The Project Share Blog Hop – October 2022 – Black & White

Hello everyone.

Each Thursday I share an awesome project created by my friends Jill, Gez and Verity. Once a month (normally the first Saturday, but we delayed it this month) we each create a new project on a theme and link our blogs so you can hop around and see them all.

Our theme for this month is Black and White, so I’ve made a little monochrome gift box.

Once you’ve seen my project please click on the next button below to hop over to see the next awesome project created by these talented ladies.

My little box features pieces of Basic White card that have been embossed with the gorgeous Quatrefoil embossing folder…

And it’s a perfect fit for a little tin of vaseline lip balm…

The tray that holds the lip balm has reinforced sides so is nice and sturdy. To find out how to make this please click on the image below…

I’ve got the measurements etc listed below but in the meantime please click on the next button to see what Jill has created to share with us…

Here’s the full list of blogs in this hop:
