Get Funky! - Just A Number Challenge

Morning everyone, its that time of the month again, I am here to share my DT post for the Get Funky! challenge blog! :)

The theme this month is "Just a Number" and my project uses the Gift Wallet template from the newest release Wishes and Kisses cd.

I printed the template out onto a Funky Hand paper (look out for that in a later post!) and then used that template to draw outline of the gift wallet onto some green card. I rounded the corners and then using the Funky Freebie paper from Anice I have trimmed it down to cover the front and inner flap of my wallet.
I used a small message tag and brad from my stash for the front cover and some of the green base card to make a paper ribbon strip and to mount it on.
To make a space for writing a little message inside the wallet I have used the two larger sizes of the Labels 4 Spellbinders to cut the Freebie and some white card which I edged in green ink.

Quite a simple little share from me this time but I just think this is such a clever template and so versatile for sharing a variety of things like store gift cards, a voucher, money or even a lottery ticket!

Easel Drawer Box Card - Tutorial

** WARNING! Photo heavy post!**

Well after another long break from blogging I am finally back to share my most recent demonstration tutorial for Easel Drawer Box Cards, or whatever you like to call them!
I had seen a few of these around last year and I made one at Christmas to hold 3" notelets but had not made a tutorial sheet for it, so my craft buddy Joanne and I set to work!

We have made 2 sizes of these projects with different suggested uses.
*The smaller one finishes up at 3" square and will stand up to look like a regular card when the drawer is closed. It is perfect for a small piece of jewellery or a few individually wrapped chocolates as a little gift.

This one was simply decorated using the Wellington range from Docrafts...

*The larger one finishes up at 3 1/2" square which as I mentioned before is perfect for 3" notelets like the ones below that I have decorated using the Lucy Cromwell collection from Docrafts...

And here are my versions using the Enchanted Fairies and Bexley Black ranges.

 ...and finally, here are the size guides. They really are very simple to put together but just remember to use a good weight of card to give it some stability.

Thanks for stopping by, hope I haven't bored you with so many photos! Ni. x
