Thank you for your visit and comments on my "oldie for Friday" Since telling you about "Robert and his socks" I have discovered that I obviously don`t get out enough.........this is a fashion amongst the young ones......wearing odd socks, not by accident!!!! I am also hearing, since the World Cup they are even going into wearing same shoe style but two different colours. (that can only be good for business) Some footballers were wearing Puma boots and that`s how they come in the box one orange and one turquoise.
Yesterday Hazel, Elaine and I went to Perth to meet up with Kate (culliesocks) who came down from Inverness (a 2 hour bus trip for Kate) We did not have long but boy! we packed a great amount of chat and laughter into that time. The 3 of us are hoping to get up to Inverness before November, time seems to go so quickly. We all have a few things in the pipeline, it might not be achievable, we will see. However we will be together in November for our trip to NEC in Birmingham.
My offering for today is an "Origami Gift Box" you can find a wonderful easy to follow Tutorial here:-
http://flowersribbonsandpearls.blogspot.co.uk You will find a link for Video Tutorials on the left of Christina`s Blog page. The Tutorial is headed Origami Gift Box. Once you have made one you are up and running, there are so many wonderful things you can do with this box.
They say Paper Stack but it is more card than paper approx 220gsm I think
SB Blossom Five for the Roses
SB Butterfly Die
Foliage Crealies Die
Ribbon, lace and pearls all from my stash
I make lots of these boxes, fill them with "homemade" Chocolate Truffles & Scottish Tablet
I keep thinking about the expression of pleasure on Sue Wilson`s face when she was asking about the Scottish Tablet.
Hazel and I had made and given Sue one of these boxes. Julia a Gift Bag filled with treats when we met them in Aberdeen.
That`s it for today folks I am going over to meet Hazel. The Craft Shop near her is having a Demo Day with Crafters Companion. Off to see what is on offer and support Adrian the shop owner.
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
