Pretty little things

I've had so many little people birthdays over the past week, that I have been making lots of these little boxes (this is my first girlie one!) as I think they are so nice to put sweeties in (just the right size for a couple of bags of buttons - this one has pink chocolate buttons from Thorntons!). It was nice to be able to really pretty things up a bit with some gorgeous paper (sweet treats - doodlebug design). I hand stitched around the birthday sentiment with red cotton to tie in with the red ribbon and backed it on to my corregated card. I threw the card together very late last night using a butterfly stamp design I'd coloured earlier. I was able to use the corregated card for punching out the flowers and as a background paper (I don't like throwing things away!).

On a completely different note, I had a lovely surprise this morning. My blogging buddy Lisa from has given me the Beautiful Blog award. I can't believe it, it's so exciting!!!! I've been visting Lisa's blog for a while now and she is so talented in many aspects of crafting, it's a pleasure to see (well worth a look if you haven't already been). So thank you Lisa, you've made my day, xxxxx.


  1. These are so cute......... Lacey will love them [so will Lacey's mum] I love the paper on the box - cupcakes and ice-cream - How Yummie!!!
