Fathers Week/ Tuxedo Tissue Box


Tuxedo tissue box

Hi everyone :-) 
Welcome to my Fathers week and day 1 of my series. I am kicking it off with this gorgeous and very classy Tuxedo Tissue box. This is not just a Tissue cover but an actual box with a lift off lid. It looks so cool and i think any man would be proud to have this on display. 
If you follow me you may remember that i did a tissue box cover about 3 years ago. Its still on my youtube channel and you can check it out HERE

Tuxedo tissue box


This box is very simple to make and i also reinforced the lid. My lid turned out a tiny bit to big so i will give you a smaller measurement to ensure it doesn't happen to yours. I achieved the white stitching effect with a gel pen and the bow tie was made from a bow Die that i have in my stash.

Beautiful 3D Flower Card & Drop Down Gift Box


3d flower card tutorial

Hi Everyone :-) so i said on Facebook the other day that i would be doing another Flower video today. I thought i might as well make this a 'Flower' week! I think i may do another Flower video for Sunday too. 
I am sure you have seen these cards in Florists or Florist online etc. They are beautiful but again they can be pricey. Not only that but as they are fresh Flowers, they don't last very long. However this one will last such a long time as they are all artificial :-)

DIY Mini 'Aqua' Bouquet!


Mini diy aqua bouquet

Hi everyone :-) 
Thank you for popping over to my Blog. If you follow me on Facebook you will know that yesterday i said i have the most adorable project coming up! Well here it is!! How cute is this??? This is my mini version of an aqua Bouquet. When you get a 'real' one, the box holds the Flowers which are wrapped in cellophane and have water inside. I am sure you have seen them or even had one yourself. This is just the cutest thing ever!!

Paper flower aqua bouquet

Its very simple to make and made in the same kind of way as my Flower Bag tutorial that i did the other day. The 'Aqua' box is just 2 pieces of card stock glued together so you don't even need a die for it. I also made a tiny envelope which i popped onto a tiny wooden peg! I stamped a sentiment onto some card so that the recipient can open the envelope and read the tiny message. How sweet is that! 



This little Bouquet would be amazing for all sorts of occasions. You could use them as table decorations at Weddings, Party's etc. It would also make a gorgeous gift for someone who may be in Hospital etc. Of course you can even make them to decorate your home, they look so sweet and really pretty. Of course the great thing is they won't die!

I am super proud of my creation and i hope you love it as much as me. Please make sure to check out my step by step tutorial. I will put a link to my video at the end of this post.

I hope you will make one for yourself :-) 

Bye for now

Beautiful & Realistic Flower Gift Bag


Paper flower gift bag

Hi Everyone :-) 
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I did mean to post this yesterday when i did the Youtube tutorial, however i have been having the worst Migraines ever!! Staring at the computer seems to be making it worse, so i thought i better have a break from typing etc. 

I am sure you have seen these beautiful Flower Bags in Florists etc, they are so pretty but can be quite expensive. I thought i would try and make my own version! It turned out way better than i thought and the great thing is it will last forever! My flowers are a mix of Paper, Silk and Foamiran. It looks gorgeous and i am so pleased with it.

This Flower bag was pretty simple to make, its just a case of choosing your flowers and gluing them into some dry Florists Foam. I picked mine up from Amazon, i think i got 4 in a box so lots let to make more or other things :-) Here is the LINK

This would be a perfect gift for anyone who is in Hospital etc as they do not allow real Flowers. You may even just want to make one for yourself to display at home, we all love Flowers right???? :-) 

Please make sure you check out my Tutorial which will show you step by step how to create this beauty. I will put the link to the video at the end of this post.
