Two little love birds


Oops, I thought I’d posted this on the blog ages ago! It’s the little confetti box we made at my catalogue launch at the beginning of the month.  As the day was about products and not techniques, I saw no need to reinvent the wheel and recycled a template I’ve used before. You can see it here.

I used the new Cheerful Treat Designer Series Papers, which are absolutely gorgeous – but only available to hostesses so, if you want to get your hands on it, you know what to do! Either book a party or get together with your friends to place an order of £150 or more.

The image is from the oh-so-versatile Easy Events and features two little lovebirds. I punched it out separately to remove the image, then used the sentiment on the tag at the top.  The image is coloured with blender pens and ink pad lids – and it’s a very quick and easy one to colour.

To get the hole in exactly the right place, first punch the circle out of scrap paper. Then stick the scrap circle to the box, where you want the hole to appear. Hold your punch upside-down over the circle and punch.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
