I would like to share with you a project I have been working on for a while. My friend’s daughter has just had a baby girl and I wanted to make her a gift. I decided on a kind of explosion box – I think that is what you call them. I need to apologise for the photographs, I really do not think they do the box justice. I have used Lilac papers and the poor light and background really is not showing it off.
The tiny accordion book opens up on top of the box to revel the baby’s name. All the letters are individually stamped. I didn’t want to open it up to show you, just because the bow took me so long to get right!!
A peek at the inside.
I made the little tiles that are on the die cut labels using stamps and some glossy accents on the top.
I made the baby shoe from matching papers, I found the baby shoe template on the internet. It was printed off on to some card to make it a sturdy template that I could keep.It was easy to use and when the papers were cut out and glued together it turned out really cute and tiny.
Lots of pearls, flowers, shabby loveliness and of course one or two butterflies. It is the first time I have used acetate like this and love it :-) x
I would like to enter my project into two challenge blogs.
Over on Frilly and Funkie they have a ‘Hip to be square’ challenge asking participants projects to be cube shaped and have a shabby chic or vintage feel. How could I resist that? I follow the blog via email and have only just recently found them. They have some gorgeous work shown on the blog, go take a peep.
Over on the City Crafter their current challenge is Roses, perfect. I would have to have my hands tied together to stop me adding flowers and roses to 99% of my projects te he. I have not entered a challenge on City Crafter for 2 years, so I thought I was due a challenge entry. I love all the challenge blogs, you see some amazing work and projects and get some great inspiration.
Thank you so much for coming over to take a look at my work.
