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.

Day 29 - A Country Life Pop Up Box.

Afternoon!! An earlier post today. I only worked this morning, and am struggling to motivate myself to do anything this afternoon. So, I'm sitting with my laptop on my lap - watching Fiona on Create & Craft - and doing things like clearing out my emails, sorting Pinterest and now blogging.

Today, I have another offering from the Morgan Fitzsimons "A Country Life" CD. I chose this one today, as Fiona shared it yesterday as part of her FB post. It is one of the Pop Up Boxes from the CD - all the pieces you need are provided. I added an extra sentiment from the Sentiments section, and the 3D Bows from the Embellishment section.
One I had printed the Pop Up Box out onto Centura Pearl, I popped it back into the printer and printed the back with the co-ordinating papers - just so there was no white showing. I also inked the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. And that lovely lacy border was just asking to be decorated with flat backed pearls.
Back tomorrow,
