I have Had this Lady's Blog saved in my favorites for ages now and last night i though i would actually make one of her MAGIC boxes. While it isn't a patch on hers, i am quite happy with how it turned out. Go look though her blog , you will be amazed! I found a tutorial on there too to make the box.
I am half way though my second one and Meg wants me to make some for her friends for Christmas presents.
All quite simple and using up scraps
Painting spare chipboard letters and then using crackle paint over the top.
Using the slice machine.
Scraps of Christmas paper.
snowflake stamp to make a tree.
Things aren't much better here as BOTH our cars are still in the garage. We are supposed to go Christmas shopping ( if we have any cash left!) on Tuesday, so, cross your fingers that we have a car to use or we will be staying home.
Right back to crafting with the odd it of tidying thrown in so i don't feel too guilty :)
