In the Bag/Box is the theme at Craft Your Passion this week.This means we’d love to see a handmade bag/box created for a loved one.We have the fabby Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor too! Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I’ve used the super cute Birthday Penguin – gift from Bugaboo Stamps to make this little box for my son’s Birthday.It’s not ’til September but I REALLY like to get ahead with making things for my family!I’ve coloured him with Polychromos pencils and blended with low odour oils thinners on a paper stump.I’ve kept it simple but added some interest with the punched edges on the lid and some baker’s twine.That’s how I like to my male themed stuff.I stamped the sentiment in the corner to fill the gap.
