Pandoras box


Good morning everyone......scheduled ahead so it should be when this pops up........ it's time for this weeks challenge at Allsorts where Helene would like us to make a gift box.

I really enjoyed making the box which I created using a scoring tool and ruler, covered with some DP from stash, ribbon, lace and decorated the top with flowers.

By coincidence, my Pandora bracelet fits inside a treat although that was not the original plan. Not many charms on it as yet, but only had it at Christmas so time to fill it a bit more and there certainly are some pretty ones I have my eye on.


My second share is my last but one DT peice for Stamptacular Sunday where the them is "Are you Talking to Me". I embossed a panel with a Cuttlebug folder after stamping with Penny Black 2695J and then lightly inked with distress inks to emphasise the embossing. The poppy is Hero Arts coloured with Copics.

Wonderful creations Brenda. The little box is so pretty and how perfect for your bracelet. Love the sentiment on the second card, perfect. Struggling a bit at the minute with my gallstones and the added annoyance of a sore back:( I never get a sore back so don't know whats wrong. Need rubbed out and drew all over again lol. Hope you are feeling ok yourself:)
