Altered gift box (celebrating birth)

Hello all ! I have been crafting a little lately, but not enough to be able to publish another article sooner. But here I am !

It was my first round box and I was very excited at the beginning. Then my feelings changed : I became a bit more reluctant to the idea as I had absolutely no clue on how I would... [Lire la suite]
