Origami star boxes for my Christmas gifts

If you know me, I love making home made presents for my friends and family for Christmas.

Here are some origami boxes that I made, some of them are already gone in the mail
or taken by my daughters!!!!

As you can see I love to retain the integrity of the products that 

I used and feature the paper as much as I can. 

I does help when you have those beautiful hand made crochet doilies given by my BFF Tammy!

This box was done for my BFF Tammy, I keep the same theme of the envy treasure box 
that I made her for her birthday.

I used Bo Bonny paper received as a RAK from my friend Tammy as a Christmas present, this kit was put by Edith of Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique.

Coffee sleeve mini album

I had the previlege to have EstherCraft as my partner for a Coffee Sleeve Mini Album exchange. 
Here is what I did for her. I used DCWV Mariposa Stack paper and some file folders from my stash. 
(file folders with beautiful colours and butterflies)
The theme was Spring/Garden.

I used laces & fibre from my stash, flowers that I made and WOC throughout this album.

As you can see I did lots of fussy cutting and pop dot butterflies and flowers.

For many pages on this album I opened the coffee sleeve and fussy cut some flowers.

This paper is so beautiful I didn't want to over embellished it. 

I used one of my flower and added Stickles.

I distress some pages with Walnut stain.

The front view of this mini, as you can see many fussy cutting and I raised them up.
I distress this page and used Broken China to get the blue of the paper.

This is the side view.

This is the back view of the mini album, I fussy cut all the butterflies to give dimension.

Some of my work, Tags, ATC, Rolodex Card and Easel Card

Here are my Tags, I love to make them.... many of them I used my own flowers. 

I had the occasion of participating in a ATC swap, the theme was "Vintage Lady".

I participated 2 times in a Rolodex Swap, the first theme was "The Beach".
I decided to make it a bit funny :o)

The second one was "Representing Yourself", I love '40 & '50.

This is my first easel car with a note holder, I watched Charlene Gibson's tutorial, she is an amazing teacher!

Birthday gift for my BFF Tammy!

Bonjour à tous, voici une boîte faites avec des enveloppes... this is a very grungy special project
that I made with envelops and I stack them on top of each other... a special gift for my BFF.

I used Bo Bunny paper, and some of my flowers that I made. 
This Bo Bunny is an amazing collection! 

I made the box out of stack envelops and I put corrugated cardboard inside...
(there is many videos on YT explaining the process of this box).

You can see different side views of this very special project, after I was done I spay
the hole thing with Lindy's it was absolutely perfect for Tammy!

The inside of the box, I decided not to cover the corrugated cardboard that I used
to make the envelops thicker.

As you can see I made a micro mini to go into the box :D
