tiny mailbox

Hello friends! I made this cute tiny mailbox, it´s 3" wide and 4.5" tall ☺

I followed Sueli´s pattern and instead of using patterned paper I embossed it, then I rubbed white ink and glittered the design with glitter glue.

I assembled  the box and finally added a handmade flower. I´m not sure I like it as it is, I feel like something is missing, I was thinking of adding a little bird or some butterflies somewhere around the flower. Any suggestions?
It was an easy box and very fun to make, it could make a wonderful small gift holder. Sorry about the pictures I had to take them at night, I´m working a lot lately and I can not take pictures during daylight...

Graduation card and paper flowers!

Hello crafty friends! I made my first graduation card to a friend who got his PhD last week. I struggled a little bit with it since I didn´t know what to do (and how): first it had to be a male card (hard...), second it has to be an adult greeting card to someone getting the highest level of formal education (hard too...), and third I wanted it to be not formal but on the funny side...
The easiest part was to printing it! it reads in Spanish: Congratulations! the world is yours
I used one of the fabulous images from The Graphics Fairy, then I give a bit of color with 4 of the 8 Copic markers I own: BG15, G000, E00 and C-3, not an easy task either since I don´t know how to use them yet... but they gave the card a graphic look that I was hoping I could achieve ☺

And I also wanted to show you some paper flowers I made with cupcake liners, those you buy at the dollar store? yep, those... you fold them at its middle twice to have a quarter of a circle and then glue them in two layers on a cardstock punched circle (i.e. you´ll need 8 folded liners to make a flower), glued a crystal stone (also from the dollar store) on the center and ruffled the petals a bit to give them dimension, very easy! and fun to make, now I need to use them!

some pretty tags

Hello everyone! the other day I was looking at my embossing folders and I thought they were all so pretty I needed to use them more often, so I decided right away to make these tags with scraps of craft paper, then I rubbed a white ink pad over them to enhance the details.
The images are from The Graphics Fairy (aren´t those chairs gorgeous??!!) I printed them, fuzzy cut them and placed them with foam tape.
The sentiments are stamped on some scraps of vellum paper too, they are from a Waltzingmouse set, I´m in loooooove with them! they are so versatile.
To finish I added some Star Dust Stickles to the chairs, a ribbon flower (that I embellished with pearls from a very old necklace) and tied a piece of twine. What do you think? do you like them? I think they can be used as pretty tags to go along with pretty gifts ☺

I´m showing them at:

just a Rose...

Hello my friends! remember the little box I made a few days ago? I was modifying its template and here is the result, they look exactly the same from the outside but the differences are on the inside ☺ (I made the folds different to simplify it)
I decorated it with strips of patterned paper and followed the same design on the front and back of the box. The image is from Bugaboo, that I colored it with colored pencils and fuzzy cut it before gluing it to the box. Finally I embellished it with three beautiful pearls.

I´m showing my little box at the following places:

just a note...

just a note to say Hello
Hello my blogger friends! here I am to show you a simple and pretty card I made

I printed a colored image from The Graphics Fairy, cut carefully around and glued a piece of scrap paper where I hand wrote the sentiment before attaching the image to the front of the card with foam tape. The ruffled paper is a strip of a paper napkin (with a pretty design) that I glued it with a hot glue gun.
It looks better in real life though...
