Present for My Sister’s 50th Birthday

Picture 094
When my sister and I were looking around a very expensive shop in Manchester before Christmas we saw some  “tool boxes” full of retro sweets, but they cost stupid money!

….. But I liked the idea and kept it in mind, so when I saw these boxes in a Poundshop recently I just had to buy a few to keep for an appropriate moment. The appropriate moment has come.
I got a variety of sweets and sealed them in small cello bags using my bag sealer so that  each packet  fitted the compartments exactly.

I then decorated the outside of the box using self adhesive alphabet letters and punched flowers.

FAB idea!!! and I bet you have made it for a third of the price you saw it for? Your sister will love it, and of course it's hand made which makes it even more special. Wonderful!!!
