A Box ( or 2) of Butterflies!

Leave a comment

_MG_9829 (Medium)I made these two cards for family birthdays, and I used Graphic 45 Natures Sketchbook 12 x 12 papers. I have done a you tube clip on how to make these super easy box cards, they fold down to fit into a normal sized envelope, I posted one and it arrived safe and sound! The link to my you-tube channel is over there on the right hand side of my blog, ( you may have to scroll down a little bit to get to it). I fussy cut lots of butterflies from one of the 12 x 12 papers. I have spent this morning working on December classes, one more to go and I will¬†¬† have all my classes for the rest of the year sorted! Where has this year gone? I also spent a bit of time die cutting some scrap card to try out some new dies that have been on my craft desk waiting for me to try out! Til tomorrow…..


Decorated folding box cards…

_MG_1983 (Medium) Today here the sun is shining, and the spring bulbs Nathan planted are starting to flower so these two cards were my first choice to post today. There is a link to my you-tube video here on my blog down on the right hand side to show you how simple these cards are to construct and once done decorate the panels…Here I used Kaisercraft Golden Grove papers from the 6″ pad. For the flowers I fussy cut them from a piece of Kaisercraft Golden Grove specialty 12 x 12 paper and attached each flower to a strip of acetate with 450 glue, which is a clear strong quick drying glue. This afternoon I am off to visit Mum and Dad, where Mum and I will enjoy a crafty afternoon while Dad will hide in his own craft room, away from the chatter and laughing…venturing out when he hears the kettle boiling to enjoy afternoon tea with us and exclaim over our wonderful crafty makes! Til tomorrow…..
