Gift boxes

Hi All

My project this week comes straight from one of Marions Mega Crafting days. She showed us how to make this fantastic box from just one sheet of paper. They would make great place settings for a Christmas dinner appropriately decorated and filled with chocolate coins or other goodies.

I used the now iconic cupcake stamp with lots and lots of stickles and offcuts of paper and ribbon I had in my stash. To make the box itself all it takes is a scoring blade and a few folds, then some double sided tape to hold it all together. I used the threading water punch to make the scalloped edge on the top.
They're filled with sweeties, intended for the PJ Crop a couple of weeks ago, however, an attack of the numpties meant I remembered to take everything else BUT these boxes. The best laid plans and all that.... I hope your Christmas preparations are going well.
All the best and happy scrapping.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
