Thank you for coming in here to see what I have been up to!   I do appreciate your comments on what I do.  The Hamper met with approval.  Thank goodness I dread the day when someone wants these things changed, as unwrapping would be a pain.
Yesterday I sat and filled 80 after eight chocolate holders,I have to admit I felt slightly sick as I had eaten a couple while doing them - no ones fault but my own.  I then tied them up in 4 with some bakers twine.  I have a few more to do today for the fair tomorrow night.  If they don't sell it will mean a few less to make for going to the chemo unit.

Now I mentioned that I had made covers for the £1 size box of Maltessers?  Now bear in mind I didn't think this up. I had seen it on You Tube!   If you go on and put Maltesser box cover using your punch board it will come up with a few.  I used the one by Pootles, she has some brilliant makes using her envelope board.,,   Here is my ones.

Some of mine wrapped up 

They fit in nearly

Fold in and stick down with a bit of  Sellotape or even better one of the dots
I ran out of. 

A length of ribbon and a little sentiment that's it, a nice gift to hand over.

Now this the sentiment on this one isn't stuck down I will do one in the  Burgundy ink, this is just to show.

That's it for today. Go look on site or you tube the maltesser box.
Lots of great makes have fun, remember it's just a sheet of card or paper!

Good evening, sorry it's been a few days since I last posted.  I have been busy getting the things ready for the school Christmas fair.   I am getting there slowly.  Hopefully I will have it all done come Friday.    The thing is I am getting asked to do other things!  Like making up hampers and gift baskets.

The hamper above is one I was asked to make up. I was told what sort of things that was to be put in, thankfully they were OK.  I did add 2 of my 4 wrapoed up after eight holders just a little added extra.  It's not a very good photo of it wrapped the lighting is so poor at the moment.  That's it ready to be picked up.

I know what I as going to let you know!   The basket I used for this hamper came from B&M store you got the wicker basket ( it's light weight) the straw like stuff, cellophane a bow and a tag.  Really everything that you need.  I packed mine up underneath with tissue and of course put my own ribbon on it.   You got all that for £4.99 now I think that's a good price as I have paid  £15 for a basket before now, and at £4.99 it makes the gift hamper that bit cheaper, or you can put the £10 in to other goodies.

The other thing I have been up to is a paper wrapping for a £1 box of maltessers which I found on you tube. I will try and photograph them and put them up, it just transforms that little box of chocolates into a gift.

Thank you for all you kind comments on my little makes.  I just hope they sell.
Stay safe and warm.
