Earlier this morning, I posted my video showing how to make a Book Box.
I've put a birthday greeting on the front so it can be used as a combined birthday card and gift box.
If I was to give this to someone as such, I'd decorate a gift bag to put the card box in.
If I had to post it, I'd put it in a postal box.
The size of the box is suitable to hold five or six A6 (A2) greeting cards and envelopes which would make a super gift.
When the cards have been used, the recipient has a nice box they can use for whatever.
When I made the video, I'd forgotten that our new 12" x 12" cardstock comes in each colour family, but just three of the colours.
I have suggested that Soft Sky can be used and have also suggested a Soft Sky Ribbon that will be ideal to go with it.
We're enjoying a heatwave here which started yesterday, the day of the Warlingham Village Fair!
The event was brilliant, very well attended and plenty of action going on in the arena.
On the down side, visitors weren't really in the mood to spend money, so our sales were poor.
For me, it's not all about instant sales.
I have two possible invitations for the future.
The first was from a lady who is starting a new venture where people can go to learn various crafts.
She has the venue sorted out, and now she's looking for teachers of various crafts, including cardmaking!
The second person who may get back to me is a lady whose daughter is getting married in September.
The lady and her two friends were really taken by two of my gift boxes, which they felt would be great as wedding favours!
Unfortunately, about half an hour from the fair closing, one of the stewards had an accident in the arena.
We don't have an details about what happened except to say he was hospitalised.
I wish you a very happy Sunday.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
