Isn’t it lovely to stock up on one’s craft supplies? I must admit that our store of crafty items was looking rather sad, so a visit to the scrapbook and material shop was certainly enjoyed by us older girls last Monday morning.
I have been going through so many craft magazines lately in an attempt to find simple, cost effective things to try not only for this challenge but also to keep us busy on the rainy days when we can’t be outside.
I also have plenty of Christmas cards to begin making – there are so many lovely designs I can’t wait to try. Plus we were very inspired in our gift making by looking at all the beautiful things available in the shops:-)
But this week I’d like to show you these adorable little gift boxes I made...
I love making gift boxes – I love tracing, folding and filling them. And these cute ones from Ideas were just delightful to put together. You can find the template and instructions in the March 2013 edition of Ideas magazine.
Now I must just add that the reason behind my lack of blogging has not been because of lack of interest. We have just had a few minor internet issues which are now hopefully sorted out for a while! I hope you’ve enjoyed the sudden burst of thoughts that have been shared all in one go, though – I have been saving them up specially!
P.S. How does everyone like my new design?
