For this bag I used the "On Safari" range from Docrafts West Design Products.

Here is the template for it, and also the video tutorial:-

Double Pop-Up Box Bridge Card

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a card that I came up with whilst on a craft demo. I was thinking about pop up box cards and was wondering how I could change them. I was also thinking about bridge cards. Then I had the eureka moment - what if I combined the two?!!! Voila! A new card was born!!!
For this first one, I used Paper Addicts Christmas Belle paper pad and First Edition Cupcake dies:-

For this next one I used the new Bluebirds and Roses range from West Design Products:-

For this next one I used First Edition Forever Free papers with the embellishments from the Bluebirds and Roses range:-

Here's the template so you can have a go. There's also a video tutorial over on my You Tube channel, so head over there for more information.

Hexagonal Stacked Gift Box

This box was a bit of a challenge!! I had a template for it, but the outer didn't match up with the size of the drawers so I had to tweak it a bit. Let's just say that this will probably be the first and last time that I make it! I've made a square version of this which was definitely much easier to make - but I fancied trying a hexagonal one as I like hexagonal boxes.
