Peony and Box...

Happy Monday,

There isn't a way I could revisit any golden oldies without featuring this box and matching card which has been the most popular project, and tutorial on my blog since the beginning!

There is a video tutorial on this available on the original post HERE


I have added a few more shots ion this card and box as it really is one of my favourites and still has ( after being gifted back to me by Wendy) pride of place in my craft room!


















Enjoy...

  2. Good morning John,
    I absolutely loved this when you first showed it.
    I did try it and was delighted with the results. I am off to look back, it could be a project if I find time later today.
    Wishing you all the luck in the world.
    Have a great day

  4. Morning John, a really big WOW on this one, I don't remember ever seeing this, it must have been before I found out about your blog, I will definitely be visiting the original tutorial.

    Hope all is going well with you and that you have recovered a bit from your hectic 2 days at Detling, as I said you were always surrounded and you must have been very horse at the end of it with all the questions you were answering, but saw some great tips - don't forget about the washy tape for your magnets ha ha!!

    I sent the stuff to Brenda this morning by the way

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

    This is one of my favourite posts of yours! I just love your colour scheme for this project. I have the die and have used it to make a gold and cream version when you first showed it to us. It is lovely to see some of these earlier ideas etc again.
