The new challenge at this weeks Papertake Weekly is 'anything goes' sponsored by Lili of the Valley with the option of making a gift - I made an 'exploding' box which I thought would be mid-way between a card and a gift - I had a great time making it but I hadn't bargained on it being so difficult to photograph!
I used LOTV Classic Christmas papers, red satin ribbon and 12mm white cotton lace plus a LOTV Mini Masterpiece - the box and the lid weren't too bad to make, as long as I made sure I measured everything perfectly :-) and I managed to get the little wobbly bits stuck to strips of acetate and hey presto, it worked - I was amazed!
I went to town on the lid and used Kort & Godt beaded roses, beaded berries and chrysanthemums; Wild Orchid Crafts large rosebuds, hip rosebuds and Ribbon Girl berries - all the flowers are from here
There is some very inspirational work by the PTW design team and I urge you to pop over and have a look - I'm sure you will be inspired to join in!
See you soon, Mary G x
