I painted the box using the JoSonjas acryllic paints mixed with a bit of texture paints to give it..... well....... a textured finish. I then used some of the Tilda papers to and some ribbon to decorate it. When I had finished I gave it a good covering of JoSonja matt varnish to protect it.
I then made some index cards, one for each month of the year.
Mum and Dad have just had their garden re-landscaped, so they are have just started planting out the new garden. I thought it would be a good idea for them to keep a record of the work that they are doing so they will know what to change or to keep for next year.
To finish the present I brought some packets of seeds, one for each month and put them with the appropriate month index card.
They seemed very pleased with the gift.
Have a good weekend.
