We’re back, relaxed and refreshed from a week in sunny Kos and not looking forward to work in the morning!
Luckily, I had something lovely to look forward to, as I received an exciting package from Jennysis Crafts. Jenny very kindly sent a number of us crafty bloggers a ‘Crafty What Nots’ box to review in anticipation of her fantastic new venture – a craft box subscription service.
The box actually arrived in the post the day before I went on holiday, but I knew I didn’t have enough time to start, so, tempted though I was to have a sneaky peek, I left it waiting for me to come back!
I was really excited to open up the box as I had no idea what would be inside, the only clue I had was it’s name ‘Floral Pavilion’.
After carefully opening the tissue paper and removing the contents of various little personalised envelopes, this is what I found. For a slim box, there’s a lot in there!
I thought it would be fun to make a little stop-motion video of me opening the box.
Tucked in a little envelope were the instructions for making a paper handbag, so eager to get going, I made a start.
The instructions have photos too and are very simple to understand. First step – making a net to fold the handbag.
It was easy to fold and assemble after scoring the lines.
