I did not think I would have one of these ready for this week since I have spent this week laid up with asthma, sinusitis and a chest infection. Whoever said things come in threes was not wrong! I’m still on the antibiotics and will be for the next fortnight. I have taken amoxicillin more times than I can remember and it has never made me as sick as I have felt this time. I don’t know if it’s the prolonged period of time that I’ve been on them or what but yeah, it’s gross. Sometimes I think it’s better to actually be sick than feel it.At this size it seems to hold around 15 little sweets so I think it’d make the perfect little gift box for either emergency “oops, I forgot” presents or a stocking filler.

The paper is from Simple Stories (red polka dot) and American Crafts (gold chevron). I used some May Arts pompom trim and some cream and white Dovercraft twine with some Jingle bells. The wood veneer shape is also Dovecraft (I think). The red button at the centre of the bow is from Fancy Pants and the gems are from stash.
