Hobby House Inspiration

Good morning everyone...

It's time for a little Hobby House inspiration today, and I've created a little gift box instead of my usual cards.

Sorry the photos are very good, it looks much better in real life, lol.

The papers are Craftwork cards 'Christmas Post' which give a lovely vintage feel to the project. I've used the sentiment image from The Hobby House's 'Winter Fairy' topper sheet.

The lid was simply decorated with Poinsettia flowers, some Snowtex and edged with one of The Hobby House's lovely pearl strings. I love adding these to projects, they just look so pretty.

Each side of the box was decorated differently.

Top right uses Marianne Creatables LR0136 Christmas tree and was finished with some pearls and Snowtex

Bottom left is simply a let it snow stamp, which has been cut out and fixed on with foam pads.

Bottom right has a 'Silent Night' sentiment from Whimsy Stamps and was cut using their Dainty Notables Die.

The box itself was just cut from a 12 x 12 piece of kraft card and scored so that it just folds together and is all held in place by its lid. I copied the design from a Tesco Belgium Truffle box which I kept because I loved the simplicity of its design. Truffles are long since gone :) !!

Just to let you know...

This month The Hobby House isn't having it's usual challenge. Jill, the owner, wanted to do something a little different in the run up to Christmas.

For full details please visit The Hobby House Challenge Blog.

Basically though you can enter this event with anything you've made, that hasn't already been showcased on our Hobby House Inpspiration Blog, and be in with a chance to win a fabulous prize!

All we ask is that your project contains a Hobby House topper.

Thank You so much for dropping by and for all your lovey comments, I really do appreciate them.

Happy Crafting,

Sorry I haven't visited for a while. Life has been very hectic at the moment.
Your box is fabulous. I love the Christmas tree and colour tones. The pearl beading looks so good. Gorgeously vintage.
If I don't see you in blogland again this week, I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.
