Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
A few weeks ago I won the
 and as part of the win, I was invited to be a Guest Designer.
The challenge runs for a fortnight, and I chose the letter O For Over The Edge.
So here is what I came up with for my Over The Edge it's another Tissue Box as I do love making these.

These are so easy to make, and to think I was afraid to make them at one time.
I measure my tissue box, and then do my scoring on my Hougie Board.
This one measures 5" high 4and a half inches to one side and 4" on the other.
So I cut 2 A4 pieces of card down to 5"  in height, and then I score half an inch for your gluing flap then 5" and then 9" and cut off what's left.
Glue together your flaps to make your box.
The lid will be 6 and half inches by 6 inches, and score at 1" around each side, and glue like the lid of a box.

Thank you so much for your visit and time.
I do hope you can join us for this current challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

OMG Jenny !!! what a fantastic tissue box. You need to go into business and run classes to show us all how to do these brill cards and projects. It must have taken you ages to decorate this box. You could sell them for Valentines day pressies. I live in North Kent. Do you manage to get to many shows? I am going to Sandown on Saturday. Janice xx

Hi Jenny
Just playing catch up again. Looks like we're all at the tissue boxes but the one I did is not as glamorous as this.
So lovely with the butterflies.
Best wishes.
