I haven't done this for a while but here is what my desk looks like today! It's nice to be back! There are a couple of new things on my desk. A recycled spice rack holding buttons is one of my favourite additions and there is a patterned overpriced Craft bag which holds all my Promarkers. Very handy as it has a handle and is basically a basket so I can carry it downstairs to do my colouring in. There is a beautiful Get Well card on the button rack sent to me by Petra and a couple of finished Projects are dotted around the desk. I think you can enlarge the project if you want a closer look.
I had a play with one of my Sizzix XL dies today, the shaker box die is fab and I have made a couple of DT projects with it that I can't yet share but I put it to use today to make a box to house some teeny cards and envelopes. The cards measure 5.5cmx6cm and I made envelopes for them making a template from a Paperchase envelope.
I used a download from Willow designs to print on to card to make the box and used another to make toppers for the cards and the box.
I added ribbon to the box to keep it closed neatly. The mini cards fit inside the box perfectly.
I used different shaped Nesties to make toppers for the cards and then matted them on to squares of the patterned card.
I added Hero Arts paper flowers as a finishing touch with some gems for a bit of sparkle.
I hope you are having a good Wednesday. I wll be back tomorrow with some DT cards.
