Pretty Handmade Fabric Storage Box

I am a big fan of storage, but sometimes you just can’t find something that is the right size, or looks right… In the end I decided to create my own, which is super simple! Using only two fat quarters of fabric, and an old cardboard box; to make a pretty handmade storage box for my planner and supplies, so they are tidy and to hand.

This is quite an easy project, and can be done in a few different ways, depending on the time you have of the skills and equipment you have available.

Fun and Fancy Floral Cards: April A-Z

Day 6! In case you missed it; It’s that time again, A-Z Challenge season! This month I am keeping things simple, sharing makes, past and present, as well as a few I’ll try to create just for the challenge! I am continuing with cheer, with handmade floral cards!

An A-Z of handmade cards - April A-Z Challenge 2022

It’s been a mixed bag so far this month in terms of weather, so I thoguht I’d dig out my bright coloured paper strips and create something floral and fun!

On The Desk – Mini Cross-Stitch Flowers

Can’t believe we’re in June! I have been trying to keep busy with cleaning and garden stuff this week; my flowers are growing, so I thought it only fitting that I work on something similar craft-wise too!

On the desk...

This year I picked up a few mini cross stitch kits. For those moments when I’m not as motivated to work on a larger project. This week has been one of those weeks…

May 2018 Handmade Cards – Family

I make all of my cards; and used to share them on here quite regularly. I haven’t all year; so I thought I’d write a post sharing some of the cards I’ve made for family and friends in the last six months!

Handmade Cards

I’m thinking of having a break from sharing all year; but possibly also doing some individual card posts over on Instagram or something. If you have any preferences, or want to see more; do let me know in the comments.

You can check out some of my handmade cards here.
