something recycled for TOMIC

Hi everyone, Hope you are all well...and getting lots of craft time in.
As soon as I seen what the latest challenge was at TOMIC I knew what I was going to recycle...
This darrell lea chocolate container!! (pic below)

And here is what I transformed it into...
a thankyou gift box...

I thought this would be lovely to refill with chocolate of some description...maybe m+m's or smarties..or you could even use it to put a small present in. The image is coloured with usual lol and the purple ribbon around the outside is seam binding from shopbron (
The butterfly is from a spellbinders die and the purple mesh is from my local craft store regal craft!

Well that's all from me today, I hope you enjoy my latest project and Im sure I will be back soon with some more inspiration for you.
Thanks, Hugz ashlee

Create a scene - inside a napkin fold card

Hi everyone, Im back with some more inspiration for the current create a scene challenge at Mad for Markers...This time I had a go at making a napkin fold card, I hadnt made one of these before and when I saw it I just had to have a go!!

I coloured the butterfly image three times, then cut it out differently for each one to make the wings layered.
I added some stickles and liquid pearls to the wings for a bit of bling!!

This is the card with the holder off...about to be unfolded....

and look whats inside...Its gorgeous butterfly tilda in her secret garden.

The images are all coloured with copics, available from the mad for markers store
