Good afternoon, sorry I haven't been posting but between being busy and not having anything different to show I just had a little break.
Thank you for all your lovely comments I just love receiving them.
This afternoon I am showing the gift box and card I helped the girls make for there friend Madison who is having a birthday party at the weekend. They wanted to give her girls bits and to make a nice box to put them in. Also to make a card too. This is what we made.
The girls choose to give her nail polishes, nail art and lip balms, the box we made out of a 12x12 sheet of Lidl card, I gave the girls the two templates from the flat box that also came from one of the packs of boxes from Lidl. I showed them how to add a 3cms more on to the side height of the base they did this with on problem (good maths work) I showed them how to mark everything out then use the Huggie board to score, they made the lid to the exact size of the Lidl box but with a filled in front. I have to say I had to sit on my hands as I was so wanting to do it for them, but they did well not perfect but good enough to give to Madison. The card is 6x6 white card top with a piece again of off cut Lidl card, then Anna cut out one of the flowers of another piece of the same card then they added a few small beads. They did really well with this. Down side I left work and they went and used loads of my bits, stupid me for leaving my things behind.
Sorry I started this saying good afternoon, but couldn't up load my photos. Very much hair pulling out time. But I got there, thank goodness.
Well that's all for tonight, been a long day,
