Here is a project I completed, using an MDF door hanger. I painted the edges with an acrylic paint dabber and then covered both sides with patterned papers. I added a cream rub on over the top on one side and some brown rub ons on the other. The Busy sign was made from a chipboard shape covered in patterned paper and ribbon threaded through the slot and stitched. The large flower embellishment was made using my old 1960's flower loom and some paper string I bought in Germany. You wind the string around the loom and then stitch it in the centre to secure it. Not used that for years! fabric rip strips from Studio Calico, some Prima flowers, buttons and a few dew drops complete the decoration. Just need to make a few different ones now for my craft sale.
