After a very pear shaped few weeks I have finally managed to add my October theme to my dresser.
Halloween is not a favourite time for me, I am not a fan of bats and witches brooms!
October is our main “Birthday Month” so I have used some vintage Birthday postcards and boxes I have made and trimmed. They are empty at the moment, waiting to be filled with pressies!
This is how I made them
A pack of card from The Works cost only 99p
cut one sheet in half lengthwise ( I used the back of the breadboard to cut on)
score a line across the middle and then score from each end of this score line to the centre as in the pic above. Then punch a hole at each corner (if you have a double hole punch machine, do 4 single holes as the double ones are not the correct distance apart.
I rummaged around and found some scraps of hand made lace and ribbons from last years Bodyshop gifts! Thread the ribbons through the four holes and you have a triangular gift box.
The boxes are about 6″ tall – ideal for a small bottle of scent.
or a pair of deco earrings
a silk scarf..
a pretty bracelet…
a special key ring for car keys.
You can make these boxes easily and cheaply and decorate them with stickers buttons or toppers.
