Cottage Garden Pop Up Box

Hi everyone...

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Simon Says Stamp post on Monday and also the comments I've received about my samples that I created for the Craftwork Cards shows on Ideal World and Create and always means so much to read them and they always make me smile wide!

For those Craftwork Cards fans out there, (and I know there are a lot) I'm sure you all enjoyed the shows and I KNOW some of you were tempted to put some of those gorgeous new collections into your baskets...weren't they gorgeous and didn't Julie do an amazing job on Tuesday night and throughout the day yesterday?

Now if you do have any of the collections winging their way to you and if you need a little bit of inspiration, then I thought it would be nice to share some of the samples I made for the shows so that you can see them all in close up and see all the details. So today, I'm starting with my Cottage Garden pop up box and as always, I hope you like what I've made...
This is the larger of the two boxes that you get in the pack and is such a lovely size to work with and when it all folds flat, it fits into an envelope.
 The flowers are all die cut from the Cottage Garden paper pad, using a Sizzix die and the foliage is die cut from the Tim Holtz Garden Greenery die and then painted with Distress Paints.
The flowers and leaves are all attached to the little tabs that you add inside the box and each flower has a Candi centre.

So, that's it from me for today and I hope you have as much fun with your paper collections and goodies when they arrive as I did. Have a wonderful day!!
See you soon and bye for Emma xxx
