Patchwork Polly Box
 as seen on TV.


Hi there crafter's

Today I am sharing with you something 
you may already have seen!

This is a box I made for Jayne Nestorenko as a gift,
after purchasing her then new range of designs a few years ago,

Patchwork Polly and friends.

 I sent it to Jayne and she liked it and asked me if she could share 
it on the TV, the next time she was on Create and Craft.
Well that was a big decision to make I can tell you!
it took me all of a milli second to answer
Yes Please!

So the eagle eyed of you, that are fans of Jayne's designs
will have already seen it in detail.
I was amazed at how long both Jayne and Leonie spent showing
the box, cards and tags in such detail.
I was so proud and I still have the show taped.
Does that mean I can now put  'as seen on TV ' on my card s! ? lol

So for those of you who missed the show,
firstly where were you??,
 only joking, here are the other 
pieces to the collection.

The box itself was made using a template
 and a medium thickness pink card.
I added ribbon around the rim of the lid ,sticking to the 
same colour ways to tie it all together.
The small flowers were stamped and coloured with Promarker's,
but the large flowers were from a My Craft Studio CD.



The backing papers were from a pad, as this collection  
didn,t come with a CD rom.
I then stamped and coloured each character with Promarker's
and added one to each side of the box.
Luckily it had six sides, as there are six lovely characters.

The same backing paper was used to create the inside tag pockets.



Here are four of the cards I made to go in the box,
one for each character .Don,t know why I didn,t take
a picture of them all !!

If I remember correctly I coloured 
everything with only five colours.

I had pictures of the tags too, but can,t seem to find that either.
I had used the smaller elements ,
 or worker stamps as Jayne calls them ,
 to put on the tags . They were just the right size.

Well I hope you like the box.
The cards look a bit basic looking back on them now,
 but I was still proud to see Jayne and Leonie 
show them on the TV, 
a very proud moment indeed!

So until tomorrow

Jens xxx
