Today I would like to show you my entry into the Scrapbooking / Off The Page  Mandy showed us how to make these boxes so I just made this one on a larger scale, covered it in cream and brown card and embellished it with Spellbinders dies and paper flowers.    I was awarded 2nd prize in the Off the Page section. The box holds two albums of Family Birthdays. The albums are made of chipboard and I have decorated them to match the box. 

I hope you will come back next week to see the inside of the first album. Thanks for visiting.

My Gazebo is cut on the Klik N Kut Zing using an SVG Cut file. I made a couple of chairs and a table to put inside the Gazebo. The top section lifts off to reveal a gift box in the base

Royal Queensland Show - Lighthouse Gift Box

Another Papercraft /Gift Box entry for the Show and also one you may have seen on my blog before.  I was awarded first prize in the Papercraft section for my entry. The roof lifts off the house to reveal the gift box as well as the top of the lighthouse. The very top of the lighthouse tower holds a  light which flashes.

I have used Graphic 45 By the Sea Papers for this project. The boats were included in the file as a card pattern so I adapted them to 3d boats.
