Dragons Lair design inspiration- Francheska

This month at Dragons Lair designs we are using the lovely new Francheska papers and embellishments. Find the store here to check it out for yourself
Here :-  and you can join in chat, challenges and more on the FB page to be found here :-

I decided to make some pretty pillow boxes for gifts like jewellery or gift tokens with a matching card. I hope you like them

i started off printing off all the pretty things i needed from the Francheska range. i chose a pillow box
die, but there are lots of templates on the web for these sorts of boxes bags etc.

 as you can see on the photo above, I decided to emboss one of the boxes with a Tim Holtz folder
as it had some letters and numbers on it and sort of complimented the Bingo image in the Franchesca toppers. See photo below for some of the lovely things you can download and print off. just a bit of cutting out and patience makes a great project all hand made.

Here below is the matching card, lots of distressing on the edges and inking with brown ink

 finally a photo of the little boxes all on their own.


  1. This is a wonderful set you should be proud of! Beautiful and useful - it's a winner! ;) xx

  3. Fantastic little pillow boxes! I must check out that die!
    Great card too!
