Project no 3

Now this one took hours LOL! 3 cardboard photo cubes inked then covered with paper which has been torn, pricked then sewn I must have been completely mad!
I used to do lots of tearing and stitching on my papers mainly because I had nothing better to do LOL but actually its a look I still really like.
This embossed bauble it a stamp from Graphicus.

and these are Hero arts - see post from Monday as they are on sale.......

and this is another Graphicus one this time a leaping reinedeer. This is a gift for a relative for adding photographs of Christmas' to. The thing about home made presents is they dont actually cost a lot to do but if you added up my time on this one and I got paid what I usually do at work its worth £40! - More thought, time and effort than it takes for a few clicks on the computer to buy a gift thats for sure - wonder if it will be appreciated for that????

Thanks for stopping by today x Janet

  3. Beautiful... Should be appreciated honey, but things arnt as they should be with some peeps, eh?

  4. I agree with the others, it was time well spent, they are brilliant.

  5. OMG what a lot of work in those little boxes, well worth the extra effort though - they are gorgeous Janet xxx

  6. Your photo boxes are fab, the recipient should appreciate the gift, but sometimes it takes a crafter to appreciate not only the work but the love in making it. hugs Caz

  7. I loved these when i first saw them and love them still, luv Georginaxxx
