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.

Downton Abbey - Gift Box!

Morning. Did you manage to catch the start of the last series of Downton Abbey last night? And what about the launch of the papercraft range on Create and Craft this morning? It's already flying out the door!!  
I used a papier mache box, and painted it with a mix of white Pebeo Gesso and a little black paint. The Card Companion is from CD2, along with the papers and embellishments. 
I used blue Core'dinations card for some matting and layering, and made the buttons 3D using a ball tool and foam mat.
I part filled the inside of the box with blue tissue paper, and added a body puff, soap, bath salts and a little candle. For each item, I made a co-ordinating wrap with the Core'dinations, and flowers cut using Die'sire Essentials Blossom.

Watch out for more shows on Create and Craft - and lots more inspiration from the team. 

Back soon,
