Crafty Individuals cube...

A few weeks ago I landed myself what I call 'a rait bargeen' ( or a rather good deal to those that don't do, whats known in Brighton, as 'Norf-speak' (North-speak)...I'm a northerner living down south and you never lose that accent when a good deal is to be had lol. This bargain was a huge set of wooden blocks.

So on receiving the recent Crafty Individuals images to have a play with I took one of the blocks and turned it into something much prettier I felt.





oh...and this is how the block started out...
I have to admit, I do find the little bee rather cute heehee.



I thought this would suit this weeks Wednesday Stamper Open theme this week and the Small World of Inchies and Twinchies (as the block is a two inch cube and the starting place for this was actually the button on the top.)

Looks great Jo, where did you get the base blocks. Much nicer 'after' than 'before' I might add, even though you liked the bee :-)

beautifully decorated Jo. love the wire stemmed flower and somehow the way you've made it face downwards makes it look really cute.

This is gorgeous Jo!

Shannon said...

I agree Jo, there's nothing like a great bargin, especialy when it comes to art supplies, because we all know how expensive those can be and how much we all spend on them.

I have these Crafty Individuals stamps and I love them. Of course I love all Crafty Individual products. But I really like this cube you made with them, ingenius idea.

You never fail to inspire.
