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.

Crafter's Companion Big Score

The lovely Fiona is on Create and Craft today with the Big Score - if you've missed the 8am show - she's back on at 1pm.

This is one of the projects I made for the show using the instructions from the Big Score CD. It's called the 'Magnificent Mailing Box' - and is sooooo easy to make!
I decide to use the Opulence A3 card, cut down to 8 1/4" wide as per the instructions. For the decoration on the top, I did a bit of faux iris folding. I used a square template, and instead of folding paper, I used strips of the card, edged with Faded Jeans DI.
I used Die'sire Essentials Circles and Flowers for All Occasions for decoration, along with some ribbons and pearls!!

Make sure you tune in for the shows today!!
