2nd Secret Sister Gift

Time to share what I sent to my Secret Sister on the 2nd month of our swap. I made this little wall hanging for her. It is hard to see but it is stamped with the motif from Friends 24/7, and very distressed. The twill tape is stamped with the flower stem from the same set, and then I spelt out the letters CREATE and blinged it up with some diamonds. I originally made it for my own craft room, but loed it so much, I had to share.
And I made this fabulous Cup cake box. My stamping sister Philippa came over with this great new template for us to try out, and I can tell you, our thinking caps were NOT ON! We made so many mistakes and laughed so much at our selves, but we got there in the end, and the result was quite pretty! Apparently, it didn't mail to well though, even though I papped it up with bubble wrap, what can you do? I filled it up with little twirls, another of Pats fav's.
And I made a cute banana and chocolate cupcake card to match.

Your secret sister was so lucky to receive this gift. It is a shame it fell apart a little bit. I am surprised you had dificulty I found the instructions quite straight forward. I had so much fun with this box I did two of them and the only thing was that I had to put loads of sticky strip for the top of the box. I am so glad you got there in the end. The end result looks fab even if it was short lived.I hope it didn't put you off making another one.

I can just imagine what you and Phil were saying when things weren't quite working out!!! ;oP Looking at the finished product I'd never have guessed you had any problems as it looks amazing! Love the card too, great colour choice (but you always seem to have such good taste!!)

Great job with the box. I tried putting one of those together once. It didn't go well. I think I finally gave up and just tossed it in the garbage!
