Cute bags

Hello there crafters!
I hope you had a great Easter weekend.
I have another project to share with you today - some treat bags I made last month for Women's Day on 8th March. I found a great tutorial on YouTube and decided to give it a try, although with some changes. I wanted a nice packging to hold some yummy chocolate I had bought for my female co-workers. The bag is entirely made with different Spellbinders dies - love the pink and black combination!! I made a total of 8 bags and their recipients loved them! Useless to say I had so much fun creating those! I had just purchased this cute buckle die and had to use it straight away!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice weekend you all!

Matchbox chest

Hello there crafters,
I hope you all had a nice and pleasant Easter time with your family and friends.
I didn't have much time for crafting the past few months but I've managed to complete a cute Easter project which has been on my mind for quite a while.
A few months back I bought a lovely matchbox die from Sizzix and decided to use it to put together a chest. I found a good tutorial on YouTube which was made with a similar Sizzix die and I managed to put 2 chests together. I used some gorgeous Prima papers to cover the chests, and on the top I added a metal handle from which I've hung a tassel, a key and a number tag. I had so much fun creating those chests, believe me! In each of the 4 drawers I put a small bag with chocolate Easter eggs for the recipient. the handle of the drawers were made with some drop pearls attached with a tiny brad. For the feet of the chest I used 4 round wooden pieces which I painted black. don't you just love the result?

Thanks a lot for visiting and if you have any question, just ask! :D
