What’s On My Desk Wednesday

I am trying to economise as I seem to have had made a few expensive purchases this month …. so to get a shopping “fix” I  have been over to the local papershop, where the gentleman takes off the free gifts from the unsold comics and sells them for 30p each, there are some real treasures if you rummage around enough!

I got this tool kit to embellish some of my sweetie filled toolboxes – five men's embellishments for 30p? Brilliant!

And this 30p bargain was even better than I anticipated when I opened the box.  I thought the pieces would be flat and the cars printed on them, but I found that there were little foam cars stuck on the strips of road ….

So, I made a tiny gift box for learner driver who has just passed their driving test …… I’ll put a few car shaped sweeties inside the box to follow the theme through.

The L plates are table confetti.

I know it’s daft but its cute as well!

I have a couple more ideas for these “dominoes”,  I just need the time!
