A bit of a bargain - some altering

I popped into Robert Dyas for some batteries......and saw these packs of ready to assemble gift boxes.........it was the red that caught my eye.......they must be useful for christmas I thought.....so I bought 2 packs.
And they were.......4 boxes in each pack......I used some aqua card.......and the last 3 pieces of my Bo Bunny 'tis the season' papers.......sigh......I love this paper.......why don't they still make it??





An assortment of my little bargain Tesco 'embellishments'.......stuck on with a glue gun.......some aqua and red ribbons.......and voila.......some little christmas boxes that just need a small gift popped inside.......and some ribbon to tie them at the top.

I just wish I'd bought more.......when I returned today........all sold.

Now that IS what I call a bargain. They look brilliant Jackie. Well worth the last of those BB papers. Lx

Those boxes are just amazing - such a talent you have a) for spotting a bargain and b) for making them so pretty.

Beyond impressive! It just goes to show that with a little scrap paper the world is your oyster!

Very nifty! We don't have Robert Dyas here - and The Accountant always loves a look when we are over your way. It's his favourite shop.
