Funky Hand Monthly challenge

The challenge on Funky Hand this month is a double - they want a Christmas project made using traditional colours (red/green) and a non-seasonal project using their seasonal papers.  I've chosen to make a pillow box and a birthday card using papers from Twelve Crafters Crafting.  The box was printed onto card using a template from their programme and the Santa label was made up using images from the digi section and cut out using a sizzix die.  The card used a star background paper and a textured plain one from the same CD - stars were cut using a Sizzix die with sentiment and numbers added to make a quick and simple birthday card.


  1. These makes are both wonderful. Thank you very much for joining in with the Get Funky Challenge this month, you're a star like your birthday card!

  3. YOur card is great with the stars on it and with matching background too...


  4. Hi Val a lovely card and pillowbox.Like the papers you have used. Hugs x ChrisB

  5. This would be anything but quick & simple if I tried. Love the doodling around the edge & your creative use of the star patterning. It certainly doesn't look like Christmas for the card but definitely does for the little box.

  9. Two gorgeous projects!!

    I love your birthday card very much and the little pillow box template is my favourite from the CD. It is going to be very useful over Christmas that's for sure .. .. just perfect for popping those awkward shaped little gifts into.

    Thank you for sharing with Get Funky!

    Love Jules xx
