Something Different Sneak Peak

Happy Saturday!

Today's something different is a sneak peak for tomorrows Mothers Day presentation.  Firstly this is the box I made to contain the gift... The box is made in the same manner as my Wendy House box (thanks Heather for the name) that I demoed last year.  Click HERE to see the original post and HERE to see the tutorial.

The gift itself is made using these hearts that I die cut using a Sizzix heart die in felt and hand stitched in embroidery thread in contrasting colours.

What I have done with the hearts and how I have decorated them will have to wait until tomorrow as my Mum checks the blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise.

For today,



  1. Hi John.Great box, really useful for so many types of gifts. I am sure your Mum will love it, and the contents (which I am looking forward to seeing) Have a good weekend. Take care.

  2. Morning John,

  9. Hi John,
    fabulous box and perfect felt hearts. Can't wait to see what you have in store tomorrow. Have you ever tried making milk cartons, I bet yours would be sooooooooo good.
    Got to go now as my DH has just cut his finger quite badly while making our evening meal.

  11. Hola John
    Sorry I'm late but had GP qually this morning then work this afternoon & evening.
    Yes, I remember that original box and this one is fab too. I'm guessing its a felt bikini you've handcrafted for Mama John? Hope that stitching doesn't come loose lol!
    I eagerly await the morning.
    See you then.
