Gift wrapping

Hi all,

It's Debbie here,a few days later than expected, but better late than never I guess. 
Well are you all organised? I've a couple of cards to finish, so late this year and pressies to wrap.
On the subject of wrapping, I'm always striving to wrap presents up better and if there is a short cut, I'm there...... Here's a step by step on a pillow box I made this week using Anice's Twelve Crafters Crafting cd-rom

There are always new people starting out who may not know how to put one together, so bear with me if you already know.

I chose a backing paper from the cd-rom,then clicked and dragged the template across and printed it out:

The dashes at the sides are for scoring and folding once you've cut the template out.

Fold it in half, flatten it and glue the tab
 Here is the finished pillow box. If I can make 1 anyone can do it. I just added a wooden bell embellishment, but you can add whatever you want.

Why not share some of your Funkyhand makes or views with us either by leaving a link below in the comments or on our Facebook page.

Marleen DT - Sneak peak of new image

Hi everyone..

Its time for my monthly inspiration post for

Today I have a sneak preview of a new image to show you.
She is called "Rainy day Georgie" and you can find her in the STORE very soon..

Ive used the papers from the Rainbow stripy download as well as the Rainbow polkadots downlaod.

Here is what Ive made:

To make this card, Ive mattet and layered my papers. I then printed out Georgie and coloured with promarkers. After colouring, I covered the image with doublesided sticky sheet and dipped the image into a big tub of micro glass beads. I finished with a sentiment and a brad.

And that is all from me for today.
Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Have a paw-fect christmas!!

Morning everyone!!

Lou in with a little make for you today. I made 10 of these little cards for my friend who is an absolute hero at our local RSPCA  branch. They are having a craft fair day on the 13th December so I am hoping to get a few more makes in!!

The papers in the T Dawg wordbook download are just so paw-fect for cute pet themed cards, I love them. I printed them out at half size so none of that cute bone detail was missed on the little stocking!

I think that the Kendrick Kat Wordbook is going to get the same use this week for some more with a kitty theme!! he he he!!

I would love to make a whole stack more of these as a thank you for my gorgeous little Dasher who we rescued from the local RSPCA kennels and we are picking him up today!

Thank you for popping in

Claws, Meow and Jingle


It's Debbie here with a card I put together with the recent release of the Kendrick Kat Wordbook. The papers and wordbook pages aren't necessarily for you to create only wordbooks. I like to set myself a challenge when Anice creates a new download for Funkyhand to try something different.

There is nothing wrong with making a wordbook as the possibilities are endless, after all Anice is the queen creator of them. The papers are so fun and quirky in this collection.

For my card I opened the file up in my graphics program and made Kendrick kat do some fun poses!!!!! He is so cool....

I typed a sentiment and started to put my card together. I cut out some of the words from 1 of the papers to add some interest.

If you want to share any of your makes or views with us either below or on our Facebook page we'd love to see them.

Marleen DT - Wash it all away.

Morning everyone..

Bit of inspration from me today for 
Funky Hand.

Today I want to share a little project Ive made with the "Wash it all Away" download.
I love this download as its one of those I can use to indulge in my passion for vintage while still keeping it up to date..

Here is what I have made:

 For this project I decided to make something really different for me.
I made a little gift box and a matching card, but its the content of the box that was my original idea.

 Before I made the box or card, I made the pegs.
They started as normal wooden pegs. I simply painted them white and cut strips of a paper and glues on. The stars are cut with a die and stuck on with foam pads and glitter glue added.
To make the pegs a bit more durable, I covered them with a coat of varnish.

 I decided I wanted to make a little gift box for my pegs so searched the net for a freebie template, but couldnt find one. So instead I had a go at making my own.. Its the first time Ive tried to make a box freehand but I think it turned out ok.. 

A simple matching card.

And that is it from me for today. I hope you like what I made.
Thank you for stopping by and for any comments left behing
