"Little Boxes"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who pressed a wrong button and landed here.  Welcome to my Blog, hope you like what you see, leave a comment and call again real soon.  If you leave a comment I can get back to your Blog to see what you get up to.  If you don`t have a Blog thank you anyway I really love that you come to visit me.
Steph:-  The size of the bags on my previous post are:- 81/2 inches High including the handle, 5 inches Wide and 3 inches Deep.  The Die is an XCut Die which I got at:-http://www.hixxysoft.com/
don`t know if they still have them at £19.99 P&P Free, I got mine early last year.  You need 2 sheets of A4 card for each bag.  It is a big Die, the results are great, I love making and decorating them.
Here are a few boxes that I made over the weekend:-

The small boxes are approx 2x3 inches
Crafters Companion A3 Card for all the boxes
I used a left over Peonie on one of the small boxes.    Lots of tiny flowers from Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms Die on the other.
Bigger box is approx 2x4inches.  I used HC Arianna Blooms for that as well, there is mixture of big and small flowers Dies in the set.  SB and Sue Wilson Dies for the leaves.
Little scraps of net and a couple of Stick Pins for extra decoration
Butterflies are leftovers from another set of boxes I made.  I will show them by the end of the week.
Closeup of the top of the Big Box:-

Yesterday it took me ages to price all the things.  I never know what to charge for the things I make.  Things that I think I have priced at a reasonable price I get feedback that they are expensive.  Others just go, it a real funny world out there!!!!  I am off along to the Tearoom later to clear out everything that is the cabinet and completely re-stock.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in, I really appreciate it
Till next time

  25. Hi Patricia
    Sorry for the delay but trying to rest my arm in between shifts.
    Your boxes are delightful and that flower is marvellous.
    I don't think folk buying handmade things, factor in the time it takes when they say its too expensive.
    Best wishes.
