Altered lunch bag for Craft Box Uk

 Hi crafty friends. I'm here with another project as a design team member for Craft Box UK.

It's an altered lunch bag and I used a pad from the pretty paper collection called "Her Garden".

This paper pad has 10 beautiful floral designs.




Altering a lunch bag is very easy, you just fold the lower part up and glue the sides to 
create a pocket. The top flap is then folded over the pocket to create a envelope.
You decorate all sides with the patterned papers.




I torned all paper edges with a tearing ruler and distress them with brown distress ink.
I also covered the back of the pocket with the pretty papers.




I made small 3 tags to go inside the pocket.




The front is embellished with paper flowers, resin flowers and leave die cuts.
I also added some lace trim on the bottom of the envelope and on the flap.






To keep the envelope closed I attached a piece of lace and a long ribbon on the flap
 with a brad. You can wrap the ribbon around the envelope to keep it closed.



The flowers and pretty papers are available at the

Craft Box UK webshop


Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Take care and until next time.

Hugs, Henriëtte.

Spellbinders APG die of the month October 3D camera

 Hello everyone! 


I'm back with another project using the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace October die set 

designed by the talented Becca Feeken.

This month the club members received a 3D vignette camera.





I created the 3D vignette camera using papers from Carta Bella - Country Kitchen.



On the four panels inside the camera I glued a few recipes.
 I thought that would fit the papers very well.

Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace October die set - 3D pop up vignette camera

 Hello everyone. 

I'm back with another project using the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace October die set, 

the 3D pop up vignette camera.

This time I created the full 3d camera, which can be laid flat to put in an envelope.




I used black cardstock and silver metallic cardstock. I thought the silver was a bit to shiny so I coated the paper with vintage distress collage medium from Ranger before I cut out the different pieces.

The brown strap is made from kraft colored heavy cardstock which was treated 
with ink refresher to give it a faux leather look.




On the lens I wrote with white gel pen Spellbinders APG Oct. 2020.




On the four panels I glued vintage photo's from Craft O Clock - Vintage photoset I.





I really like how this camera turned out. It looks quite real.

Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace die of the month October

 Hello and welcome to my blog. The Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace die of the month October is another awesome design by Becca Feeken.

It's a pop up 3D vignette camera. 

You can use it in many ways; as a card, a mini scrapbook or just a beautiful showpiece.


My first project is this card.



The papers I used are from Craft o Clock and Ciao Bella.
I didn't make the 3D version but kept simple with just the front of the camera.




This die set is perfect to make masculine cards.
Don't you just love the sentiment?

Steampunk tag for Craft Box UK

Hi, welcome to my blog.
Today I'm sharing another project made with the steampunk collection by


I cut the base of the tag using mdf board. It measures 10,5 x 16 cm.
I covered the tag with paper from the steampunk paperpad.


On top of the base I added a collaged panel using dimensional tape.
The panel is decorated with cut outs, metal gears, metallic tape, 
buttons and a piece of plastic with copper wax on it.
Finally I've added a big eyelet and a piece of wrinkled ribbon.




The Craft Box UK steampunk collection can be found here.

Thanks for visiting.
