Well, the sun shone yesterday all day long, probably trying to make up for lost time! It looks like it will be the same today!
I made these note boxes last week. Here in Germany, it is custom to take a *Mitbringsel* - a little present if you visit someone, and I thought these little boxes with stamped notes would do the job. I have tried to use cardstock and notes in coordinating colours. I have put about 100 notes in each box, and have stamped the top 20 or so. The tutorial for the box can be found here. I have taken 2 pics of each box, one from the front, and one from above. (Hmm, just in case you didn't fathom it out for yourself!)
Hope you all have a good day, and hope the sun is shining for you, too! Take care, and thanks for dropping in!
These are a great idea, and will make lovely presents! Love the variety of papers and stamps! Have a lovely day! SarahReplyDelete

The sun is shining here too yippee! Has been lovely since Monday but don't know how long it will last with the Olympic start up looming.

Hi Val, so happy to hear you are finally seeing some sunshine. We need rain badly, trying to sprinkle but a drop or two here and there isn't cutting it.ReplyDelete

Wonderful gift idea! And I love the stamps you've used.ReplyDelete
What a great idea and beautifully crafted, so much better than taking cake or flowers when you visit these are so pretty.ReplyDelete
I just love these - such thoughtful gifts and even more so because they're hand made - love the ribbon addition to each. Thanks for continuing to send good thoughts my way for my son.ReplyDelete
And, I'll let you in on a little secret - I don't actually turn 60 until Dec 21, but who wants to add another party to attend in Dec? So I had it now so we could have it outside - it was perfect! When I actually turn 60 I plan to do it with infinite style! :)
Lovely idea and they are just superb, when are you going to vist? LOL xxxReplyDelete
