Birthday Blog hop… Wednesday, Dec 6 2017 

It’s our 7th Birthday at The Paper Shelter store so we are having a ‘Birthday Blog hop’ to celebrate. We would love for you all to join us at the Paper Shelter blog and play along with our Birthday/Celebrations theme. if you joined me from Natalie’s blog then you are right on track if not you will definitely want to pop back to the start as there are great prizes to win along the way

 

I’ve chosen one of my favourites ‘Josephine’ and created this pretty gift box card:

paper shelter

I’ve used the pre coloured image and the background to create this gift box card. I’ve just made a box at the front for my image to sit on by cutting a card layer 2cm wider the image on all 4 sides. Then score at 1cm and 2 cm in from each edge to create the box. Cut out the corner sections and create tabs for easy folding

For a closer look:

Each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice as well as a chance at the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog. 

From the side:
