A little more work, I´ve managed to finish here.

I have managed to get a little more work done here lately, even I know, it haven´t been too much thoug.
A little while ago, I saw something like this on a blog, sorry I just can´t remember, who´s it was, and she had explained pretty well, how it was made, and as I thought, it looked really nice, I decided to give it a try too, and this is, what I got out of my try on this.

Det er da lykkedes mig at få lidt lavet her på det sidste, selv om jeg godt ved, at det ikke har været meget, må jeg nok desværre indrømme.
For nogen tid siden, så jeg noget lignende denne her på en eller anden blog, som jeg med skam må indrømme, jeg bare ikke kan huske hvis var, men hun havde i hvert fald forklaret ret godt, hvordan hun havde lavet den, og jeg kunne rigtig godt lide den, så besluttede at gøre et forsøg, og det her er så, hvad der kom ud af det. Håber I kan lí den.
 Front of the box, which is closed with a ribbon, I´ve glued around it and added an eyelet to and a tiny buckle in the other end, that is actually one I found in one of my mum´s old boxes, that I inheritaged, when she dies, and I can still remember, that it´s from my babysisters very old fine shoes, when she was maybe 3 or so, so it was a bit fun to reuse these too.
Fronten af æsken, som blir lukket med et bånd, der er limet rundt om, og isat en eyelet i den ene ende og et lille spænde, jeg faktisk fandt i en af min mors efterladte bokse, som jeg arvede, da hun døde, og jeg kan stadig huske, at det er fra min lillesøsters fine sko, fra hun var omkring 3 år gammel, så det var lidt sjovt at genbruge det.
 This is the box half opened. / Her er æsken halvt åbnet op.
 And here it´s all opened up, so you can see the paper I used in the bottom f it.
Og her er den helt åbnet op, så I kan se det flotte papir, der er brugt i bunden af den.
 And here´s the front shown at an angle. I haven´t decorated it too much, only with a little flowers, as I thought the paper, which is from Pion, was sooo decorative, that it didn´t need a lot more embellisment on it.
Og her er fronten så vist fra siden. Jeg har ikke dekoreret den særlig meget, ud over lidt blomster, da jeg faktisk syntes at de flotte papirer fra Pion er så flotte i sig selv, at de ikke behøver en masse mere.

Maybe you can all remember, I got all these folding dies from Nellie Snellen for my birthday? Here´s one thing, that I have made with one of them.  It´s originally meant to be for a christmas ornament, but I saw something like this on the fair, I went to a few weeks ago, and was pretty impressed by it, so I got pretty pleased, when I found out, that I got this die. But boy if I could remember, how it was folded, when I saw that at the fair, so it took quite a few trials, before I finally managed to make one, that looked at least like the one I saw, cause I´m still not sure, it´s done the same way, but it worked okay for me thoug, and I think, it was a great idea to make these tealight holders with it, and it makes it easy to make the decor fit any party you may create for, without too big costs to make some new ones next time LOL.

Måske kan I huske, at jeg fik denne die here fra Nellie Snellen i fødselsdagsgave? Her er så én ting, jeg har fået lavet med den. Den er egentlig beregnet til at lave ornamenter med til jul, men jeg så noget som det her, da vi var nede på messen i Viborg her for et par uger siden, hvilket jeg var ret imponeret over, så jeg blev ret glad, da jeg så, at den die var mellem mine gaver der. Men tror I så, at jeg kunne huske, hvordan den var foldet, som jeg havde set, selv om jeg havde stået og vendt den 100 gange LOL, så det tog godt nok et par forsøg, før det endelig luykkedes mig, at få noget, der bare lignede, for jeg er stadig ikke sikker på, at det er den rigtige måde, men pyt med det, for det her virker for mig, og det er det vigtigste, og jeg synes stadig, det var ret cool, at lave en lille lysestage ud af det også. Jeg elsker bare når jeg kan få mere ud af en ting end først antaget, så det er bare cool. Og det gør det nemt at lave noget til enhver fest, der bare passer helt ind i resten af borddækningen uden det behøver koste en formue, og man laver bare nogle nye næste gang.
 Here´s the die next to the tealight holders. / Her er ddien ved siden af lysestagerne.
 Seen close up from the side, how it´s folded./ Set tæt på fra siden, hvordan jeg har foldet den.

 And seen from above, with a tealight in there. / Og set fra oven med et lys i dem.

The last one here is a card, that my son came and asked me to make wednesday night last week. It had to be made especially for his girlfriends cousin and his fiance, who both turned 30, and who had wished for money to help pay for a trip, they´re going on to Australia here in a couple of month, instead of a gift, so the card should have room to add the money and it should show an Australian theme. And by the way, then they needed it to be ready saturday morning, when they had to leave for the party, that was in the other end of our country LOL. So it didn´t leave me too much time to think out anything too complicated, so this is what I came up with here:

Det sidste her er et kort, som min søn kom og bestilte onsdag aften i sidste uge. Det skulle laves specielt ti hans kærestes fætter og hans kæreste, som begge blev 30. De havde ønsket sig penge til hjælp til en rejse til Australien, de skulle på om et par måneder, i stedet for gaver, så kortet skulle have plads til at indeholde nogle penge, og det skulle meget gerne há et Australs tema over sig, og så skulle det forresten gerne lige være færdigt senest lørdag morgen, hvor de skulle køre til festen, som blev holdt helt ovre på Sjælland ved Køge, så det levnede ikke ligefrem oceaner af tid, til at udtænke noget alt for kompliceret, så det her, er hvad jeg lige kunne komme op med:
 The front of the card, is a wordmap, I found on the internet, where I added a small diecut flyingmachine on a dottet line to show the route between Denmark and Australia, A picture of the Sydney Operahouse, that is designed and build of a Danish designer many years ago, and a couplde more pics, also found on the internet ofcause.
Fronten på kortet er et verdenskort, som er fundet online, og hvorpå der er dottet en linie mellem Danmark og Australien og tilføjet en lille diecut flyver og nogle billeder fra Australien bl.a. Sydney Operahus, som jo er designet og bygget af en dansker, som vi alle ved her.
 The inside of the card is decorated with some different items, that symbolized all their demands and an envelope to hold the money in it, and below a writingfield for the note, and a bit more small diecuts and flowers.
Indeni kortet er det dekoreret med forskellige ting, som igen symboliserer de krav, som de havde lagt og en lille kuvert til at holde pengene. Og nederst er der lavet et skrivefelt og omkranset af flere små die cuts og blomster.
 The upper half of the inside close up./ Øverste halvdel af det indeni tæt på.
 Lower part of the inside close up./ Nederste halvdel af det indeni tæt på.
Og selvfølgelig mit personlige stempel på bagsiden, så de kan se, hvem der har lavet det
And ofcause my personalized stamp on the back, so they know, who made it for them.

That´s all I have for you today dear friends, I hope, you´ll let me know, what you think and will enjoy to watch my work here again.
Have a wonderful day everyone and lots of great fun til we meet again next time. Take good care.

Det var alt, jeg havde at vise jer idag kære venner. Jeg håber, I vil lade mig vide, hvad I mener om det hele og vil nyde at se, hvad jeg har lavet.
Have a dejlig dag alle sammen og masser af sjov til vi ses igen næste gang. Pas godt på jer selv derude i den store verden.
