I finally got my camera out - I even found the USB-cable so I could transfer the pics from the camera to my computer! :)
So, without much further ado, here are the pics of my little cartonnage-project. It was great fun, lots of fiddly bits (my favourites!) and a small mistake in the final stage, but hey, who cares - I think it looks great and so does little H too! I've already had to promise her I'd make her one as well, now I just have to find something to stitch for the lid!
A close-up of the lid:
and what does the insides look like? No need to keep you wondering, here's a pic with my laces in it:
If you're wondering about the specifics, all sides are 10x10 cms - my cutting mat has grids every 5 cms so that was very practical! ;) I used normal white kiddy craft glue - worked very well with a brush to get an even layer of glue on the surfaces, plus it dries clear. I'm not counting on this to last forever, so I wasn't too concerned with acidity and such - I'm a lot more picky when it comes to framing my xs pictures!
The chart for the lid is an extract from a freebie from Anne les petites croix called 9 carrés.
That's all for now, folks - please come join me again some time mid next week! :)
