i have been boxing again??

Well not the fighting kind, I have been playing again with kraft cardstock and the flight of the butterfly stampset but this could of ended up being a fight the inside of the box stuck somehow??? and now I can only take the top off but it doesn't open out { i blame sticky strip for being so sticky} so it just looks pretty and well doesn't do much oh well I finished it off with some white satin ribbon and some kraft gingham ribbon. I am off to make a new bottom piece again and this time the sticky strip better watch out!!! LOL happy crafting!!!

one sheet wonder!!!!



I have been trying to come up with a new way of packaging cards and this is what i have come up with. it's made from one sheet of stampin up's barley banana cardstock and i used the garden green house stampset to stamp a flower, in the centre is a flat back pearl from the pretties kit, i added the strip of whisper white at the end as my flower had not alot of room to fit on so i used the scalloped edged punch to make it pretty. the strip of barley banana is the piece i cut off to make the box so it was still only one sheet of cardstock,

This makes a great gift if you only have one sheet of cardstock left it fits up to 8 cards and envelopes. happy crafting
