Origami box

Here is an origami box I made based off of a tutorial by Bonnie at sassyscrappers channel on youtube.  She did an amazing job explaining how to make one of these.  They are really quite simple to make. You can open the lid and put stuff inside because there is quite a bit of room in there. I made the three flowers myself.   I will list the supplies I used at the end of this post.  Thanks for looking!

Here are some tags I made playing around with my distress ink and embossing powders.  Thanks for looking.

Canvas art

Here is a canvas I altered.  This is from my trip to London earlier in the year.  I used the Fired Brick and Chipped Sapphire distress inks to color the canvas.  I used Mod Podge to adhere the crown, clock, postcard and photo onto the canvas.  I stamped the large Big Ben stamp onto the canvas along with a couple of other stamps.  The pence is an actual coin I had left over from our trip and I glued it into the bottle cap.  I made my own chipboard tile and added some washi tape, distress ink and a stamp.  Thanks for looking.

Thank you card

Here is a thank you card I made.  I did some embossing on this card and used the Shabby Shutters distress ink to color over the white doily.  The patterned paper is from the Prima Tea Thyme collection.  Thanks for looking.
