Anyway, sorry for waffling on as usual! I mentioned in my DT post for Polkadoodles last week that the Design Team have started taking it in turns to do little tutorials on the challenge blog and these are brilliant for giving us a bit of inspiration when the mojo is flagging a bit. A couple of weeks ago my lovely teamie Karon did a great tutorial for a card box - and I just had to have a go! The tutorial on the Polkadoodles site is HERE
I had some 4"x4" cards and envelopes so I altered the gift box measurements slightly to fit them. I've used K&Co papers for the box and cards (and lots of distress ink!) and various die cuts and stamps. I've decorated the box with lace, seam binding ribbon and flowers from WOC. I was quite pleased with how it turned out - especially for a first attempt! So I can see quite a few more of these being made - they make a cute little gift!
Hope you'll have a look at the fab tutorial and give it a go too.
I'm entering this little creation into the following challenges:-
Divas by Design - distressing
ChocolateCoffeeCards - bingo (lace/ribbon/flowers)
Through the craft room door - anything goes
