Today I am in the middle of making one of those exploding boxes.. Hope to get it finished by the weekend lots of little bits to it but am enjoying doing something a little different.. I always like to do something new to me.. There are so many of them on youtube for inspiration.. So just had a cuppa and browsed away.. Then I did my own thing as many of the measurements called for 12 x 12 sheets of cardstock.. I wanted to use my 6x6 paper packs to make it and by doing it a little smaller. I was able to just cut one sheet into 4 and cover the inside and outside with only 2 and a half sheets of my 6x6 paper packs.. They are such lovely papers from Kaisercraft and think they will look lovely for this.. Lots of inked edges, so very inky fingers at the moment and lots of drying time so nothing gets all smudgy..
So here is my desk...
I did make a card to pop my little birdcage in. Thanks for all the suggestions last week of what to do.. I just popped a little brad at the top and hooked the little birdcage over the top..
It was such fun last week also to catch up with another WOYWWer. Eliza at Queenartoypia and I met at her lovely workplace the gardens are so lovely and the day was just perfect.. We chatted away about all things crafty while drinking lots of coffee.. Those lovely flowers on the right of my desk and the little pinecone and leaves are a present that Eliza made and gave to me I am using a few on my exploding box.. We had a bit of a swap of dies, was lovely to get some ones to use that I do not have yet..
So hope you have a great peek around desks and make sure that you link up with Julia's Stamping Ground this WOYWW?
Have a great day
