Round Top Box***


I am seeing my little nieces this weekend *** We are going out for High Tea at the Old Mill in Toronto. We are celebrating my Mom's birthday***
The girls are 6 and 2 so I made them these round top boxes filled with a writing pad, crayons and pencils.
I added a sentiment from Anna Wight's set and some yellow satin ribbon.
The designer paper is from October Afternoon. I used it to make the boxes and cover the writing pad..
This should keep them busy during High Tea***
Enjoy everyone!!

I wish I had granddaughters or nieces in my life so I had a reason to do these types of things.. I'm surrounded by men in our family.
