What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #322

Still no crafting happening at my kitchen table, hence my absence last Wednesday. No desk shot this week either, but I remembered something I haven't shared yet.

























A little bit of wedding related faffing from last month. My niece and her fiancee requested money or vouchers as they already share a home and I thought it would be nice to put the cash in a little box.


























Just for fun I made it hexagonal. It wasn't that difficult to figure out, but quite tricky to keep the angles even when assembling. Gluing a circle inside the base and lid kept the hexagon from elongating.

























I decorated the sides with old favourites Everything Eleanor and Gorgeous Grunge. Topping it off with a layered flower and tiny gold butterfly.

I'm linking up with Julia and the desk hoppers. Maybe next week I'll have some work in progress. You never know!

PS I'm putting a Stampin' Up order in this evening, if anybody needs anything.

That is so pretty and so much nicer than just putting it in an envelope

I think I need to call you a paper engineer. That box is fantastic and you certainly did a fabulous job making it. Thanks for visiting while I slept. I am also slowly getting to all the Photo challenge posts, too. Happy WOYWW from #2.

Gorgeous box! I thought you just decorated it (fabulously I might add) but no, it turns out that you folded it up too! I'm impressed!! Judy #49

Oooh, what a lovely, lovely project - and how clever of you to work out the hexagon too. I like the stamped swirls on the sides and the flower-and-butterfly on top is so very pretty.
Really gorgeous!
Have a lovely week, Fiona!

Don't worry about a lack of creating...it seems to be a trend this week and I'm one of the worst!!!

Fiona, that was an awesome idea! This little box was also a little gift itself. I'm sure the couple saved it for some small trinkets or simply to have out, I know I would have. Lovely share this week. Diane 28
