Playday yesterday

Hopefully everyone had a fun time at playday yesterday. The main project of the day was milk cartons from a5 card and a holder to fit 4 of them. Got to say there were some beauties made by the end of the day, with Sandra being the first to finish. Must admit to being gobsmaked at Sandra finishing first as she normally lags at the back with Kay. Could it be that Kay sitting on a different table had something to do with that???? lol.

This is my original sample and used gold pearl card very lightly embossed in the SU lattice folder with cream & soft suede cardstock. I've used a border punch to decorate the carton & holder with a SU wheel & crumbcake ink. Crumb cake taffeta ribbon (I'm hoping we get it back in the catty in Oct) and a triple embossed "button" from the new button embosslit folder. Nesties for the handle and 4 baby wooden pegs to finish.

This rather bashed about sample was made using the same measurements but with increasingly longer pieces of card. Stamped with a few colours with one of the hostess sets and windows from the label punch. I didnt really go to town with the decoration on this one as it was just to show you can make them any height using the same template. It's now destined for the bin but I'm going to be rescuing the lil SU paperclips first. They're one of those embellies that I find too nice to use lol.
