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

Ribbon & Bow

Good Morning All

It is time for the Allsorts Challenge again and the theme this week has been set by Helene and it is Ribbon & Bow so this is a good one for most people I think.

I chose an image form one of the sponsors and coloured with Promarkers.

Then I pondered what to do with it Mmmmmmm.

I decided on something abit different for me and this was after seeing John Next Doors post here on how to make this style of box.  Made from acetate and a couple of pieces of A4 card, EK border punch and a Spellbinders Octagon die.  I found it easier using the red DST instead of a wet glue.

Incase you are wondering, inside is a baby talc and a sponge.

My box is octagonol  instead of hexagonal because I did not have a suitable die.

It took abit of fiddling about but I managed it quite well I think.   I am not too good at measuring and following instructions very closely, I tend to look at something and think,mmm I,ll do it like this........

This is it before putting the image on and putting goods inside.

You could use as a gift box for anyone really and put Body lotion or shower gel inside, or candles or chocolates mmmmmm.

The sponsors this week are ....

Passion for Stamps   will give a winner 4 images of choice.

              And    Ribbon Girl

  1. An absolutely brilliant idea.
    If my sister Hazel (Hazel's baskets of Joy) sees this she will have me on a mission to show her how to do. This is right up her street.
    Thank goodness she is still on holiday.
    Have a great weekend Wendy
