Boxed Love xx

Evening all

Hope this finds you all well? Has cupid been to see you and fire some love your way??

I've been spoiled! A beautiful new Pandora ring and yummy dairy and nut free sweeties! And after telling hubby not to get me flowers he went one better and got me my favourite ...... DAFFODILS!! Not just one bunch but 10 bunches of daffies! I adore those bright yellow, lemon, white and even orange bright buds and always make me smile! I just wish they were available all year round! Ohh and trying to find enough vases lol what a hubby I have! 

I decided to make hubby a wee something different and made this wee Valentines Giftbox

I choose the so cute Time for Tea Designs Love Letters digi stamp and coloured her up with Spectrum Noirs

I filled the box with sweets and little love notes of course! Yeah I'm soppy! The box is from a Silhouette Cameo file and was perfect for today!

Fancy a Picnic??

Hello everyone
This week has been so busy with orders and then I've had a killer migraine since Wednesday, but at least I can function better! Anyways this week for my Clare Curd Design Team project I created a little Picnic Basket which doubles as a wee wee gift bag

Using old papers, lots of flowers and my fav Butterfly stamps I created my wee basket and made a wee tutorial just for you!

Firstly you want to cut panels as above to these sizes

1 - Handle : 2 x 29 cm
2 - Support : 2 x 18 cm with 4cm folds at either end
3 - Box : 18 x 22 cm again with 4cm folds all around
4 - Lid : 20.5 x 10.8 making folds at each side at 3 then 9 (this leaves a small panel in the middle)
5 - Base : 10.8 x 14.8 cm

Next I cut out my decorative panels with some old paper I found in my stash, I make the panels smaller so as to have a small borders once stuck to the basket

Next I ink the edges on all the papers using my Walnut Distress Ink

Next I made up the box part by taking small notches out of each side then I added the support panel to the inside and stuck down

Start sticking all the decorative panels to the basket parts including the lid and handle

stick the basket to the base leaving an equal border all round

Add glue to the support panel then stick down the lid
Be careful when sticking down the lid making sure its central to the basket

Lastly you want to add the handle. I used some matching brads and put them all the way through

Above you can see I added lots of Mulberry Flowers and leaves with lots of stickles glitter glue before making a little handle for either side. I used a small circle of silver card, a punched out flower and another matching brad

Stamping out my Butterflies with Memento Black Ink and coloured the with turquoise markers and pink markers

Adding them to the box before covering in more glitter

I hope you like my wee basket and maybe find the time to make one of your own
Till next time
Huggles Mel xx
