Blooming All Over

Happy St. George's Day!

Lucky me!


I get to give the first glimpses of the May Bubbly Funk kit today on the Bubbly Scrumptious emag and I get to post them here too.

The flowery chintzy papers reminded me of those gorgeous vintage hat boxes so for my first project I delved into the pile of "that'll come in useful one day" things and pulled out one of a set of nesting gift boxes my mum bought years ago - there must have been loads in the set - because she used some before I got my hands on them, and I've tarted up a few to use for presents - and there's still 3 or four left!
The one I chose for this project is abt 12.5 cms in diameter, anad before I got the scissors and glue out it looked like this:
By the time I'd finished it looked like this:
You can see the whole project by visiting Bubbly Scrumptious, where you'll find loads of inspiration for all sorts of projects, plus some non-craft fun and games too

I've a crafting list as long as my arm to get through so I'm heading back to my craft desk now. I hope you've enjoyed your visit to the Wafflezone, and will come again soon :)
