This was very much trial and error. I purchased a pine box, wadded and covered the lid with Laura Ashley check material (you'll often find me rummaging in the Laura Ashley material box in Beccles!)
I made a ribbon rosette, beaded his name and painted and stamped a "Keepsake" tag and was fairly happy with the end result.
Inspired, I owe a close friend a 40th Birthday present still, so made a similar one for her....
I love this and so want to keep this for myself!
So now to my next project -
having moved the computer downstairs
I now have a spare bedroom for crafting
Ohhhhhhhh..........where to start ?
