Happy Birthday Mum...

It's my mum's 70th Birthday today... can't believe the number.. she looks really great for her age. I bought her a beautiful bracelet and the gift wrapping was pathetic... so I made my own heart box, thanks to  and a little mouse card. The mouse is made from http://www.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com/free-gift-box-templates.html a page from the telephone directory. (Mouse instructions from www.origami-club.com/en). The mouse sheet is 150mm x 150mm sorry don't have the inches. A little bit of ribbon and heypresto he's ready for a dinner party. The box that Mr Mouse is sitting on is made from the top of a Lipton's tea box that I recovered with paper. 


It was all easy peasy cheap and cheesy and made with lots and lots of Love... Hope she doesn't look at my blog, coz she ain't getting her pressy and card till tomorrow night....
