Boxing day.......

Today was all about boxes.

Making boxes.
Putting things IN boxes.

I do love little things in boxes.....

Firstly, I had to organise a delivery of gorgeous pure silk ribbons which arrived yesterday, sorting them into their colour groups then putting them all away in their respective boxes. 


 I LOVE silk ribbons.....

Unusually tidy......
Then I turned my attention to making a batch of boxes.....

Mignonette doll boxes in 25 different colours
I designed them specially for my little Mignonette toy dolls and have printed them in all the colours I'm likely to need.


They're really quite time-consuming to make but there's something wonderfully calming about the process.... methodically cutting, scoring, folding, gluing the bases and lids.


I've even designed the lid labels, which are also colour matched to each box.

So each of the little 'Pinspirational' dolls I make, can be nestled into a box which perfectly complements their costume colours.....

My 'first week of February' Mignonette Toy Doll

The perfect way to spend a cold, foggy, February day.
