Just popped by quickly with the second floral card
I do love these papers, I've ordered more just waiting for them to arrive.

This pretty lace is from Live & Love Crafts and so is the Shabby Ribbon.

Boxes, boxes, boxes :)

Hello again, 
I've been asked quite a few times how I make my boxes for my cards, well I'm sure there's lots of tutorials out there but this is how I make mine, quite simple really.
These are 6" square
First I choose a good quality card, this is my favourite it was recommended to me by my lovely friend Sue (playingwithpaper) on Docrafts,  I buy the card here
1) First I cut out two squares... 
  One at 7&7/8 Square (Base)
and the other 8" Square (Lid)

 I then score the base at 7 1/8 all the way round

 and score the lid at 7 2/8 all round

Next I cut into all the corners like this

 and fold at all the scored lines
 Glue in the corners like below
 and there you have it, one base & one lid! 
and for posting I use these brown Pizza style boxes below
I hope this is useful to some of you (for ease of finding it again, I will add it to my tutorial page above) 
The Pizza Style boxes are from Cartons Direct online
Have a lovely weekend
Hugs
