Welcome to my blog, i hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Easter boxes.

Hello everybody, what a lovely day! Spring has definitely sprung and thoughts of easter are filling my head.This morning i dug out my free stamp from Quick Cards and made these little boxes for some marzipan sweets i bought from Aldi.
There were ten sweets in the pack so poor me, i had to eat one! Boxmaking is very easy once you've worked out your measurements . To do these i first lay my 3 chocs on a piece of paper and drew around them.Then, as i needed the box to be 2cm high i added 4cm each way and scored 2cm in along each side.
Always remember the lid needs to be slightly larger than the bottom,not much only about 2-3mm each way.I always use scotch quick dry adhesive (white bottle,red label) for my boxes.
This afternoon i'm going to make some little milk carton boxes and i'll photo some instructions for you. See you tomorrow.     Di.xx
