MAKE A BOX - MAY 2011

Post by Lorraine on Mon 25 Apr 2011 - 23:48

Your swap for May is to make a box and this time, it will be a direct swap.
When sign up is over (will have a date this time) I will send you your swap partner so you know who you're making for.
Any size and any shape (including purse/bag types) as long as you can put something in it - decorate how you want.

If any of you don't want to/can't make a box or are concerned about postage, just say and I'll change it.

Sign up by Monday 2nd May
Boxes to be POSTED on Monday 23rd May.

Signed up:
Lorraine - Done
Steph
Patty
Tina
Maria
Cynthia
Alison
Emma
Cath

Do we have to actually make a box, or can we decorate/alter
one ? Just a thought.

Mia, make a box like those you made at Christmas ... they are superb and not too heavy on the postage either!!! Save a cereal box to use for the packing!!! (There, lecture from Mumty is over now).

Whatever you made at Christmas sounds fine Maria. I always use bazzil cardstock for my boxes but cereal boxes are good too.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

oh go on then. I need the distraction.

I think mum means the cereal box for packaging it up in, not for actually making it in.

Think I will give this one a miss, Lorraine: would need to spend quite a bit of time on it and we have visitors, cricket and goodness knows what this coming month.
