At Amber's Crafts & Stuff this week we are looking for a Recycled item on your projects. This is the Postal Package I used to make a notelet case for a friend.
I cut two pieces of card, the full size of the box, and sandwiched the left hand flap between them. After covering the inside, I glued the right hand flap down to create a 'pocket'.
The purple material covering the top is also recycled...it was lining a box that a crystal vase came in, and the flowers are from various flower arrangements. Her favourite colours are purple, blue and orange, so I was pleased I managed to fit all three into this.
I've edged it with pale lilac satin ribbon, adding small blue gems to the corners. A wide piece of lace across the center and of course the huge spray of flowers.
A couple of shots of the inside
I printed out half a dozen images onto a5 cardstock and folded them to make the notelets. Three female, three that could be used for males. They are all detailed images that work really well just in black and white. I've printed two of each and they are as follows ...
Court Shoe - Jak Heath Designs, Katie's Love Swing - Make it crafty (both from Help for Katie)
Insight - Card Mad Fairy
Autumn Oak - Arthurs Clip Art
A Cottage Scene & The Mill - Digital Two For Tuesday.
This was a really fun challenge...and who doesn't like creating something from next to nothing. The rest of the team have some great projects to show you, pop over and see them for some inspiration and join us in the challenge this week.
