I have just completed a swap which needs the items to be sent off to 2 different homes in
America. I can't show you what I have made yet but I can let you see the boxes that I made to transport them in. I didn't have any suitable packaging so decide to make my own. These have been made from odds of cardboard cut to size and then each piece covered in fabric and then sewn together into a box shape with a lid that closes with ribbon ties .
The tops of the boxes have each been decorated with bits of ribbon ,broken jewellery and a shrink plastic heart button, coloured with promarkers to match the ribbon and material.
View of the sides showing the complimentary material used on the ends and the same on the base. The inside has been padded on the bottom.
As I have used up snippets of ribbon, jewellery and shrink plastic for the 'Wally buttons' am entering this into Pixies Crafty Snippets
Also into 1st Unique Gifts: Handmade Monday.
