Octagon Box

Clearly I have some sort of storage box fever at the moment. After I got this pigeon holes unit, there is no more (awful) mess in my craft room.
This one is Very Important. Ok, I need needles and pins (immediately a song plays here in my head "Needles and Pins"!) and if there is loose box, all are always on the floor or nowhere to be found. Only after OUCH!
Made a box for pins and needles. Needles and Pins! It's just a simple octagon with double bottom and double lid/top. After glued together got a piece of styrox cut the shape, covered with thin fabric.

2 x A4
Octagon shape - Spellbinders
Stamp - Magnolia (well I was going to write "Needles and Pins" because image was just so good for the need.
Ribbon - stash
Ticket shapes - Sizzix Framelits + paper stack cover sheet :)

Challenges I made this for
Dream Valley Challenges -  Anything but Square
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia - Anything Goes (I trust cute Magnolia stamp counts)

Till next time :)


Couldn't get sleep so I thought well, lets make something!

This is a "New Home" box. 
All you need for the basic box:
2 x A4 cardstock (depending the size of the box, ofcourse
ribbon (it gives a bit of flexibility, if the lid is not "perfect size")

Image is the same on every side, freebie from A Day for Daisies. 
4 sides, 4 different shades of green and dress colour.
Blossoms on the tree are, or suppose to be, same colour as girl's dress.
Lots of yellow like bright sunshine.

Image - A Day for Daisies
Colorine - Promarkers and Distress ink
Corner cutting - Fiskars scissors
Ribbon - stash
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley

Challenges I made this for:

Noodles is my craft companion, as you can see! 
After re-organizing my box room (I proudly use the term "craft workshop" or "craft room"), there's our printer and the "Photo Studio" I made when found instructions from Dorcas' blog. 

Anyway, Noodles loves it and I love him. 
From now on, there will be cat fur in every photo I take. :D

Again beautiful image from Mo Manning, called Cherry. Colorine took me ages and I'm not happy at all with it, but didn't want to throw away either.I tried blending it and recolouring. Also using pencil eraser eased the job a bit.

3-rose embellishment - 3 x satin rose, few inches of green satin ribbon, piece of pearl chain. All glued together using hot glue gun.
I typed couple of paragraphs of Alice in Wonderland, re-coloured, printed, and now there is perfect backing paper.

Wee Craft Corner of Mine

If you have your own crafting place and something is there and here and everywhere, do what I did. Near son's college/university is a nice small (dusty, crowded) house clearance place and this was my first visit there.  Lonely pigeonhole unit was there and after good wondering around, talking about cars and weather, I asked like it really didn't matter or like I wasn't actually interested at all, "how much do you think I should pay for this?"

Answer was "gimme a fiver and it's yours". Well, FIVE pound sterling it was and son did the rest. Dragging it into the car, dragging it into the house and upstairs. Thank you, sweetie. 

This picture is downstairs with warts and all. 

Testing how A4 and 12x12 will fit there. Ok, fine, good enough for me.

After hoovering, polising and arranging. Not there yet, but wow, how great it was to organize my very organized mess, even having this wee moment to see, that it was a proper bargain and oh so great.

Picked few cardboard boxes from Asda (with permission of course). 
I sort of save all pieces of papers and cardstock, but never get a chance to use them, 
because "it's never there!". 

Labels are there and now these boxes are for all those scraps. Good, innit?
My favourite take away boxes, too, filled with brads and eyelets.

I think it was a fiver well spent.

Till next time, thanks for visiting :)
