Just for You!!!

Hello everyone hope you are all well.  Thank you for all your comments on my last few posts. 
Without you popping in and leaving all your lovely comments none of this would be worth while. 
Our boys are home after an exciting few days camping.  What I can't get over is how much our DIL enjoys it all.  Audrey likes to be Glammed up and of course this camping lark needs her to be anything but!!!
Today's card was made for a friend, I have known for quite some time. 

Matting and layering Lidl card.
Design Paper from a Tilda 12x12 pad 
Felt roses made cutting a concentric circle and rolling
Seam binding ribbon, lace, pins and pearls all from my stash
Hand written Just for You

That's it for today
Thank you so much for your visit, I really appreciate every single one
Till next time

Little Boxes!!!

Hello Blog friends and followers, hope you have all had a good weekend.  All fine here although it was rather quiet, John, Audrey and the boys are off "camping" for a few days.  The boys finished school on Friday for their summer break, fingers crossed they get some good weather.  They are not having their BIG holiday till October, they have a few things lined up for the weeks the boys are off for summer.
I was trawling through Pinterest on Friday afternoon and found a brilliant Tutorial by  for little hexagonal boxes.  It is a very quick and easy, straight forward little box to make.  The bonus for me was I did not need to make a lid!!!  I have been making Hexagonal boxes and find getting the lids to fit properly a right pain.
When I make something for the first time be it one of my own designs or a Tutorial, I always make  one from just plain Bog Standard Card.  I never us my good card till I know it will work out.
Here are the boxes I made:-

These are all made from basic 250/300gsm card stock plus bits of card and paper from my Bit Box
They will hold 3 or 4 Nail Polishes.
I have done a Nail Polish & a Gel Coat with some tissue for a little gift I needed
They also hold a mini toothpaste, fold up toothbrush, a tube of moisturiser and a mini deodorant.
Great little gift for some one off on holiday.

Have a look on Pootles website she has some great tutorials for little boxes that are all so easy to follow.

That`s it for today 
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Have a great week
