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

Simple gift box.

I've been to The Papermill shop at Cheshire Oaks this morning. I read on the Docrafts forum that they were closing down so Speedy was roped into taking me there to stock up. There weren't many colours left in the card but at least i've got plenty of white now.
When i got back the sunshine had gone and it was dull as dull could be. I took 61 photos of this box and still couldn't get a decent one so had to settle for this one. It's made with ribbon and a gift tag from Wilkinsons. If you fancy making one i'd advise looking for better tags elsewhere as the glitter is very loose and got everywhere, you get what you pay for i suppose.
Here are the offending tags, the fact that the bag is full of glitter should have put me off,lol. The ribbon is fine though.
I punched a bigger hole and added another one opposite and threaded the ribbon through. I put a couple of 3d foam pads under the tag to keep it in place.I added a few peel off corners in gold to match the tag. I don't yet know what will go in it but the colour suggests something Cadbury's, perhaps a snowman soup kit.The box measures five and a half inches square and is one inch deep.I made the bottom with gold mirror card.    Thanks for visiting.  Di.xx
