An origami starbox and more wintercards

Hi , everyone, a new week has begun . I read the sad story on lilibean's paperie  about
Katie Renz.. I wish to express my  deepest sympathy  for her family. I did not know her blog .

Recently I discovered  a blog , called Wenches Kort og Papir , where I found such beautiful creations : this is the link :
DT Ett Trykk - Gave nr 3, august 2011 
I liked the star box so much I searched you tube and found some tutorials on how to origami fold the box . I used two sided patterned paper,size 30 cm by 30 cm or 12" by 12",  made the box and then I embellished it . I used a Martha Steward punch and distressed the punched parts before I glued them to the sides . Some prime roses and pink pearls, a tag were added to the sides .

 This flower I made from  a  ribbon, I pleated double and stitched one side , gathering it together by pulling the thread , forming the rose  . I glued a primrose to the middle .

Now I also have some wintry cards to share with you.

I lightly distressed the edges , Stamped the upper side with a  frost lined stamp in gold ink . A small peace of old music paper and twine , and a 3D  cutting file . Some embellishments and pearls .

For the next card I used some lace and hand stitched pearls around it .

 Also used a 3D picture .

My last card :

 Lace and a piece of jewelry ,
 some glitter glue ,

and again my 3 D picture .

The winter cold has stricken down and it effects my pain in such a way that it is very tiring . So this post is short in writing , I hope to be able to craft this week . Talk to you later , ............love, Rosa

Flap Album

Hello my friends,

I've made a flap album as a small gift to someone .

 I used the left over  packing of  the 6 by 6 patterned paper . I glued the top flaps together.So :
 It consists of a middle an two side flaps . For that I attached two existing embossed  cards I had in my stash .
I covered all sides with antique gold metallic acrylic paint .

 The side panels open up , an I have decorated them .You can have a closer look in the next photo"s .

 I made use of beautiful cut out table cards , I had bought me when I was still able to give dinners .

I used a strip of acetate to hold this small envelope .

The middle section opens up again

 And the middle page I embroidered on both sides and attached a pocket in the middle .

Here I added another card from my stash with a round aperture , to place a picture behind .

 This is the upper aperture card for a picture.

And both sides open up again : upwards and downwards:

They have pouches to hold tags or photo's .

This is it for now , will be posting some more winter cards in a few days  have a lovely week !
Take care ,
Love, Rosa
