A Thai Birthday

Happy Monday ~

I just realised this is my first post for the month of October ... time has been moving quickly. I haven't really been crafting much lately so I'll share a couple of projects that kept me busy back in August.

A dear friend chose to celebrate her 40th in Thailand! She had about 30 family and friends joining her over there and wanted to present them each with a gift of thanks. She needed boxes so I made them for her ... they travelled flat and she put the sides together over there.

Unfortunately my only photograph was a little hurried. Half of the boxes were for the ladies and a little taller than those for the men. I did see a pic of them all put together and grouped and they looked pretty good.

This is the birthday card I made for her ... a telescopic fold, just for a little something special.

Gorgeous Kid and I have been trying to find the perfect day to visit Floriade. Canberra has been experiencing really odd weather this past couple of weeks and it's been quite wet so I'm not keen to go trudging through mud while looking at all the Spring Delights Floriade is showing. Typically today was lovely and sunny and we'd made other plans! Hope your October is going well so far!


  1. Beautiful honey, love the boxes, they are gorgeous and the card is so so so sweet x

  2. They are stunning Patrice, I wouldn't have cared if there was nothing in it, the box would have been enough. And the card is stunning, I have seen a couple of cards using that stamp set, may have to get it for myself.

  3. Goodness the boxes turned out great!!! Can't believe how many you made :)

  4. These are fantastic, and that card is magnificent, terrific job xx

  5. Oh wow - such beauty!! The boxes, and birthday card, are glorious, love. Sooooo envious that you live in the city of Floriade; one day I will get there. (Hope the weather allows you to get there this year xx)

  6. Heya :)
    the boxes turned out fab! Really stylish. Hope you and gorgeous kid enjoyed a lovely day in the sun.
