Welcome to April's blog hop I do hope you are enjoying the wonderful creations the team has done, they always blow me away with there designs, so grab a cuppa and have a good browse and comment on each blog post to win a great prize from Heartfelt Creations.

For my entry this month is a little bit different for me.
This can be done for a birthday, wedding, can you imagine new baby ones with little clay baby's inside and decorated with any of the wonderful flowers and leaves from Heartfelt Creations.
I was a tutor at a retreat last week and this is what I taught the ladies and they absolutely loved making this, just hope you do as well.
The ball is attached to the lid to make a double impact when you take it out, But it swings freely inside the box, but you can detach it to hang it from a stand after it has been gifted.
The box takes 6 pieces of A4 Card, I wont put the tutorial on here yet as I had to make the box to take the decorated ball, but if any one would like me to I will.

I used a plastic ball 12 cm, it comes in 2 half's
I put De'cor Diamante stones and a crystal heart inside closed the ball up and decorated it.
I used
Large Sweet Peony HCPC 3820
Large Sweet Peony die HCD1 7174
Small Sweet Peony HCPC 3819
Small Sweet Peony die HCD1 7173.
Heartfelt Creations Art Foam
I coloured the foam with oil Pastels to give a soft look to the beautiful Peony's.
Ribbon  pearls and due drops from my stash.

Thank you so much for popping in today, enjoy the rest of the hop.
Much love as always
