I can now reveal………………………

That I was chosen to be the Guest Designer at Little Scrapbook Shop this weekend for the July Cybercrop.

I was just a LITTLE bit excited when asked. Our challenge was to use “idioms”. My first challenge was to find out what an idiom as – thanks to my friend “google” I discovered what they were and started working on some ideas.

I created an OTP – a Cake Slice Box. I also wanted to do some cards so I made a set of triangular cards to fit inside the box.

The template can be found here http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/images/cakebox.gif

I enlarged it to fit A4 and printed it on the reverse side of the pink cardstock. I printed an extra copy of the template onto plain photocopy paper. I cut the two triangles out as templates for my cake slice topper and then cut the other one slightly smaller for the template for my cards. (Make sure to measure the card before going ahead – it has to fit nicely inside the box)

Here are my creations.

You can see in the shots I have shown a picture of the cards inside the box.

On the inside of the cherry card it reads “just a bowl of cherries”

Thanks for looking.
