Boxes and bags

Hi Everyone, as we are away for a few days I thought you would like, as promised a looky at what I had been making with my unused files. So I've scheduled posts the last couple of days.

Here they are, random 250g pages from pads I bought in The Range. I reversed the card for the labels and added white paper to write on. I prettied them up a little with die cuts.

They are lovely sizes, I haven't changed them from the original size, they are from large to small for any impromptu gift. I now have some spare expensive choccies to hand to fill some of these boxes. The large box on the right is 8 inches by 4.5inches, the smallest is the square with cut outs in the front which is 2.3/4 inches x 2 inch high AND all resizable on Silhouette Cameo.

I was thrilled with the results and as the pads were only £2.99 for 24 double sided designs they are cheap as chips, as they say, and make a little gift into something special.

I still have more designs in my files, but I think a Christmas pad will be required next LOL.


another I did at a different time

  3. These are so marvelous, Faith, and they make me want an electronic cutter more than ever. Actually, taking that out of the budget is rather silly for me - the lady so hooked on manual dies - because I'd use the cutter pretty much only for boxes like these. But you do tempt a soul with all your beautiful work!
