Like this tin for keeping an emergency stash of chocolate digestives in, bought for the computer boffin at work as a thank you for always sorting out all my computer glitches with a smile and a laugh. When he said that chocolate digestives were the best biscuit in the world, this tin was a no brainer (£2 from HobbyCraft) and I filled it up for him!
Two packs of 12 wooden hearts (HobbyCraft reduced from £3 to £2.25), perfect for covering with Nordic Christmas patterned paper, a lick of varnish and a bow … as a quick Christmas tree fairing.
Still in HobbyCraft …… but this didn’t fall into my basket, priced at £15, I am praying that they will be included in a 3 for 2 offer nearer Christmas, then I might just pounce!
Packs of stickers for £1 each, no immediate plans for them, but I feel a couple of tags or cards are in the making.
Halloween stickers are of a premium this year, especially for someone like me who uses a lot of them for tags and boxes. Love the spiders, but not so keen on the pack of ghosts that came with them.
The pack of 120 paper chains for £1 to use as an edging to a tag or card or as a band round a Halloween box also seemed like money well spent. The Halloween party bags (20 for £2) will also be useful for a very quick bit of spooky nonsense …. I plan to fill them with sweets and then add an big orange ribbon and tag, perhaps also featuring a skeleton or two to keep with the theme.
You can’t have enough wiggly eyes at this time of year either and for a pack of this size for just 79p it’s a no brainer ….. from Home Bargains.
