What's On Your Work desk Wednesday (WOYWW) 257

Hubby is home on his days off and we were out and about last week so I missed WOYWW. Today I am late as we spent the day driving up to Cape Tribulation-which is a World Heritage listed Wet Tropics area full of gorgeous rain forest and amazing wildlife. I'm home now and will join in the crazy phenomenon that is WOYWW where arty farty people all over the World share what is on their desks and you get to drop by and see as many you are able too. Its organized by Julia so click on the link to her blog HERE if you want to join in or know more about it.  It's close to 5 pm now but here is what is on my work desk this Wednesday.

I've been doing paper crafts again making "A Card In A Box" for my Mum and my hubby's Mum's Mothers Day this week end coming. They are on the left and the trial one in white is in the middle.


Here they are closer...the greeting goes on the back.


They fold flat for posting


but pop up once opened





They are really easy to make and there is a tutorial below here if you want to know how to make them yourself. Now I'm off to snoop on other peoples desks!

Oooh, those are so pretty, not to mention clever! I saw how they were made at Julia's recent card making day..very ingenious and I like the way they fold flat for posting :-)
Lucky you for being able to get up into the rainforest like that..very envious!
Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

They are amazing pieces of art! I just love them both, the 3D work and colors. I have never tried a card like that, but someday I will give it a go. Thanks for sharing the directions!! Winnie#50

Eliza said...

I love these little boxes and have been wanting to make one for months now but never gotten around to it. Love what you have done and they are so easy to create, but look hard.

Sound like you have been having some fun up north seeing the sights, lucky you.

Have a great crafting week.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs Eliza & Yoda 51

Absolutely gorgeous! The Mums are going to love them! I'll marked your page so I can come back for the tutorial as I want to try making one. Haha somehow I only ended up with two little dots of ink spray in me! :0 What a shock. I usually wear a bib apron to protect myself and didn't yesterday. I'll have to remember to do so today as I'm starting over. I don't like the way the inks have blended and dried. Thanks for the earlier visit! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #8

This card is amazing. I have a friend who has made them for others, and I know how long they take. But in the end, it's a real gift, more than a card. Thanks for your earlier visit and happy WOYWW from #5.

Thanks for visiting me already.

My favourite designs, these are just super, I have had to re join your blog due to having to close down my old one and starting again after 550 followers. A hacker caused the issue. I would like to invite you to join up and put your name down on my new blog and also in my candy. I have three lovely artist who are sponsoring me...thanks cheers, aNNie
