Revision avoidance!

It's been a really long hard week at work - it's just that time of year, so I've been getting home late & too tired to do pretty much anything. I have an exam looming in 4 weeks time so I really should be studying, but I'm not in the right frame of mind for that yet! Funny how even the housework is more attractive when exams are on the horizon, Lol.

Anyway, I've been looking forward to the weekend for lots of reasons - football season is all but over which means my son didn't have training this morning, and no match on Sunday, so we were able to have a nice lie-in :-)
This Sunday is also time for my monthly papercraft class - I run a small class at home, usually on the third Sunday in the month and I really enjoy it. (Hubby quite likes it too 'cos it means I spend Saturday tidying the house!)
So once I had tidied up I treated myself to a bit of crafting time & I made these...

This small pizza style box is made using SU Cardstock in Really Rust and Barely Banana, with matching ribbon and a small piece of patterned paper from my stash. The stamped greeting is from a retired SU hostess set called Best Yet.
The box is really easy to make and can easily be adapted to suit the size of whatever you want it to hold. This one is 4" square and 1" deep. I think it will make a nice gift with a set of small square cards inside.

After that I set to using up a few of my scraps & tried out the "Bag in a box" or "Box in a bag" that I have seen on several blogs recently. They are so sweet I had to give them a go...

Cute huh? It's one of my girlfriend's birthdays this week, so I'm planning to fill the larger of these with a few little crafting bits that I think she'll enjoy :-) Hope you like it Em!
