This year seems to be flying by! It’s easter this weekend and already we are onto sketch #9 over at Our creative Corner Sketch Challenge
I loved the sketch this week! as it gave soooo many possibilities! But then THAT proved to be a problem as i just didn’t know what to make…lol I’m kind of ‘bored’ with making cards right now.There are soooo many things that you create with a bit of card and paper, so why just mainly cards! I tend to do cards just because they are quicker. I hope that i can now start to create ‘Other’ things.
This is what i created using this weeks sketch!
I made a lovely little gift box for a baby girl,just using plain CS and a few basic grey rubons,punches ,nesties , distress ink,pokey tool, flowers and pearls.
All of the paper pricking doing one hole at a time took…FOREVER , seriously it was like never ending…lol ,but i really wanted to have them on every part of it. And the pearl….why oh why didn’t i just use self adhesive ones…lol as these took quite a while to stick on there.
I also used an SU tab punch to add ‘decorative’ tabs to each side. I also added a basic grey rubon to each side too!
I then ran a little ‘glassine’ bag through the cuttlebug to emboss it with swiss dots. Added punched shapes,ribbon and pearls for the closure. Thought this would be a lovely holder for placing a gold bangle /money ect into….then placing the bag into the box. *Shame i know nobody to give this too…LOL*
A close up of the little bag!
I then made a little 5” announcement card…very quick and simple (apart from that pricking…lol*
I even decorated the envelope a little with a couple more rubons…and yes…more pricking…lol
Please POP OVER and have a looksie at the fabulous creations that the other DT girlies have made to give you some inspiration :) *While you are there you could even join in with us*
