An extraordinary concoction.

Good evening, I am so sorry for being awol just lately but I have managed to pull together a pretty nice project to show you! It's been one of those months (years more like!) where every day just goes so quickly and very little that isn't absolutely neccesary gets a look in! But here we go! I've had a play with a couple of wooden embellishment trays and hinged them together with paper - all papers featured here are from our 'The Elegance Collection' CD.

These first three photos are of the outside - the two sides & the hinge. Keys/Locks/Snowball border/Flower are from our new CD for the craftROBO/Silhouette: Cuttables Vol. 3! Pearls were grabbed from our box of bits along with the beautiful gold button that I pulled off some of my old clothes! The distressed spots are made from a mask on Cuttables Vol. 3 - used walnut stain through it to add a little something to the corners!

Right, ow for the inside! The bunting was just made by cutting triangles of 'The Elegance Collection' backing papers and gluing the corner to corner with a slight slope. The die-cut tree is from Cuttables Vol. 3, as is the mesh in the bottom left compartment, the jigsaw piece in the bottom right and the spotted mesh in the top left. I found a couple of old fuses in a sewing box that used to belong to my Grandma, along with a large googly eye (I turned it around and used the back in the middle right compatment) and some absolutely beautiful buttons!


Hinges, Flowers and Butterflies were from Cuttables Vol. 2 along with more vintage buttons from my Grandma's box. The little bird charm was one I got from Meiflower when we were stood beside them at a show! The little birdhouse was taken from Cuttables Vol. 3 too. Finally, the hat pins were from a supplier at the craft fairs and tea-rose flowers are available on our website (

Here's a full shot of the inside:

Hope you love it as much as I do!

Now to pack it up for Leicester tomorrow, unless it finds a home somewhere around the house!

Take care & I'll see you soon!
