Paper pack storage and stash haul

Hi all,nearly forgot to add my project from the last Bristol craft meet. It's always a good day,lots of laughter,great company, food and even some crafting lol.
We had the choice to make a 6 x 6 paper pack holder or a 8 x 8 paper holder and these can be easily adjusted for another size or hold maybe embossing folders.








Ingredients used - mount board,gum tape (amazing stuff and better than wet glue) acrylic paint, papermania papers and ribbon stolen from Angie
This one is a gift and am now making one for father in law to keep by his phone for all his bits of paper, bills etc.
There is a tutorial hereand Sue kindly tweaked it and made a PDF which made it a dream to make.




Thought you might like to see my recent craft shopping but now need to be good and save for the Taunton show. Stash was brought at the Range, Joanna Sheen, (lotv stamp friend picked up at Ally Pally for me) and Mymumscraftshop which has just reopened. Looking forward to going back there as fell in love with the funny stamps (yellow packaging in pic) she stocks from America.




And lastly this is a desk (fab bargain) I picked up on the way home for the amazing price of £10 and its in excellent condition. In main bedroom for now and waiting to go in craft room to use for cricut machine etc when bed goes but son has already got his eye on it for his room lol.
Right off to finish the housework and then some crafting.x
