Pamper Box

I have managed to catch up with some DT work this weekend which you will be seeing very soon!! I also managed to make a few other bits and pieces! Today i have a lovely Pamper Box to share with you! I will be posting a tutorial on this very soon too so check back for that!

This was very simple to make and i think it makes a lovely gift! I have filled mine with mini bath bombs but i am planning to do a few more of these, you could put a flannel & soaps or anything really!!
I used a load of SU Cardstock as it is pretty sturdy compared to anything else i have! I then decorated it with some lovely Basic Grey Papers that i picked up at Ally Pally half price!! They are soooo pretty too!! I used a fabby Pure Innocence stamp by My Favorite Things, so cute and ideal for my pamper box!

I also used my new Cuttlebug Quilling Dies to make my flower... love love love this soooo much and it only takes maybe 2-3 mins to do but only really ideal for boxes, bags etc as they are very bulky and 3D!
Supplies - MFT Pure Innocence Stamp, Basic Grey Papers, SU Cardstock, Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Punch, Cuttlebug Quilling Dies, Jewels, Copics, Glamour Dust & Marianne Swirl.

Hot Chocolate Gift Set

I am here, lol! I have had a very busy few weeks so sorry for not updating my blog much! I have been making a few things here and there but unfortunately by the time i get it is pitch black dark so i can't seem to get any decent photos so these will have to do for now!

I have been busy busy preparing for two craft shows i am doing and also making lots of Christmas presents! Here is a little Hot Chocolate Set i put together!
It is a mug containing 2 sachets of Hot Chocolate, a pack of marsh mellows, a candy cane & a chocolate square, pretty cute i think!
I used some lovely Basic Grey papers i have had sat around for ages so i thought i would put them to good use and make a coordinating set! I used my SU Punches for the scallop & circles and my old faithful snap stamps!
I wrapped it up in some clear cellophane and added some ribbon and ta-da, all finished!

Supplies - Basic Grey Papers, Stampin Up Punches, Snap Stamps & Ribbon
