Window Box Thinlits and Delightful Daisy

The Delightful Daisy designer series paper (order number 144137) just screams summer to me. I am obsessed with flowers, Spring and Summer are my two favourite seasons! With all the lovely weather we are having at the moment I haven’t been crafting as much, being outside is just too much of a distraction! I love to be able to give people a little gift box or bag along with a card, I normally put a few sweets or scented candles into them. So this is where Delightful Daisy meets the Window Box thinlits ( order number 142762). This thinlit set is a must have, there are countless ways to use the set and make every project unique. Along with Delightful Daisy DSP, the Window Box thinlits I also used the Delightful Daisy cardstock pack (order number 144139). I hope this project gives you some inspiration, I have loads more projects coming up using these products!

Mother’s Day Flowers

Recently I went to Ikea, I love the place! When I go it is a full day event and normal leaves my pockets empty! It is a brilliant shop for lots of craft items some of my favourites include box frames, ribbon and little glass jars (brilliant for decorating and filling with sweets!). On this visit I seen these little tin vases, they are everywhere on Pinterest. I picked up two of the smallest sizes (£2 each). I had no idea what I was going to make with them but I knew I needed them. After a few days I finally decided to make flowers for them. I made button flowers, the same as from our craft night. I added larger paper flowers and shredded green paper to make grass. To add the finishing touch I added ribbon, I posted them to my Facebook page and they sold almost instantly!

Craft club

Last Friday was our monthly craft club meet up, the theme for this month was flowers. Our group consists of 6 members, including myself. We collect ideas during the month and then decide on one thing to make. Having other crafters around is great for inspiration, we are all at different levels and we all have different skills we teach each other. This is what we made on Friday night.

Tea light gift box 

The inspiration for my last post came from a very talented crafter called Pootles. She make amazing little packages from card I highly recommend you check out her blog. I hope that someday my work can be as inspiring as hers. This little box is so quick and easy to make, I used it to hold 4 little tea lights but it could be used for so much more. I hope the measurements and the image showing where to cut is clear. I’m not used with doing post showing how to construct, but I can only get better! And hopefully someday I will gather together the confidence to make a video!

This is how your card stock should look before folding.
