Just for Fun



Lots of pictures on this post but not too many words. I have been colouring up my Gorjuss Girls today and thought I would make something other than a card with them, so I trawled through lots of blogs and found the instructions for making this lovely little gift Here.



The little round tin used to hold a scented candle, so I am going to get out my candle making stuff out tomorrow and make a new candle to put inside, My DIL has a birthday next month and I intend to fill the box with some goodies and give her this little set.



I measured and cut a strip from a piece of 12"x12" Brazil Basic card and a thinner strip of the DP to cover the side of the tin, added some matching ribbon and a paper rose, the lid was covered with a circle of DP cut with circle nestie.



Thanks for looking
Hugs
