My next project is a pillow box that I made to put my mother-in-law and my BFF's jewellery gifts in (they got different jewellery each, but had the same box and tag). I thought I would enter this one in for Val's Papertrey Princess 3D Box challenge. As I was very pushed for time this week instead of making a matching gift tag I used some old cream ones that my MIL found a ton of at work, which she very kindly brought to me in case I could find a use for them! (My answer was of course I can!)

And my final project was another biggie! I made 2 of these calendars, one for my mum and the other for my MIL. I thought I would enter this one in for Lee's Papertrey Princess Challenge to make a 3D project. (Lots of pictures for this one so be warned!)
I really didn't think about the amount of work involved in making these when I started them and if I could do them again, I definitely would NOT do colouring in on every one as my hand was killing at the end and I ran out of about 4 different copics, so have to get those refilled soon. I used the same stamp set on each page, the gorgeous Delightful Dahlias and coloured each month in a different colour as suitable to that month as I could get! For the front cover I used some Kraft cardstock and added a small Dahlia die in each of the cardstock colours - I was sick of colouring by this point! I do really like them and both my mum and MIL loved them but next year (if I do them again) I will rethink my design!
