Party boxes/cartons

Good Morning!

Thank you so much for all the get well messages.
It's lovely to be back!

Sorry I didn't get to post these wee boxes yesterday.
Just when I thought I'd got rid of the bug ... It came back with a vengance.
Thank goodness for anti-sickness tablets today :)

....and now my wee project.
It was Caleb's birthday nearly two weeks ago
and I made these cartons on the morning of his party in about 2 hours.


They were simply decorated so the children could colour in the pictures at home.
The images are from DigiStampBoutique and I printed and cut them out with the Cameo
(just in case you think I was mad enough to fussy cut them all) lol.
The cartons were also cut with the Cameo using a file bought from Silhouette America.


 They were filled with sweets and tied at the top with raffia.

I think I'll go and have a wee lie down on the sofa in the conservatory,
maybe the sunshine will help me recuperate!

Thank you for visiting today :)
and I'll be back tomorrow, all being well, with a card.
Take care,
Sarah xx

These bright boxes are fabulous for party favours and what a lovely idea for the children to be able to colour the picture in when they got home! Hope the sunshine helped you recuperate - fingers crossed we may get a bit more of it! Vicky x

Fantastic Sarah!! Fab idea to let the children colour the images themselves.

Glad you're feeling better now but take it easy!!
