February Monthly Summary

Earlier this month Elle showed you how to create these delicious Fruit Pavlovas. Perfect for Mother’s Day, this desert is elegant and simple enough to create for a big dinner party (or for a treat!) Using seasonal fruit, these Pavlovas taste just as delicious as they look!

With the fun new First Edition Deco Mache papers, we transformed some used pop bottles into lovely planters to create our own mini garden! Why not create your own and fill them with your choice of greenery?

Our Three Ways With feature looks at creative ways to craft – and this month we explored weaving! Maxine took you through three fun ways to incorporate this method in your crafting to create some fun makes that will look great in your home. What’s your favourite way to use weaving within your crafts?
