins have been used so often but are absolutely glorious! I have crackled the surface but it is difficult to photograph well.

The printers tray Rose Bramble fitted the bill too and makes a lovely frame for the box. And any ivy flourish as a backing to two paper roses.

And then of course it is always possible to personalise any project using Calico Craft Parts Create Your Own Word. I rather love this font which fitted nicely with the letters of her name.

I think she will love this and hopefully will inspire her to grow her Roses.

As always thank you for joining me today and happy crafting.

  1. It's absolutely charming, Jennie - a lovely "grown-up" shabby chic garden full of roses. I'm sure Caitlyn will love it.
