Ultimate cheapskate gift...


..a box of nothing!

I have made this for this week's forever friends challenge (starting tomorrow) where we have a guest host, Jackie, who has set the theme "anything but a card" a great theme as these bears are useful for so much more than just cards!

The paper is from a mega K&Co pad I purchased from QVC. great papers, but much flimsier than normal k&co papers, but at least that means I will actually use them rather than save them for "best".

I am also entering this for this week's sunday stamper challenge "livin in a box"

  6. Ooh, I remember making LOTS of these - slightly different poem - for a Christmas Fayre one year - they went down really well, too :) My kids brought me one home from Sunday School when they were younger - so sweet :)

    You've done a great job of it, Joanne.

  13. Perfect in purple and I would hardly say it is an empty box. It's obvious a lot of love went into it!
