Got to give it up!! (still going with my song titles!)


Good Evening all you crafty people, have you had a crafty day, I do hope so.
This is something I made as a demonstration model for Sir Stampalot, In other words I had to give it up!!, every one say arr!! I may treat myself though it would look so nice sat on my untidy desk. the ribbon box comes in a flat pack, If I sold quite a few of them I could have one of my very own, (so if you fancy one just remember to say you saw it on Chris's blog tehe!!) I painted it and added paper and of course those cuttlebug quilled flowers as seen on the last 2 posts, it is made by kaiser craft and I got it from good old Sir Stampalot.
hope you like, here is a close up of the quilled flowers. have a great weekend love Chris xx

Hi Chris hope your well and you I know I loved the ribbon box when you was making it at SirStampalot but I would need much more than one but like you said just one on your desk with fav ribbons in would look fab.Tried to sent recipe but your mail will not let it through.

Lesley said...

YOu have been busy - great item tho - best wishes Lesley x

Grenouille Greetings said...

This is very pretty, Chris, and those Sirstampalot mateys are so nice that surely they would give you one as reward for making such good demonstration! Are the ribbons just in loose loops inside or is there some mechanism to hold them and thus prevent them from becoming tangled? Warmest wishes, Lesley

Oh Chrissy,I'm sorry I've not commented sooner, I've had so much trouble with internet, tried to catch up on my Allsorts comments, etc! then for some reason I can't get on to some blogs - not sure why! Anyway this really is beautiful, it's so pretty, the papers & everything just go together perfectly. It was such a lovely surprise to cath up yesterday, Mac was dissapointed she didn't get to see you. If you pop over to my blog there's an award for you.
