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

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!
