About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Home made gift box full of surprises.

Home made cards and gifts say so much more to the receiver. You know it wasn't a case of "I just ran out to the shops 5 minutes before I came and grabbed something for your birthday". (We've all been there, done that!)

Here is a special box, completely hand made, given to me for my birthday by Elly.

It had all the good qualities of a gift...
It looked super nice.
It was hand made just for me, which is so special.
It had a sense of mystery as I opened it.
It felt luxurious untying the satin ribbon as opposed to picking at sticky tape.
It contained a surprise.... the little 'drawers' opened up, each containing a little envelope which also had a surprise in it!
 AND.... there was chocolate in each section!

Thanks Elly! It's lovely to have a well thought out gift that is an event in itself to open :)

(El... do you have a link for how to make this one?)

    I have changed the measurement to fit my paper.
    Happy crafting Elly.


I LOVE to have your comments and will try to answer questions as best I can.
