Haberdashery Box


Thank you to every one who has viewed my last post and I am endeavouring to 
stay on track with posting and I hope you like this next project.
It was made a little while a go but I am pleased with the way turned out.

If have not already worked it out I am a huge fan of graphic 45 
and this project was created using one of their collectors edition rerelease.
The one I chose to use is called Times Nouveau.

This storage box or haberdashery box I made for my wife to hold her 
sewing bits and pieces.





The box itself was constructed using two 5x5 inch graphic 45 mixed media boxes 
joined together, covered with paper from the collection and box feet were adhered to 
the bottom corners.




The boxes open as shown in the pictures and I have added paper covered chip board
dividers to create section for different items inside each box.

To embellish the top of each side I used the various element from the collection including 
chip board, fussy cut images, stickers and assorted metal embellishments.




I hope you like this project and will try using some of my ideas to create 
one of your own.
Happy paper crafting

Time to Flourish Cards

2015 the blog year that wasn't. The past few months ( 4 to be precise ) have seen my creativity
leave completely and my blog posting has been limited at best over this year.  

I apologise for my sporadic posts and I will be hopefully encouraging my followers to check 
out the creations I have not shared as yet.

I am starting with my collection of Graphic 45 Time To Flourish cards.
These cards are in form of step cards, each with a different colour range.

I made the cards from kraft, black white and cream card stock. There are plenty of step card tutorials 
out there on the internet, just google step cards.

I added layered mats to the centre portion of the step card. The mats were
made using dies and simple rectangles.

The papers I chose are both contrasting but still coordinating. As you know graphic 45 are 
masters at making there collections
 easy to use through a well coordinated colour palette. 

When I was looking at what embellishments to use I used my colour choices as 
the guide. It made the choices very easy and I decided to stick with a floral embellishment theme
on all four cards. 

These cards were a fun project and were not to complex to create. There are unlimited 
colour combinations when making these cards and you can also 
cut the steps in different widths.

Thanks for visiting my blog, please leave a comment
if you would like.

Happy Paper Crafting 
Andrew
