Just a Note

Our last challenge of the year over at Sugar Creek Hollow is to 'Make a gift',  could be a  bag/box/enclosure etc ', but not a card
Remember we like to see a Shabby chic/vintage style for your projects.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.
Also welcome our Guest Designer  Jytte.

Sorry I can only show you what the top of the box looks like. It was away in the post when I remembered  I didn't have a photo  from the side as well. I can show you some of the notelets I made to go inside.

For the box and three of the notes,  I  used a selection of Hunkydory papers and toppers.  They were so quick to make with the addition of the trimmings from my stash.

The notes on the left have toppers made from material scraps and an old buttons.

I have made a few of these note boxes as gifts this year and have made many cards like these last ones to fill them.
All the extra shading is  my favourite colour distress inks, Vintage Photo and Tea Dye.

I must apologise for not getting to visit you all recently,  I often wonder how time always seems to gather speed at this time of the year.

I do thank you for stopping by and realy appreciate your comments.
