Sam’s Oriental Vases

Last year one of my fellow Pootler’s Anne Melvin made a beautiful Oriental Style gift box.

I loved it so much I made one for my Mother-In-Law but instead of making it as a gift box I made it into a vase and put red silk roses in it.

J20 Lip Balm Boxes

When I was shopping with Kayleigh a few weeks ago I bought some J20 Lip Balms in B&M for us to try.

I enjoy a J20 every now and then and when we have a night out it’s my preferred drink as I’m allergic to alcohol.

Cute Panda Lolly Box

While I was shopping at my local Co-Op I spotted some Panda Chocolate lolly’s and I immediately thought of the Party Panda’s Stamp Set.

As soon as I got home I put the shopping away, made a large coffee then went to my craftroom to work on a box for this cute lolly.  I went through my cardstock to find colours that closely matched the lolly and decided on Very Vanilla and Early Espresso.
