Yep... that's right! I am becoming very brave now and stepping out of my comfort zone. I am getting a bit bored just making the same old cards all the time, whilst some of you are really top notch papercrafters out there... so, I decided to "step out the box" and spent the better part of Saturday evening making a box and here it is.... ta-raaaa
I made this from scratch. For the base I used a sturdy piece of kraft cardstock and just white for the lid. I then set about decorating the lid, as if I were making a card. This week I received some cut-outs from a SA stamping friend, Debbie, and I have made a flower from 2 of them. I hope she's impressed...lol I thought it would work well with the flower this little clown is holding. This is yet another image I won in the Elisabeth Bell Definitive Blog Candy and as you can see, I am having such fun stamping all these new images. Once again I have used the freebie paper from MME which came with the August issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine which I purchased recently. Such a good buy these mags, as you always get something free with them.
Another few pics from different angles of my very first box... woohoooo ... lol
I decorated the edge of the lid with black and white spotted ribbon and then punched some yellow flowers to place along the ribbon. In the centre I added a flat-backed pearl.
I am entering this creation in the Crafty Emma's Store Challenge. It's Anything Goes !
Thanks so much for popping by. I'd love to hear what you think of my little box. And finally, but certainly not least, a very warm welcome to my new Creative Friends. I will pop around and visit you soon. Take care, hugs Sharon x
