It's a Box...

Happy Monday,

I hope you all enjoyed the brief sojourn into Christmas 2017 over the weekend.  Today I'm sharing a box that is the workshop for next Sunday at Craft Locker in Poole.  I am there all weekend with 4 technique workshops on the Saturday and this box as a longer workshop making this box on Sunday Morning.

This is made using the Prism striplet from Creative Expressions and the orange blossom flowers and leaves along with matching stamps!

I love making Hexagon boxes and find them really fun as they only use one sheet of A4 card.

I will share the template next week however there is an earlier version on my Facebook which you can download.

  7. It's a lovely box. I bought this striplet so no excuse for not having a go.

  8. Hi John
    A lovely box, the striplet is perfect for the sides so I presume it would work with other similarly sized striplets.

    hi John,
    Beautiful box. I've still got the instructions for one of the first ones you demo'd on Hochanda. I made it, albeit struggled a bit. But it'll definitely not be the last one I'll make as they make such a beautiful gift box or lamp.
    Hugs, Rose

  27. Morning John,
    Beautiful box.

  28. Good morning John
