It’s my birthday today! I am such a kiddie when it comes to birthdays, particularly my own, and I love sharing it wherever I can! My lovely boys tend to buy my edible gifts – they like to ‘help’ me enjoy them. And that’s ok by me! I’m writing in advance so I’ve no idea what they’ve bought for me, but I know I’ll be very happy with everything! And in the sharing spirit, I have a little giveaway to share too. More details at the bottom!
My youngest son Oliver is 5 years old and he’s the biggest crafter in my house besides me. And he loves making boxes and packages of treats. We were inundated with pretty boxes in the run up to Christmas! And he knew my birthday was coming up, so he asked me to make a box so he could put a treat inside it for me. Bless his little heart!
So he chose the colour and the stamp set and twine, and asked me to make a square box. I did, having no idea what he was going to be putting inside, but it turned out to be a perfect fit for a Yankee Candle votive! I have a set of drawers with lots of things inside that I use as inspiration and one drawer is entirely devoted to candles of many sizes. So he rummaged about and found the lovely Raspberry one. I haven’t got a photo of his box here unfortunately (he took it back off me!) but you will see it in the video!!
Once he’d made it and stamped it, he asked me to put it in a video for you all! So a little modification on the closure and inspiration further taken from his ‘fruity’ candle choice and I made the box that you’ll see in the video.
I had fun stamping my own cardstock and it is always nice to create our own designs. Fresh Fruit made this very easy, so that’s why I’m giving away a stamp set to everyone who places an order over £100 (€120) in my online shop today (Monday March 13th 2017 from midnight to midnight). However, I am also giving away a pack of the Bow Paperclips to everyone who places an order over £50 (€60) too. I can take orders only from the 5 following countries – The UK, Germany, France, Austria, The Netherlands. And this is a gift from me to you! I’ll order in the stamps and gifts tomorrow and send them on ASAP!

Score on the LONG side at 2, 4, 6, 8″ (5, 10, 15, 20cm)
