Halloween Birthday Party
Hi there,I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.I am,but it is a bit hectic.My daughter is at her friends Halloween Birthday Party and this is the costume we made.I said in the last post she was going to be a Dryad,which in Greek mythology is a tree spirit and this is what we came up with.This dress was white and I dyed it a cocoa brown.The leaves were cut with my Spellbinder Assorted leaves,and then stitched onto the dress.I had to show my daughter how to stitch them on and she stitched them all and did a fabulous job.The head piece was a fairy tiara,I cut all the feathers off and glued eveything to it.You can't see,but we have also tied a few pieces of metallic gold ribbon to the back,which falls nicely over her hair.

You have seen the card,but the box is what I made to put the present in.This is such a fabulous box and I know these will be my favourite box to make and so very easy too.I first saw this box on Jackie's blog and so glad I did,just in time to use it for the present,thanks Jackie.If you want to make this box you can find the tutorial here.Well,enjoy your weekend.
