Ruby 1st Birthday........

When I was asked to do this box I was really unsure, what do you put on a box for a one year old???????????
Well, with my Mums advice as to what the wee girl liked(pink, balloons, building blocks) and lots of helped from my hubby I got it done!!


I used a bright pink 12x12 card stock and paper from K&Co. I used the same bright pink and white pearl card for the layers! I got to use my fave stamps for the sides, thought these were really girlie!! Added some balloon stickers and birthday messages to the sides, also some wee embellishments from stash! To finish the middle I got some Lego bricks and stuck them down to look like someones been playing with them! added loads gems to finish!!

Loved doing this once i got started, just hope its okay for a one year old????????

Baby Girl and Baby Boy

I love doing these boxes!! I just love making my wee shoes and making up the wee prams and baby embellishments!


For the Girl-

I used baby pink 12x12 card stock and PM pink spotty paper to cover the sides. i added some dark pink and white panels for the layers. a stamped image of Candyfloss and embellishments for the sides plus messages printed out with the babies details. the wee shoe is made from the same v=baby pink card stock with a wee added button and ribbon to finish it off! to finish off the box I used chipboard letters and gems.


For the Boy-

I used all the same cards and papers as above except in blue tones! I also used a stamped image of the bear instead of rabbit!

When I gave these over to my friend for her to take to the women who ordered them, she thought they was brill!

Blue Wedding....

Was making some orders for a customer, well a friend, when she phoned and asked if I might be able to make her a wedding box as well as the 3 others I was doing!! Told her I had some wee ones made up and just needed decorating! So here is a quick Wedding Box...........



For this box I used some Navy 12x12 card and PM Big one paper, thought it was a nice change! I used white and light blue card for my layers plus the same light blue card to make my cake! I added messages printed on pearl paper, embellishments I had in my stash, plenty glitter to cake and gems to finish it!!



For a quick box it came out really well, especially the different colour! They couple like it!!!

Big Wedding Box

Well this is it, the last one for tonight x
I was asked to do this one for a friend of the family whos son is getting married this week, she wanted me to make the box larger than normal so they can maybe use it as a center piece for the table! Its been one of the hardest boxes I've had to do,as well as trying to do it while not being very well!



For this box I had to use a sheet of card 24x24 so it would be big enough in ivory. Once it was cut to size I used lilac card and cream card to decorte the sides. I made the wee embellishments for the sides and made the characters outfits all by me wee self. I made a large cake out of card and glitter glue and loads of wee flowers. I finished off the box with the printed messages and loads of gems!




It was so difficult to get it all right because of the size, dont think I would do this size again! Just hope they like it???

Another Birthday for a Gran

Heres the second for tonight x
This one again is for the my best client!! This one is for grandchildren to gave to their gran who likes knitting and sewing. She also wanted me to include a chocolate lab somewhere on the box. Being a dog lover I knew It needed a side all to itself!


On this box I used a pale lilac 112x12 card with a DCWV paper that I got from a big bundle. I used some white, silver and purple handmade paper for the layers and to print the messages. I also used peel-offs, gems and punched out flowers! Love me new flower punch!! I added some wee buttons and also a handmade spoil of thread for a wee touch! I also used flowers in the center again.



Again this was a fun box to do. Love making my own wee embellishments for the sides. Hope its okay for her!
