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.

Gilded Box

This afternoon I have a gorgeous gilded box made with one of Crafter's Companion new Die'sire Create a Card. This one is using the Hallelujah die made with Matt Black card. 
After cutting the two sheets of card to size I covered one with Stick It, then scored it with the box lid part of the Scoremaster, After cutting the box top with the die, I peeled off the Stick It backing and covered it with gilding flakes.

I backed the lid with a piece of acetate, and then glued the lid and base of the box. I added ribbon, sparklers and embellishments to the box to finish off.
