The last few photos of things that caught my eye at the Frankfurt craft fair. This first little cupcake shaped box is one I decorated in a make and take - looks good enough to eat doesn't it? My mum used to put those silver ball things on trifles at Christmas, so I thought of her when I was making this.
They had cake stands filled with non edible sweet treats.....
I loved the wedge shaped cake slice boxes with the chocolate sprinkles, imagine these filled with home made chocolate truffles for a gift...
The rolled up paper on this decorated bird house was a banknote. A little bird was holding it in it's beak. Cute!
I have no idea how the flowers on this box card were made, I don't speak German, and they didn't speak English, but they were so pretty, they really gleamed, so I think they had covered each bloom in glossy accents
This is a poor photo, but I liked the idea, they were four tiny camera charms mounted onto the card with ribbons, the sentiment says Smile
A quilled butterfly..... and an origami frog
and the next ones were all on the Copic stand The woman there was a bit brusque (especially when she heard I was a ProMarker fan), and didn't seem to like us taking a lot of photos, so they are a bit badly focused. Some of the images are digi images from Saturated Canary
That's all the photos from the German show, I hope you've enjoyed seeing them. I am going to the big UK trade show in two weeks time, so will be able to bring you the latest and greatest from the UK. I have had a couple of comments from Australia, looking longingly at some of the new products I have posted. Good news for you. Mandy Hall of Scrappy-go-Lucky is bringing a lot of fabulous stuff over to Australia for the very first time, all expected in the next few weeks, so keep an eye on her site, because the stuff will fly out the door when it gets there
I'll have the names of the first challenge winners on Tuesday, and will be setting a new challenge with more exciting prizes from Letraset.
