Mrs Peachy Paper – The Pop Up Tag Box

Mrs Peachy Paper here doing the post today because I know she won’t have time to show what she made me into at the Tuesday Skype session with Irene unless I do it.  Finally, she got around to using me after buying me way back when.

Mrs C spent the night at her crafty friend’s house and has cancelled her class for today.  She’s off on one of her jolly crafting jaunts and the venue is nearer crafty friend’s house than hers.  I presume that means the kettle is on the go all day, cakes, sandwiches, laughter and lots of crafting!!!!

Can’t be a bad life if you ask me, not like all the forgotten crafty stash she has left behind gathering dust in all the far corners of her craft room.  Who knows what she will bring back with her and where is she going to put it????

Well as you remember Mr Box (here) did a post in July so this is one for the girls.

Whilst she was mooching through her hoarded stash I saw a smile alight upon her face when her fingers touched me.  (Give her credit, we might gather dust but she looks after us and she loves all her stash to bits.)  The thought entered my head that at last it was my turn to be transformed into something totally awesome.  You could say that I am predominantly peach (bordering on the orange shade) with brown images all over me, stunningly beautiful comes to mind.  Now I know I am only a piece of paper but she has transformed me into something that will proudly be displayed on her work desk.  What am I now you ask??

Mrs Peachy Paper transformed into a Pop Up Tag Box.

When I am opened, up pops a display of tags, very clever really.  The box is designed to house seven tags (more or less if you want) and the Sizzix Tag and Bookplates die is perfect for this.  Her next project is to design one that will house ATC’s.  Just love the way my box lid folds down flat then up jumps what’s hiding inside.  Neat eh!!!!

She has used other elements and papers but it is me … MRS PEACH … who is the main focal point on the box.

OK, stop crying stash, your time will come soon I promise!!!!

She made another pop up tag thingy about four years ago, see the link here – my how her style has changed!!!

Can you believe when I accessed her photo’s all she had taken was two and both of these are of one of the tags that goes inside.  If you look closely you can see me nestled behind the tag.  Mrs C and I will be having words when she gets home tonight!!!  This means that you will have to come back and see me another time.  Let’s hope Mrs C likes my post  😉
