A Spoonful of Sugar with Friday's Sketch

After Tracy's demo at Papercrafts in Elgin on Saturday morning I called in past Tesco to pick up some emery boards as after seeing Tracy using them when covering chipboard I decided that I REALLY NEEDED some. Unfortunately Tesco had run out, but I did manage to pick up some of these CD posting boxes which were reduced to 25p each. After decorating the notebook earlier in the week I now decided that I need to alter anything and everything.

Front of Box


To cover this box I have followed the great sketch my Murmur over on Friday sketchers and this project also fits in with the challenge at Spoonful of Sugar which is paper piecing. I have paper pieced the chair with some doodlebug flocked paper. I must admit that this project probably took a lot longer than I had intended it to as I decided to completely cover the whole box as well as decorating the front and the back, but I am really pleased with it and now have another 4 to do!

Back of Box


Blank Box


Chair stamp by Whiff of Joy, Magnolia image, papers Urban Prairie by Basic Grey and Doodlebug, flowers by prima, flourishes are Quickutz, embelishments from my stash.
