I find ideas for my projects in all sorts of places. Sometimes it’s a combination of colours I like, or it might be a picture on Pinterest of Facebook. Other people’s YouTube is often a source of inspiration too, as it the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue (lots of good ideas in there – definitely worth taking a look) and crafting magazines.
The inspiration for today’s item was the paper from the Toil and Trouble DSP, which made me think of the phrase “mad as a box of frogs”. So I made a box of frogs (with a frog inside, too!)
I thought I’d share the process I go through when calculating how big to cut my card when I’m making a box for an irregularly-shaped object. Here’s the tutorial.
I want to thank Dawn Griffith for the idea to use the Fox Builder punch to make the frog embellishment – I meant to say so in the tutorial but I got a bit carried away and forgot to do it. Who would have thought that the punch is so versatile?
So that’s it for now, but I will be blogging again soon.
Meanwhile, keep crafting!
