Introducing my new Exploding Sewing Box Tutorial


 I'm really excited to be sharing a new project with you today.  With H being at home since May being creative has been a real stop start and almost non existent process but now I have all the time in the world to create new designs and projects to share with you.  
I thought I'd start with something a little different to an album, although albums are in the pipeline so if you love my style hold on in there lol!! 
This exploding box could be decorated in fabric as well as paper as I've done in the samples here.  The lid has a piped effect around the edges and a simple painted wooden knob adds a practical finishing touch to the lid. 
There's a full PDF Tutorial available from my website that includes the dimensions for cutting the chipboard pieces, a step by step cutting and assembly guide and a follow along video too.  If you prefer to buy the basic chipboard kit, they will be available from the website shortly too.  What a great gift idea  if you're looking to make hand made presents this Christmas. 
I've used papers from the Cafe Parisian 12 x 12 pad and the 12 x 12 Patterns and Solids by Graphic 45 to create two different looks with papers that have the same colour pallette. I loved the orange stripe so that one features on both samples. 
Colourway 1 - Umberellas 

Colourway 2 - Floral Souffle

If you'd like to come along an join me at a workshop to make the project keep an eye on my FB page and event listing here on the blog
Well thats all for today folks, have a good one, thanks for calling by and look forward to sharing more crafty inspiration with you shortly. :-) C
