Sshhhh it's a secret challenge.....

The challenge on Polkadoodles this week is

I decided to make a gift card box as my project for this week, using papers from the popular Sundae of Seasons CD - the bees, hive and honey pot are from the CD as well.

Here it is closed........

and when you open it a little gift card holder pops up
there is room to write a message below, and the drawer lifts out to take a surprise present

Still unpacking like crazy here, and later today I have to pack another case to take down to London. I seem to be living out of suitcases lately. The garden has had a few hours work today as well. I had a lovely water feature - a tall Ali Baba type terracotta urn with water spilling gently over the top onto a bed of pebbles. I noticed it was totally dry, and when I looked, the bottom of it has snapped neatly into four. So that's the end of my gently trickling water, but I have rescued the pot it's far too nice to throw out - even if it is bottomless. Looks good in a shady corner, I daresay the pest squirrels will use it as their pantry and fill it full of acorns


  1. one fab creation !!!
    sunny greetings, martina

  2. So gorgeous Enfys.

  6. Fun! You could put a Giraffe pin in the box for the surprise gift : )
    Better the squirrels store and eat the acorns from your repurposed water feature than the engine of your car... didn't you have damages from the little rascals before?

  7. This is great, love this one!

  8. Love your project. I've seen you make these before and just love them. One day I'll give it a go and make some myself. Very nice.
