My Storage Solution for Craft Magazines

Every month/six weeks I get craft stamper magazine, my favourite magazine and Scrapbook magazine. I love to keep them both, the only problem is where to keep them. So while out shopping the other week we got a couple of extra wine boxes which I covered with quite thin paper which made it easier to cover. So using nothing more than paper, thick ribbon and large brads I created some storage boxes for my magazine I have three covered so far and two more ready to cover.

Bird Cage Birthday Card & bew goodies

I made this card for my friends birthday I wanted it to be really special. I fell in love with this birdcage and bird stamp set  at a recent craft show I went to and for £9.99 I had to have it

I even decided to do and insert for the card, which I don't often do, but have decided to do more often, I also lined the inside of the envelope to match the insert

I also promised to show friends my new craft goodies I got so many didn't I do well I will have so much fun playing with them The last photo was from every craft a pound everything except the Peel off the rest cost £10 if you got 10 items you got two free...bargain, oh I do love a bargain The Distressed Ink Pads were a birthday gift from my husband.

My finished Altered House

The ribbon I tried to stain with coffee did stain a little but it did not make it dark enough, so I decided against using it I went with a antique feel lace instead  I am not the best photographer but you will get the idea I filled my little house with all kinds of goodies the word on it says dream.

I had lots of fun making it The shells in it I hot glued together and added a gem These are shells brought back from our holiday to Scotland last year, the valves I got from a junk shops I altered the key some time back The little animals are from a wall hanging that broke, but like all crafters I kept it thinking I might be able to use it I stuck one of the little animals on died bead so it looked like an elephant on a ball I put a bead on his trunk Lots of little treasure I am going to display it in my hallway on a shelf above the stairs I really had fun making it. thanks for looking
