Just thought I would share with you the presents I made for my friend Angie's Birthday and a surprise gift for my Son's Girlfriend.
They are the configuration Boxes by Tim Holtz. These are not the first boxes like this I have made, I love making them, I find them very therapeutic to do.
The only problem I have when making them is finding all the "Findings" to go inside.
I try to find lots of tiny little bottles, clocks, cotton reels etc. Tim does do quite a good range, but I try to look in other places too. I sometimes find old Christmas baubles as long as they are not too big. If you can see on the photo, the silver mirror type balls are tree ornaments!!
A couple of people have asked me the price to make these boxes, but I find them really expensive. The boxes themselves start at about £7 for the smallest one (they do lots of sizes, even huge ones) The boxes then have to be decorated with Tim's tissue tape and papers, ink etc. BUT the major costs are buying all the "Findings" that go in all the boxes, they can be up to £3 a piece! This can get quite pricey.
Up to now I have made all mine to give away as presents, so would only make them for this.
Hope you like them.
