Well, I managed to get all my decorating done at the weekend. Just got a bit of woodwork to paint but that can be done in the evenings. I am really happy with the way my lounge looks. Hopefully, my new sofas will be arriving in a couple of weeks as the old ones do look a bit out of place at the moment lol.
I am here today to share some inspiration for our current monthly challenge over at The Crafting Cafe. Our theme for this month is:
Not a Card
So you can enter with anything you like as long as it is not a card. It could be a tag, box, bag or something completely different.
We have two great sponsors joining us this month:
Delicious Doodles - a prize of 4 digi images of the winners choice
Artbymiran - a prize of 3 digi images of the winners choice
Here is my inspiration project using a lovely image from Delicious Doodles 'Jolly Holly Postbox'.
As you can see I decided to make a milk carton box for christmas. I used a basic template that I have for the box but adjusted the sizing to take account of the image size. I coloured the image using promarkers and added some red stickles for the berries. After using some distress ink around the edges I matted onto red card. For the remaining panels on the milk carton I used some paper from Papermania. This again was distressed with red ink around the edges and matted onto red card. A little bow was the finishing touch. To fasten the box I used a couple of mini pegs. I really didn't feel that the box needed anything else.
Here is another view:
