Well a couple of weeks ago I promised to share something special with you. I recently met a lovely lady who is a nurse, and has been studying to pass some exams, and having worked in a surgery, I understand how hard working, and beneficial nurses are to an everyday working surgery life, as well as being so important to the patients themselves. When I discovered that she was adding more strings to her bow, I had nothing but admiration for her, as working hours are long, and sometimes nurses get the raw end of the deal. To celebrate her achievement, I wanted to give her something special and to let her know how proud she should feel, and to top it all, it turned out she’s a crafter too!
Well I wanted to experiment with an idea, so this is what I came up with. It appears as nothing more than one of those fold flat to post boxes, and you are right, with some colourful characters thrown in to celebrate the occasions, and these are a mix of Lawn Fawn Critters in the Sea, Scripty Sayings and Mama Elephant Whale Wishes.
The box I calculated and made myself as I wanted something a little bit bigger than the Spellbinders Box Die and I cut the edges with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders. Now I agree this is nothing special but, it’s what you can’t see that I am so pleased with….just lift the front flap and…….
I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to see what is under the sea too? So the scene was created for all the colourful creatures that we don’t get to see above the water, and the bottom of the box becomes a whole new world, making use of all that wasted space!
I shall leave you to decide what you think, all I know is I couldn’t find anything else quite like it, hence why it is the special box.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and the lovely sunshine today.
