Good morning to you all. Hope all is well with you and yours and if not, hope things perk up soon.
Thank you very much for the encouraging comments on my challenge entry. In answer to questions, I do only have one Bitty Blossom set but because the Lidl paper is only 135gsm (they were selling it alongside the card last year) , I can cut 3 at a time. It still takes a while to twiddle (a technical term) and glue them but not too long to cut them.
The winner will be announced by the end of June, so here's hoping for a prize of a box of
Now, I apologise for the naff photos of this offering as it was a rush job to house a bottle of vino di collapso for my supervisor at work, for her birthday. I thought I had a bottle gift bag (I usually recycle if anybody gives me one) but,alas, no, so I had to put this together in a jiffy.
A3 sheet of PMD purple card + extra for the lid and base
Couple of bits of white card, mounted behind the punched and cut areas
White organza ribbon
SB Decorative Labels 28 (for the gift tag)
The ribbon is to enable it to be carried as the card is only around 270gsm. It is taped to the bottom (ooooh err Mrs!!!) runs up the sides, front and back, under the lid and through the top of the lid in each corner, then tied in a knot (hope that makes sense)
The lid then slides up the ribbon to reveal the contents. . . . . . .
and slides back down again to close and is now strong enough to carry. I know its not terrifically exciting and not a John-esque creation but its a handy little number in a pinch. Jo (yes another one, I think its compulsory to have a Jo on our section) was thrilled with it (probably more so about the contents rather than the box lol!!!)
Anyhoo, time to waddle offski. At the charity shop today and doing extra hours again at work this week so not much time for much else at the moment, especially housework. I've decided to test the theory that dust doesn't actually get any worse after 5 years. Will let you know if its true in 5 years and a day hahaha!!!
Be good all and
