What’s On Your Workdesk Wedne{Tue}sday

It would seem I am ahead of the game. Not something you’ll hear very often from me.

P1030185

I taught a class in Mere this morning and after lunch I settled down to make some boxes. All the supplies were together so it made sense to use them before putting away again.

P1030200

You can’t see from the angle I chose to photograph, but it’s a two part box. The inner ‘drawer’ is made from kraft cardstock and it’s sized to hold three tea lights.

I’m going rogue this week and posting early. It’s OK, Julia said I could.

Hoping I have broken my bloggers block now and aiming to be back real soon.

Really love your box and I have to own up and say I'm being a rebel too and have posted a day early [my wednesdays are so hectic each week playing catch up].
Hugs,

Wow! What a beautiful box. Smaller than I pictured it, if it holds three tea lights, but perfect for small gifts. Happy WOYWW from #7.

From your picture I thought it was a big box so was surprised when you said it fitted three t lights! Nice though

Love that box and tag. Happy crafting #49

Danie May said...

Such a beautiful box and I agree it's best to use up and put things together when they are out, then to file them away and forget about them. Have a great week! Danie #54

Oh wow, that box is beautiful and what a good idea to put waxine-candles in it... that makes a great present! I'm going to make a note and keep it in mind - thanks for the inspiration!! Happy woyww and a hug from - rainy - Holland. Marit #92

Sian said...

The box looks lovely - and with the candles in it? would make a great fund raiser on a Christmas stall.

I've been patchworking this morning (until the sewing machine packed in. I hope my technical support will be home from work early tonight..)

Julia Dunnit said...

I felt like a right old rebel two face when I I posted yesterday, but just knew that the schedule thingy wouldn't work if I trusted it to! love the box and the workings out you did for it, and the butterfly tag idea, such a lovely way to offer a gift.

The Taming of the Glue said...

That is such a fantastic box, I love it. A really useful size too. If you've got the dimensions, I'd love to have them. I see you keep a notebook with projects too! Hugs. Pam#68

Sandy Leigh said...

Such pretty blues with your gorgeous box! Now that I've made envelopes, boxes are next on my list. Thank you for your sweet visit. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #9

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What a pretty blue box. I'm impressed with how nice and crisp people can get gift boxes to come out. When I do them they look like they were made by a spastic child. Nice to use your supplies while they were out and before they got buried by the next project, or does that only happen to me?

Your boxes are always so cute - I would be more excited to get one of your boxes than I would be about any gift inside LOL!!
