Well you see the title, well I made this iPod box for Paul based on this idea however being americal they just used candy, and I had to make it into a box ...
I literally put blood, sweat and tears (ok so not the sweat) but blood and tears .... here is the outcome
Yes I managed to slice off my fingertip with my scalpel whilst crafting, thing is, that I only changed the blade on it yesterday, so it was nice and sharp ready to slice into me!! Grrr! I won't show you the graphic photos of all of the blood everywhere, my lovely MIL came to the rescue and managed to dress it properly for me!!
Anyway onto the iPod, I added my own songs to the template and printed them off, then made up a box which was small enough to look life like, but big enough to hold an iTunes voucher for him. I added some red and white bakers twing for the wire, and taped on a role on the end of each piece for the headphones! (cooh eh!)
Now with Paul working away during the week, we are planning to make a meal together on Saturday night, and I will decorate the table etc etc, so I made up a little pale of sweets, just for a little something extra, and I have bought him a Blu Ray disc aswell!
Tha Bucket (Pail) came from hobbycraft and was 89p, I filled it with Silver heart Dragees (wedding favour) and lindt lindor eggs, but it looked a little plain, so I added some flowers to the handle (knowing that these can be removed afterwards and reused!)
Well thats it for me today, mainly because I am struggling to type, I never realized how much I typed with my little fingers on both hands!! whoops!
