Just Add Ink #274.....Inspiration!

Happy Friday peeps! And being Friday means it's a brand new challenge over at Just Add Ink. This week Trish has given us some lovely inspiration to work with and other than the earthy rustic colour palette, l was inspired to recreate the lovely parquetry effect using the SU "Triple Banner" punch.

To create the flower l used some dryer sheets and the "Floral Frames" framelits from SU and popped it up on this super cute faceted gift box...You can see the panel on the left is slightly ajar, that's where it opens so you can pop the goodies in..:0)
You'll have to excuse my dull pics, as Melbournes weather has been so gloomy of late, that getting a decent pic of anything is just doing my head in...Grrr!

The design team have created some lovely projects, don't forget to pop over and check them out!

You can find the faceted box tutorial by Anna Krol here, it's a great tutorial that is simple and easy to follow.....
