About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Elegance!!!

Am all crafted out for today, so decided to share with you my very last two cupcake boxes. Both of these were made with the absolutely gorgeous Elegance card that sold out before the templates even aired on TV. I just love this card - it lives up to it's name!!
Sara showed this first one on Create and Craft - and I have to say that it is one of my favourites. It's a single cupcake presentation box, and I decided to try something a little different with this one and put it through my Grand Calibur to cut the aperture with an Essentials Scalloped Rectangle. It did work - but is not without its problems. You have to fold the edges in to get it through - and you end up with the imprints of those folded over edges. But you can disguise them - it just depends whether you think it's worth the downside. 
I just love the colours of this card - the pale gold tones with the white. Just beautiful! I decided to add a little bucket filled with florist's oasis and paper flowers - and sit it in a wrapper cut with the Daisy die. The bow and sentiment are from the CD, and I used the Essentials dies to cut the hearts. 

The second box is made with the same card - this time it's a favour box. The rosette and heart motif are from the CD. I decide to use it for the topper as well. This time I used some soft gold pearl card from my stash to cut the wrapper - again with the Daisy die.
So, that's all my Birthday week makes. Am busy with a lot of other stuff at the moment - lots of great things coming up. But in the meantime, thanks for popping by.
