Since this Hop is all about Kids, we ask that if you have kids, grand kids, nieces, nephews the neighbours kids! Any kids at all! Have them look at all the projects we have created.....It would be great to have kids comment on our projects! Just put your child's name and age and you can type what they say about our projects! If you don't have kids, no need to worry!! You can all still join in!!

This is my project...........
Instructions:

1. To start off you will need 24 small match boxes, but you can get what ever size you like! Empty each match box.
2. Tape the top of each box, stack and stick 3 together, you should have 8 stacks of 3. As shown in the picture's below.....
3. Choose your of papers which can be patterned or just plain wrap it around the boxes. It looks cool to have different patterns for each stack of 3 but its up to you!

4. Once you have finished putting your paper on you now can stick it together in a square, stack the boxes like this below and stick them all together,
It should look like this, with paper on it too.
5. Then get a thick piece of card that over hangs the edge about 1/4 and inch, cover it with matching top and bottom and then stick it on the top and bottom of your box.

6. Next.............. pull out  all your draws, poke holes in the centre, stick a brad through some ribbon and put it through the draw hole, it should look something like this.........you can also stamp a flourish on the draws to decorate more.
7. Now my favourite part, decorate the box with anything and everything! I have used bling, flowers, rub-on's, buttons and lots more just add anything the  you like
I coloured the Kaiser flower a different colour using my copics, to make it the colour I needed it.
I used the Hippy Girl Kaiser pack!
Thank you so much for hopping along with us,we hope we have inspired many others kids to get crafty! Don't forget to visit all the blogs! We will have 10 WINNERS!

Now to your next blog Maddison......(http://www.funkycards.blogspot.com/) HAVE FUN AND ENJOY!!
