Tassles are creeping onto my blog


Another challenge and more worryingly, another tassle has found its way into my project. This is my entry for this week's Colour Q blog. It's not brilliant as I was messing about trying out a new template I've bought from MTME. And I have to thank Stephanie from whose blog I found it. She did a beautiful job of the box and I was intrigued to find out how to produce that stunning, elegant lid design.

And now I know. And yes it is a bit on the fiddly side but worth sticking with. Now I've had a trial run with it, I'm keen to have another play and produce another one so don't be surprised if you see this box crop up here in the future haha.

Love this, Paul! The folding on the lid must have taken you ages - well worth it though, looks very professional. Great colour combo too x

Oh but the tassle is the perfect finishing touch for this project! I can't even wrap my head around how this box came together - I'll have to check out that template. Beautiful job!
