Shoe Box Appeal

As promised I have taken some photo's of the items I have made and also altered. I have used up some old stock of papers, that I thought would be appropriate for little girls and boys. We have also found out where they will be going and this year it will be Romania.
One for the boys and one for the girls.
Included in the boxes are decorated notebooks, decorated pencils, colouring book, box of crayons and some lolly pops. The sweets have to be boiled so I thought they would be nice to be decorated, giving that special touch.
This is a box made and decorated to hold the crayons. I bought a big pack from the £1 shop and split it into 2 giving 40 crayons per pack.


Next where the colouring books I made using my BIA.

Out side and inside. I know how much my own children love to colour in and they love the stamped images I have of children. The children these go to can colour them in and make little scenes around them. We are not allowed to put any words on any of the projects with them going over seas. So I thought these would be really appropriate.
I would so love to be a fly on the wall when the children who get these receive them, just to see their faces light up with joy. Just like both of my own children did when I showed them what I had done.

What a darling idea! I'm betting that any mom would love to have one or two of these in her tote bag to occupy a kid or two at any given time! Super idea!!! TFS!
