Crafty Rainbow Swap

5 Aug

A few Weeks, well a Month ago (It didn’t quiet make my Very understanding swap partner on time), I took part in a #crafttherainbowswap set up by Louise @louffy1983 on Instagram.

The swap was 1 item each colour of the rainbow with at least 4 handmade items.

I enjoyed thinking of ideas for the swap but silly me didn’t consider the time constraints the wedding would bring so I got behind and had to alter a few things.

With my swaps I try to look at what crafts the person I’m swapping with does and then do something different for them. As I think it’s nice to receive crafts you may not do yourself.

This is what I came up with for my rainbow swap parcel.

RED

I needle felted a RED heart hanging.

ORANGE

I went more for the smell with ORANGE and made bathbombs & scrub, infused with Sweet Orange aromatherapy oil. I added some Marigold petals to add some extra orange in colour form.

YELLOW

A little to late to plant this year but YELLOW sunflowers I think are such happy flowers.
These are the Giant Variety ! I hope that my swap partner and her son will have fun growing these next year.

GREEN

I saw a little GREEN note book & letter C for my swap partners name so teamed the two up to personalise a note book for her.
… And who could resist the little green froggy rubber.

BLUE

I’m going to admit this was my last make and I had issues the ceramic paint didn’t overly like the air dry clay – so I’m hoping this was ok in the end. But I made a small trinket bowl from air dry clay and painted it with BLUE ceramic paint and tipped it with silver.

INDIGO

Pompoms !! I made INDIGO woollen pompom flowers, and used florist tape to cover the stick steams, then placed them in a purple/indigo shot glass I brought.

VIOLET

I brought a VIOLET coloured Amethyst bracelet for my swap partner. I do like healing stones and I hope this helps her.

At The End Of Every Rainbow

… Is a pot of gold … chocolate gold in this case.

PINK

Now PINK isn’t a colour of the rainbow but I thought as a little extra I would included Pink. These skittles are dessert flavour ?.

RAINBOW

I couldn’t resist this rainbow lolly pop it reminded me of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.

And what better than a rainbow coloured macaroon postcard to pop a little note for my swap partner in.

Finally some rainbow star stickers.
