So pretty!

Hello friends

If you caught my Let's Party show this week on The Craft Channel
you may have seen me making up the very pretty Garden Party die set.
It's a really nifty set in that the side panels (you cut/emboss 4 for the box)
have a perforated line so it makes folding a dream.
Each part of this die set could equally be used on other projects.
The cute flowers would lend themselves to lots of projects.
The pretty strip handle would be a great border on cards and scrapbook pages.
The square - well, all basic shapes are needed!
And looking at the box side panel - how about using that on the front of a card 
to attach a gift voucher/card.
All in all a very useful die set.

Here is one of my samples made up in the lovely My Mind's Eye -

 The papers are really good quality (nice and thick), patterned both sides and die cut beautifully.
The boxes can be adapted as cupcake holders, Easter baskets,
table favours and more.

As each show is aired I can finally start sharing more projects - yippee!

Take care friends, I'm back very soon.

  5. Morning Christine, I have this die set, and used it for an Easter basket filled with mini eggs and I also attached a couple of die-cut bunnies too. It is a fabulous set and your sample here is gorgeous, beautiful papers.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  11. Hi Christine
    Beautiful little box today, I love the papers.
    I have only managed to catch one show (via my laptop) which was great. The Platinum machine looks really interesting. I think I will have to ask the man in red if I have been a very good girl this year!!
    Take care
