Room Buddies

My Room Buddy for Convention and travelling companion is the lovely Jenny Moors. I'm sure you know how wonderful her creations are and I'm the lucky one that only lives five miles from her. Anyway, I wanted to make something special for Jen for putting up with me while we're away and of course I had to make something. I bought some lovely smellies which came in a box. The box wasn't too bad but as a true crafter I had to ditch the packaging and make my own...lol! It's quite a big box this one and I used the Bella Toile background stamp in Basic Black onto Very Vanilla for the box sides. A thick window sheet was added to the inside of the lid and the flowers were made with the five petal punch along with some Cafe Latte Buttons....oh and that gorgeous black wide striped ribbon. Honestly it's to die for, so soft and easy to tie bows. The gold elastic thread was used to tie everything together.Also I decorated this heart shaped window tin which has some Ferrero Roche in. After all you can't give a gift to another female without there being chocolate can you?!?!?! Tfl, Jo :)
