Noteboxes

Obviously these didn't sell too well in W.H.Smith, this year!
Another 25 % off, on top of this, would've been even better!! LOL ;-)

So I snapped them up!
Pencil rulers.
I'm always on the look out for a bargain... and these are ideal to complete my next 'easy' idea ;-)


Setting to work, I gathered together some beautiful K&Co Amy Butler scrapbook papers (not quite as brightly coloured this time); chipboard;prima flowers; a small, empty box ; scissors...


And this well used, little gadget which I love...great for rounding off corners.
My lipstick, pen drive and this corner rounder are the three little things I most love!

I'm going mostly blues and greys today,for a change..with the odd touch of pale pink and green.
Cover the large piece of chipboard, with paper.
From the small box lid, cut off one side .
Stick one to the other.
Decorate.

Pop in your pencil and papers.
Hey presto..noteboxes



That's all there is to it!
