Hens Party Box by Meredith Hilly

Hello to all. Hope you are enjoying a bit of sunshine.
Recently my daughter had her hens night and I scrapped her a book of all the fun things we got up to.
Not wanting everyone to be able to see these activities a box was needed to be made for the book to be stashed in.

I used a red chocolate container and recycled it into the box I needed by sticking ribbon and paper onto it. This fitted the book and also the some of the party favours I made for our guests on the night.

The flowers where made using two or three of the paper flowers from Megs garden. By holding the centre of the first flower and pinching the petals up you then repeat the same process with the second flower. Fold as many as you want for a fuller flower effect. Then gather them together and glue them down. I added green glitter to the centre of them for a deeper effect. I think they look like dahlias.

Beings a hens night my lovely hens donated some feathers to the decorations on the lid.

I am sorry I am not able to show you the hens book inside but "What happens on a hens night stays on a hens night."
