Thank you for your emails yesterday - I will be listing the 10 lucky names tomorrow.
In this month's edition of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine I was
asked to do an 'upcycling' feature. The 'mission' was to create projects from boxes.
This is a regular square tissue box that I've altered.
I chose to cut and adhere chipboard to reinforce the panels and covered those with patterned paper.
The lid piece of chipboard was scored to create a flap, I placed a magnet underneath
but you could use VELCRO®!
and Foliage for the lid. A smaller poinsettia for the front panel with a pretty bling heart.
It really didn't take too long to create and it always feels good to re-use something you
would normally throw away.
I have some more upcycling of box projects to share with you soon.
I have some TV news - tomorrow I will be on Create and Craft - I am doing two
shows 3pm and 7pm called 'Paper Pleasures'.
I'm stepping in because Dawn Bibby is unwell so it has been a little last minute.
I've been very lucky that another lady has done a lot of prep for the shows so I'm going to
be demonstrating some of her projects but I do hope to add a few of my own -
possibly a tag or two!
I had better start making some....
Take care friends - hope none of you got blown away with the blustery weather!
