back again with a quick post. Thanks for your lovely comments!
Christmas is fast approaching and everybody is looking for stocking fillers and gifts. I tend to make some notecards in pretty boxes this time of year. They make great gifts for friends and family. This year I am also venturing into unchartered crafting territory, for me that is, by making some more ambitious projects … well I got them started and shall keep you updated on the progress.
For today it’s notelets and boxes. These are really quick to make and great if you need a good stash of them ready in time for Christmas. Here they are:
… and because it’s so nice in pink …
… I made another set in turquoise! 🙂
These are one-layer cards, the background is stamped in the lighter colour and the swirl in the matching darker colour right on top … no masking or layering!!! To finish I simply stamped the sentiment in black and added sequins in a contrasting colour … that was easy … and quick!!!
I would like to enter these cards in the ‘Stamps and Sequins’ Challenge at Stamplorations.
And now to the boxes I made to fit these notelets:
… the pink and the turquoise one …
… sorry, the turquoise doesn’t stand out from the blue background, but I hope that you don’t mind …
I cut an aperture in the lid and recycled some acetate packaging to back it. To close the box I simply punched a strip of lace ribbon long enough to for a closed loop, which slides over the box, and decorated it with die-cut swirl and flower … oh, and of course, a matching sequin to finish.
Hope you like it!
Back soon …
Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
