About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Paper box

Good Morning All

I saw these gorgeous paper boxes on Patricias blog the other day and she told me that she followed a tutorial on Christinas blog HERE.



 I did not have any two sided paper large enough so that is why the sides are white.

I went over the top decorating the lid but totally enjoyed doing it!!!!


USED

Lace and ribbon from stash.
Peeloff butterflies on acetate.
Homemade bead pins.
Crochet flowers and heart.
Cheery Lynn Roses die.




Shows the inside.

  5. Wendy these boxes are great and so easy to make, I am not a card maker and I just love making these, I have put mini products in a few and I made one in baby card and managed to fit in a small bib, a burp cloth and a pair of socks. Made a small but lovely useful gift for a new baby.
