Boxed Cards!!!

Here is a little project that I have thoroughly enjoyed doing. I love making boxes. In fact this is how I earned a living when my children were younger. I used to make hand sewn, fabric covered, boxes, needlecases, tissue box covers etc but the paper covered versions are far quicker to make
This box is made using four sheets of A4 card plus one sheet of 12x12 DP. Once I have the photos taken I will do a tutorial on this as it is a lovely box to make.
Paper is K & Co.

The box contains six 5x5 cards made very simply by using two Sizzix circles and a set of stamps by Inkadinkado. I think the set is called Message Rounds.........I forgot to check before I came down. It has three patterned circles with various separate sentiments that all fit into the circles.

It's been a busy day today with a morning and an afternoon class. Thoroughly enjoyed both of them myself and I think the ladies did too. I now have to design four cards ready for Thursday's get a move on but getting my priorities right I am off for a soak and to see if I can finish this James Herbert book. I think I must be getting soft in my old age as at one time I loved horror books. This one is freaking me out but I have to know how it ends and then I think I shall find something a little less scary for my next!!!

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. That box is glorious Sheila. A tutorial on how you made it would be such a treat.

    I love the paper you have used too.

  2. I love the box, Sheila and would love to learn how to make one.
    As regards the book, I lapped up the horror when I was a teenager but can't cope with it any more. Real life's scary enough for me. I need light reading these days.

  3. What a beautiful neat box and the cards are lovely too.

  4. Gorgeous box Sheila, can't wait for your tutorial. Cards are lovely too.

    Did enjoy the class and love the box. Can see lots of possibilities for it if I remember how to make it so when you have time to do a tutorial sheet I'd better have one! Looking forward to tomorrow.

  6. What a gorgeous box Sheila, this will definitely be one tutorial I will keep my eye out for ! The colours are gorgeouse too !
