1-2-3 little boxes

As I told ya'll yesterday, I was working on a pair of smaller barefoot sandals for my niece's birthday. It was actually on Monday but her party will be this Friday. The Chazman is excited about it because it's at an arcade and pizza joint. My sister laughs and calls it a casino for kiddos. *Gulp*...guess I better have lots of quarters ready!! Wait....Hold my 11 year old going to a casino before I ever even get to go to one. I guess he is and might be a good thing. I don't know if I could walk away from machines that promised me money!!

OK OK I'm getting way off what this post was suppose to be about.....hehe. So easily distracted I am. I was talking about Banana's gifts. I did get the sandals completed and added a bracelet and one of my shell necklaces too. I think she will be quiet happy with her grown up jewelry pieces.

I made some of my paper gift boxes to put each item in. I so love making these boxes. Remember that I posted a how to on these if you want to make some yourself. I cut these out so they could be stacked together and make a gift tower. The smallest one is 6 inches...the next 8 inches and the bottom 10 inches.
They are all tied together with some of the hemp rope and a tiny natural shell and gift card placed on top.

Now....we just have to patiently wait for Friday to get here. So happy that the Chazman looks at the calendar himself these days and I won't be hearing 24/7 "Is it time yet"??

Until next time...........Hugs,


  1. Loved this post. I went back and viewed your instructions to making the boxes and decided they might be a bit trying but I LOVE THEM. I also like how you showed how to do a pom-pom. I just never thought of making those. I can handle that!
