Craft Gift Boxes

As our (mine and my sisters) annual Eid party is coming up this weekend, we four have had a war-council to delegate work, costs and food shopping and preparation. We have all pooled our resources for gifts and prizes and I have pored over my loot-bag stash which I have collected over the year (long-live booties and the bargain bin) to create party bags our guests will remember.

I picked up these two lovely boxes for 50p each and cleared out my craft boxes to create two gift boxes.

As you can see one is more beading and sewing/knitting focussed and the other is more card-making or paper-crafts focussed.

I cobbled together the tags and Long-Suffering Sister tied the parcels up for me with some pretty green ribbon. I think these would make nice parcels for musical chairs - with nasheeds of course (although that doesn't stop the game from becoming rather rowdy).
