What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #252

A mess! This is the result of Hurricane Fiona passing through. Packing up for class this morning, in a big rush.

P1030413

Mainly leftovers of the projects from the last couple of classes I’ve done. I bring all the card/paper scraps home with me, so that I can put them in our recycling bin, rather than the mixed rubbish bin available to me at the venue. Obviously they didn’t make it to the bin last time and I emptied the container onto my desk ready to refill.

Moving swiftly on….

….here’s what we made today. A flower garland card and matching gift box*. Just in time for Easter, but equally useful for a Spring birthday.

Keeping it short today. Those boxes need unpacking again and my little cherubs will be bursting through the front door at any moment. Join the fun at Julia’s place.

*If you fancy making a gift box like this one, there’s a tutorial here.
