Up cycled Jewellery Box, Button Jar And Basket...


Last week we received a lovely fun and crafty parcel from Bostik and Tots 100 as part of our monthly crafty challenge. With lots of crafty ideas springing to mind it was hard work deciding which one to go with first.

My daughter pick the egg to decorate first so I glues some felt on the sides and lid of an old ice-cream box, to make her a jewellery box. Some foam inside an old basket to place our shared nail varnish in. Then stuck buttons on to a pasta sauce bottle, to make a cool button jar.

I loved these glue dots, I had never tried these before. They are such a great idea, simple to use and a strong hold. I could do with lots of these for my up cycling shoe projects!!


Here is all our crafty ideas...
