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

  11. Hi Patricia,
    oh these boxes are so pretty, and wonderfully made.
    Thank you for sharing her tutorial.
    I popped over to her blog and just realized I have just made one of her little Album Journals from one of her tutorials earlier this year.
    I just have to decorate it before showing it.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
