photo gift idea

I haven't done much over the last few days due to having the bug which is going round , so with no sewing to show you im going to show you a great little gift idea, this is made from one of those plastic storage box's , the buisness card size.
First cover the box in some scrapbooking paper, lightly sand the edges and apply some mod podge, which is like a pva glue for extra protection. Then add your embelishments to the top.
I used a chipboard F painted in red, for family.




then inside its just playing cards which have been covered using more scrapbooking papers of your choice, adding the ribbon to alternate through the cards so they fold out.

Add pics of your family or a special occasion and add other embelishments as you go along

Makes a great little gift
Will be back with more sewing as soon as i can shake this cold off.

Hey honey,
Hope you feel better soon. Love the gift idea, very clever.
I use the business card boxes as little storage holders. They are very handy.

Get well soon hugs.
