Birthday Bag

Good evening all, just a quick post tonight as I have a really busy weekend planned and probably won't find much time to blog. I have had an exhausting past few weeks and today I booked a family holiday to Pembrokeshire , what with the kid's chicken pox aswell, I think we all could do with a little R&R. We're not going until next weekend however there is so much to organise when you holiday with little ones, isn't there?!. I usually take anything and everything I can lay my hands on, just in case!!!! Anyway, just wanted to show you another one of my gable boxes. I found the template at the back of a crafting magazine and it is now one of my firm favourites. It's so easy to alter the dimensions too to make it wider or taller, (if you're really organised and know what you want to put it in before you make it!). I love using core-dination card to make them as it is so sturdy.

I also discovered a more inventive way of tying the box. The button acts as a stopper on the left side, with the ribbon pulled across the back, then looped through the right hand side and tied as a bow (are you following....?!!!). Anyway, have a great weekend whatever you're doing.

Love Jane xxxx

  5. Hi Jane. Thank you so much for the lovely comments you left me while I was away. I really appreciated them. I know I'm a bad blogger by not saying I was on holiday, just a bit superstitious I suppose. Anyway, I know how to schedule posts for next time!!
    It sounds like you've been having a busy time lately. I just loved Maisie doing her scrapbooking, that's something for you to scrapbook to show her when she's older!!!! I love it when they want to join in.
    Enjoy your coming holiday, sounds like you definitely deserve it and have a great bank holiday weekend whatever the weather.


  6. Hey Jane you clever thing! I LOVE the idea of the unique fastening to your box - just so sweet! Your box is gorgeous too - good job it's easy to alter as whenever I make anything my present never fits in 'em LOL!
