Walk of Fame -September 2011

Så har ännu en månad passerat och som vanligt har vi finkammat bloggvärlden på jakt efter exceptionella kort. Och som vanligt har vi också funnit massor av underbara alster. Det är alltid lika svårt att välja ut några enstaka av dessa, men här är i alla fall de kort som valts ut till september månads Walk of Fame:

Yet another month has passed and as usual we have "scanned" your blogs for marvellous creations. And as usual we have found lots and lots of fantastic cards and other projects. As always it is difficult to pick out just a few of them, but here are the cards we finally chose for September month´s Walk of Fame:

Soo beautiful, all three of them!! 

Thank you ladies for this wonderful inspiration!

Gratulerar * Congratulations* Onnea !!

Tutorial - Handkerchief box

Autumn is here and my family is taking turns on beeing ill from stubborn colds. So what better than to make your own "First aid cold-kit" ;)


Hösten är här och i min familj turas vi om att dras med envisa förkyldningar. Så vad kan vara bättre än ett hemmagjort "Förstahjälpens förkyldnings-kit" ;)

Start with a cardstock size 30x19 cm and follow the instruction below.
( ----- = cut , _____ = fold)


Skär till ett cardstock i storleken 30x19 cm och följ mallen nedan.
(----- = Klipp, _____ = vik)

When you are done it should look something like this:


När du är klar ska det se ut såhär ungefär:

Cut out the hole for the tissues and start to put patterned papers on the part that is going to be the box.


Skär ut hålet där näsdukarna ska dras fram och börja klä in askdelen med mönstrat papper.

When you are done, turn the whole thing (patterned paper down, facing the table) and fold the box.
Glue the 12 cm paperback to the boxpart's backside. The box should fit a handkerchief package that you can buy at your local store or at the pharmacy.

När du är klar så vänder du på hela papperet (så det mönstrade sidan ligger neråt mot bordet) och viker ihop asken. Limma fast 12 cm baksidan mot askdelens baksida. Asken ska passa till näsdukarna som man köper i affären eller på apoteket.

Now the fun part of decorationg the box begins :)


Nu börjar den roliga delen med att dekorera asken :)

Just think of this! Don't decorate the "back" with heavy things. It may tilt :)


Tänk på en sak! Dekorera inte "baksidan" med för tunga grejer. Då den kan tippa.:)

I made a little holder for lip-balsam on the side.


Jag gjorde en liten hållare till lypsylen på sidan.

The patterned papers are from Pion Design. The stamps are from Magnolia.


Det mönstrade papperet är från Pion design och stämplarna från Magnolia.

I hope that you liked my tutorial and if you have any questions feel free to e-mail me at and I'll answer :)



Jag hoppas att ni gillar min tutorial och har ni frågor eller funderingar så är det bara att maila till mig på så ska jag svara :)
