Hello, lovelies...as promised a month or so ago, here is the progress on my card box project. The last piece of material is a black brocade which is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. I have to buy bling and what not, thinking black rhinestones around the box opening and will be putting something on top that says "Cards"...right now I imagine a place setting type folded card with the writing in elegant scroll. That's subject to change though lol. The top box had to be painted black before input fabric on it because what I bought was a glittered black tulle.


My grandma would be laughing about how much duct tape I ended up using on the inside 馃槀馃槀馃槀馃槀 thank you to all who provided tips and feedback. I'll post again when it's complete, but I got this much done in about 3 hours.

    Working on a full sized alien body for edible display for our Halloween party 馃槀馃槀馃槀 but that would look pretty gruesome at the moment. Currently testing different coloring agents for steamed chinese dumplings to make them look like intestines 馃槀馃槀馃槀 (please don't judge me on that one, we just really get into Halloween).

    Lol no, probably not. I have 5 separate parties and 3 family events we have to host between now and the wedding, so I'm working on things for more than 1 event at a time, otherwise I'll miss something! 馃檪

    Lol thank you! My grandma said duct tape fixes everything. After getting fabric glue all over my hands, the duct tape came into play on the inside of the boxes 馃槀

    Thank you Smiley smile the last material order got delayed to tomorrow, but I'm still hoping to have it finished by the weekend. I'm an accounting professional so today, tomorrow, and Thursday are pretty heinous and long work days, so we'll see if I feel like knocking it out whenever I get home LOL

    Well, hopefully, it will come in for you!! Well yeah goodness, I bet its been long days!! Maybe doing something to relax might help that unless you find doing project stress-relieving?? If you don't get it done this week or the next that's okay though!!
