Altered Card Holder Box and a Video
I realized that I didn't share this altered recipe box with you.
Remember my greeting card set that I made for a Christmas gift?
Well I altered this recipe box for the recipient to hold them in.
The lady who will receive them isn't into fancy and frilly things..so as hard as it was, I kept it simple, very simple. It was so hard not to add a flower or two ;)
But I did add this drawer pull :)
I inked the wood with Distress Stain. It was the first time I had used it on wood and was really impressed on how well it worked on the wood.
I inked the edges of all the papers and even did some stamping on the paper.
I was able to fit 12 handmade cards and 12 envelopes.
Here is the video I did which I share a bit more.
Onto My Day:
My photos were finally ready to pick up. I ordered the photos of my girls and it was only suppose to take 1 hour to develop. When I phoned they said with the Christmas rush it will take 24 hours.
That wasn't a problem. So phoned 24 hours later and was told it will take another 24 hours.
I still have to get my Christmas cards mailed out. So picked up the photos and put them all together and they are all ready to go in the mail tomorrow.
Then its time to sit back and relax until Christmas.....oh ya and I still have to go Christmas shopping, teehee.
Wayne and I did a bit of Christmas shopping, and I mean a bit, lol.
I have some out of town gifts to mail, so I got those together to mail off first thing in the morning as well.
Are you all ready for the holidays? I am far from it, but no worries ;)
Kristy and I did some baking...well my type of baking, which consists of melting chocolate, lol.
I will share those with you on another post :)
I hope you all had a creative Sunday :)
Off to watch the finale of Survivor :)
