Maddy & Rachel play!



Maddy & I actually had a crafty play in her craft room the other day & made this cute box from the instructions on here We had a lovely afternoon. It makes a change for us to actually do some crafting together for ourselves rather than for Sticky Fixers craft club :-)




Yesterday I used my new sizzix build a flower die that I bought at the Papercraft Fair at Harrogate on Saturday & used it to decorate the top of this cute box.




The faux 'ribbon' was made using Maddy's Martha Stewart punch, slightly offset on one side. I really want/need some of these gorgeous edging punches :-)

Edited to say that I forgot to say that one of the measurements on the box plan I had to revise - the 9 3/4 should be 9 1/2

Rachel said...

Thanks ladies - loved making it :-)

Have edited the post to say that one of the measurement needed revising.

The top & bottom are a Sizzix die Kath & we used mountboard rather than the card suggested. The box is nice & stable :-)
