Skate Box

This little ice skate box makes a sweet gift box for a little girl.  I’ve made this before in a blue color, but the pink papers from Pion Design’s My Precious Daughter make this extra special.  
The ice skate was made from a cutting file from the Pazzles library.  I cut two of them and then inserted a small box between the two ice skate pieces.  
Best wishes for a great week!




2015 Calendar Cube

Hello!  I made this calendar cube using the amazing, intricate Tattered Lace dies and the beautiful papers of Pion Design’s My Precious Daughter.  This project was featured by Tattered Lace at CHA in Los Angeles this year.  You can find this project with some others I’ve made for Tattered Lace at their Pinterest site here.  You can find my instructions/templates on how to make this project on the Pion Design post here.
