CraftyCatz challenge 139....and I 'm not ranting anymore...it's safe to come in....lol



Good morning everyone, hope your all well and looking forward to another week-end, flying by again don't you think....


The theme this week at CraftyCatz, is use Metal, chosen by our fabulous team mateAuntySue, all you have to do is use something metal on your creation so get cracking as we have a fab prize.....




This week  we are very honoured to be sponsored by Bunny Zoe.....and one lucky soul will get  a voucher to spend online..

I made a box, image is SC coloured with promarkers, cardstock is Gemstones, flowers and most all else from stash..Oh and lots of glamour dust on her wings and frills of her underslip...


These boxes are so easy to make, depending on how big you wish the finished box to be....anyway, fold a piece of cardstock,lengthways, in half, this one measures 28cms long by 12cms wide, then fold at  13 and 15, this will make the shape....with me so far...ok..now you need to decide if you want to cut a shape out for the image and slide it in when stuck or place the image ontop...does that make sense at all....next step is to stick all sides firmly...now you need to make a small box for the inside,I used a card size 13cms across by 16 wide, score all round at 2cms, cut corners to fold to make sides of box and cover with DP, if desired, stick it to the bottom of the larger card and thats the bones of your box.....

Hope thats been of some help, if not give me a shout and I'll try and show you as best I can....but it is an easy way of making a simple box, and you don't have to mess about making lids etc;...now that can send you mental...lol...

OK I am off to see if any challenges match my mess....thanks for your lovely visit, see you all soon, hugs Janette.xxxxxxx

I am entering this into the following challenges...

hiya janette, it's a gorgeous box, and what a lovely image, her hair has got a fab sheen on it. Love the metal corner too, especially on the side shot. I never have problems making boxes anymore, I bought one of those box makers and it's soooo much easier. Might still try your instructions though, it's prettier than a regular box with a lid. CoB
