Crafty Carol!!

I’ve actually managed to get down to some crafting recently…..sadly none of it was for my poor little Etsy Shop (Snow Bunnys Knits)!! I had to decorate a Matchbox for a Swap on Swap-Bot! I actually ended up having to make the matchbox as all the ones I could find round here were too big to fit the criteria!! This was my first attempt….I hope it looks ok!!

I basically painted the matchbox in a pretty pink colour, then I cut out motifs from card making papers I had in my stash!! I really love the little tea-pot 😀

On the side of the draw I stuck little heart stickers which i got from Paperchase! The finishing touch was some dots of glitter….you’ve got to love glitter 😀 I then filled it with little bits and bobs!! I really hope they like it!!

Next on my list was a card for my Mums friends birthday!! I only had like a day to do it so it’s not one of my best but it’s still pretty cute I think!!


Birthday card!

I got the papers free with papercraft essentials magazine!! I had the little flowers in my stash!! I really hope she likes it!! Ah well I am now off to actually do some Etsy stuff!! I’m going to settle down in front of my NCIS DVD’s and knuckle down!!
