Boxed!

Just a quick post today.
A little wooden box I made...well not the box itself,
just decorated it!!

My fave crackle effect on the top.
Added a few flowers from Hobbycraft and of course,
a Marianne designs butterfly die.


The wooden heart was from my stash, as is the paper.

The beautiful lace is from Crafty Ribbons.
The quality of this lace is far better than most I have seen.
You really have to see and handle it.


The paper I used for the inside is a Kirsty Allsop paper pad.


There a lot of new ribbons over at the Crafty Ribbons store
and all at very good prices.
As a ribbon addict myself, I think I know my ribbons.
They certainly come into the 'Stroke, Look At' and 
put back in the box category!!
It really hurt me to cut into this lace! Lol!!

Can't believe it but my die cutting machine has broken. 
A Couture Creations A4 folder got stuck in the machine. 
For some reason they have the join on the sides, 
which makes them wider than the plates.
If you don't get them in perfectly, they get stuck which mine did.
Just had to order a new machine!!
Not a happy bunny!!

Thanks for popping in and leaving me your lovely messages.
Will visit you back too.
Hugs,

Carol xxxx

Gorgeous box Carol. I really love the crackle affect and that beautiful lace. I can see why you didn't want to cut into it. Sorry you've had to buy a new machine. Sure wish they would make them to last...I've had to replace 2 of mine. hugs, Pat K x
