MoNa Design - Children's Day

Hello Paper Peeps!

I made a box out of thick cardboard for my niece’s birthday. It measures 3" x 3" and is 2" tall.
I decorated it with papers and die cuts from the Paradise Islands Collection by MoNa Design.
I’m entering this in the Children’s Day Challenge at the MoNa Design Blog.


A bit of lace, cheesecloth, and chip...


The front of the box...


...and the back...


I put a bracelet in it, but it will be her own treasure chest!


Thanks for visiting!

Summer Studio - Stage 3

Hi!

For Stage 3 of the Summer Magic Challenge at the Summer Studio Blog, I’ve made three of my own flowers for this money envelope.

The required elements for this stage are layers and a Summer flower bed.
One of the flowers I’ve die cut from the Sweet Summer Collection.
The background paper is from the same collection.

The base of my flower bed began with layers of fabric, paper, lace, a die cut doily, cheesecloth, a strip of organza roses, and, of course, chip.





I love fussy cutting the butterflies from this beautiful collection.

I hope I made the cut-off for this stage.
