Parcel Hero were contacting Craft bloggers, to decorate a wooden box and include a little gift inside and these were then being auctioned off on eBay to raise money for Great Ormond Street, they did this last year and for Oxfam and raised nearly £1,000 and this year their target is £1,500 for Great Ormond Street. Everyone knows what great work Great Ormond Street do for children and I know that we have had some people who have directly been helped by Great Ormond Street and we value the work that goes into that hospital every day so I was really pleased to be involved with this campaign.
I knew that I wanted to incorporate scrapbooking into my charity box so decided to make it a personal Scrapbooking box with some little pieces to make some small cards inside.
I firstly inked the box in pink and the covered the box with paper on all sides and the top of the box, finishing it off with some pink lace and wooden hearts around the box, with a wooden butterfly and with love tag on the top of the box.
Inside the box I covered the bottom layer of both the top and bottom of the box with pink dotted paper, with a white background, making the inside of the box light but still colourful.
Inside the box I included 4 small 3″ x 3″ cards with envelopes, three white wooden hearts, some 3D Adhesive to complete the cards, precut paper, tags with some sayings on, lace feathers in cream and pink and some precut stars for the cards.
All of the items inside the box would decorate the 4 cards and would make some lovely little cards for any occasion and my hope was that the whole box would make a lovely little gift so it would appeal to the eBay market.
I was really pleased with how the box turned out and hope Parcel Hero reach their target of £1,500 for Great Ormond Street and you can see the auction items here, or you can be updated with all the boxes on Parcel Heros blog and you can follow the hashtag #PHWinterWorkshop on twitter as well.
