Good Friday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, sadly the weather being a little miserable, but on a positive note that means we can stay in the warm and dry and craft!
A change of plans for us today, Paul and I are off to Colchester to visit my Mum, we were going on Saturday but Paul's shifts have changed, so we thought that we had better go today, fingers crossed that the traffic ok on the M25.
Now onto today's 'Frugal Friday' feature...........
Michele's Fantastic 'tissue box' card
Michele sent this card in for me to share with all of you, believe it or not this card is made from the cardboard from a Tissue Box!!!! What an absolutely genius idea Michele, some of the tissue boxes are really pretty so I can see this being a really useful tip. I would never have guessed that you had 'upcycled' a tissue box to make this card, it would make a fab man card too.
Michele's other tip is to use the round 'cheese boxes' ..........
Decorated, they make perfect boxes for round cards, you can cover the box to match the card you have made. A brilliant idea as round boxes aren't easy to make.
Another of Michele's ideas is to use the plastic that comes with some stamp sets as acetate sheets.
I use Acetate sheets to make my own masks, I die cut a shape out of a piece of acetate and use this to ink through, its how I made all of my Bokeh backgrounds, simply die cut several different size circles out of a piece of acetate and ink away, you can make single use masks from scrap card too.
Another tip from Michele is to use the resealable bags that come with magazines etc to store your die cuts in.
Thank you for you fantastic ideas Michele xxx
