It’s funny how one idea triggers of another … I was thinking about the end of the school year when I make small and quirky, inexpensive gifts with a holiday theme for some of my colleagues
This bag of jelly babies was my first idea, but it just looked very naff and boring!
Then, I remembered a matchbox template I had downloaded for my Quickutz silhouette ages ago (sorry I can’t remember where from). I had to jiggle the template about a bit, but eventually cut out the bottom and the cover. I made the handle separately, by hand, with a bit of trial and error.
Putting it together didn’t take very long at all, I just added a bit of faux stitching and a couple of corner peel offs. The handle is attached with small coloured brads.
The tag was made using the Stampin Up jewellery tag 117190 - £8.50 and available from my friend Lisa (see Stampin Up link)
I am not sure what sort of sweets I am going to put in the box … obviously they can’t be too big.
I thought I would cut out a small piece of map to line the bottom of the compartment and also pop in a hand written note saying “ We’re all going on a summer holiday” etc. …..
