65th birthday

I wanted to do something special for my father-in-law’s 65th birthday so I made a tool box out of an old wine box and a tube from the centre of a kitchen roll all covered in black acrylic paint.  We put his presents and cards in the box and I made some tags so all the family could write a special birthday message for him.

For the card I used a section of map covering the area where my father-in-law lives together with a paper pieced car and I think I got away with the slightly cheeky greeting!

Hope you like it!




Housewarming present

I made this gift box to hold the goodies for my friends’ housewarming BBQ.  I cut up an old packaging box for the base and covered it with Fancy Pants My Family papers.
