DIY: Party Hat Gift Box

DIY: Party Hat Gift Box

Hip Hip Hooray! I’m continuing on from the DIY Kiosk anniversary celebrations with a fun party craft project. This little party hat gift box is also extra special as it recently appeared in a book! The very talented designer, author and friend Michelle Mackintosh has written and designed the most beautiful book called Care Packages. It’s filled with lots of unique, fun and creative ideas for sending petite parcels through the mail to friends and loved ones. I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to contribute and have my work featured alongside so many creatives and snail mail friends from all over the world.

DIY: Party Hat Gift Box

As part of the #PO Box project we were all given the same mission – to send a unique parcel through the mail, the theme and it’s contents was up to us. Michelle knows that I quite enjoy making mini paper treasures so I was really excited to get started. As you can see by some of my past DIY Kiosk projects I really like my party craft – as well as childhood nostalgia. So for my submission I decided to make a Party-in-a-box, a gift box that was in the shape of a party hat with a pom-pom on top off course! For the contents I handmade paper party themed items from nostalgic childhood party memories. Some of the things included a lolly loot bag (more on this coming soon!), mini fairy bread card, musical chair, candle to make a wish, mini pass the parcel and pin the tail on the donkey. There were a few more things included, but I’m saving those surprises for future DIY’s and creative projects! (Hope that’s OK with you?). Continue reading

Shop The Kiosk: Fairy Bread Cards

Fairy Bread Cards

Happy 1st Birthday to the DIY Kiosk!! Today I’m celebrating one year of sharing crafty projects with you. I’m so thankful for your support and words of encouragement in the comments and via Instagram – it means the world. After blogging over here for five years, I wanted to focus more on all the fun things I enjoyed making on a daily basis and share them with you. This new adventure started with a Fairy Bread piñata (this little Aussie childhood party food seems to be getting more interest on the web since!). So I thought it was fitting to celebrate with the return of one of my handmade products – Fairy Bread Cards, available now in the KIOSK.
