About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Box, Shelf Card ?????

Good Morning All
Here is my project I mentioned yesterday.

I am so pleased with how this turned out.

The back featuring a charm as shown yesterday.

The top decorated with flowers, leaves  and stick pins.

Guess what's inside.

I was browsing Pinterest and have seen this design many times, so finally decided to have a go.
Obviosuly the shelves wont hold anything too heavy, I will  have to have a think about this.
One problem I came across was how to keep it fastened besides having a lid on.
I decided to use mini magnets  and ribbon and then hot glued a ribbon and pearl buckle to hide it.

So pleased with this, it fitted together perfectly and will look great on my stall at the craft fayre.
If any of you have made this style, please leave me a link and I will pop over.
There are tutorials on  You Tube  that show how to make it  but I thought this was a good one.
I just used 8 x8" paper to make the shelf boxes and winged it from there.!!!!!

 I am looking for a couple more DT members for MAWTT Challenge.

morning wendy, a beautiful box, love the decoration. i made one like this years ago, and had the same problem with keeping it closed. i used a brad and a loop of ribbon to keep together, but the magnet sounds like a much neater idea. janice xx http://createdbyjan.blogspot.com
