Surprise box

Stampin Up Suprise Box

Hi everyone! Hope the sun is shining for you today, it is here but not sure for how long!
This morning, before the troops woke up, argued and wrecked the house I had some time to play. I came across this box and it was so cute I had to give it a go.
It is really very simple using the simply scored board by stampin up and only uses one sheet of cardstock. No fiddly bits, just a few score lines, a few snips  here and there, some sticky strip and your done. All you're left with is to decorate it with your favourite designer series papers and a punch or two.

Hope you like it.
Happy making

Upcycling Beautiful Butterflies

Yesterday I stumbled across upcycling old t shirts on the internet. Some of the ideas were so fantastic I just had to give it a go.
Armed with two old shirts, my machine and some elastic I set to work cutting and sewing.
My daughter asked for something with butterflies, I had no idea what I was doing let alone putting any decoration on it! Then I remembered my beautiful butterflies die, perfect as it cuts material wonderfully.
After making a top and skirt I machined on the butterflies and antenna.
Sorry but I am very proud seeing I haven't made any sort of clothing, only nick nacks. Hope you like it to, my daughter does and that suits me down to the ground.
Why don't you dust off your machine and give something a new lease of life with some stampin up dies! Happy sewing XXX.
