Monday monday

Didn't it get dark early this evening, I don't know why it came as a shock but it always does. Ahh well, not long til spring and plenty of crafting time meanwhile. Here's a couple of things I made over the weekend, both for Just Bex challenges and using scrummy Pink Petticoat papers. First a swing card, I just love these papers, so funky.

Next I turned this box...
Into this! Much prettier. I can't say Im a huge fan of altered stuff as practical storage, in my experience things decorated with blooms and ribbon seem to fall apart very quickly in my craft room. Maybe I expect too much from my storage lol. Still, these washing tablet boxes have a fab click shut action cause of the cardboard tabs inside so I reckon I will actually use this, probably to take bits and pieces to classes.

See you tomorrow for a fab Little Extra challenge from the Daring Cardmakers!

Great use of an empty box - I bet it smells like fresh laundry inside as well which is a bonus! Love the card made with the PP papers, I must try and use mine more often...
