Tale of the Stick and Squeeze boxes

Afternoon - me again.... :) 

Just a quick post this afternoon 

I thought I would show you something I made 
for the Christmas tree 

Squeeze Boxes 

As you can see the middle one has glitter around the edges. Had to use
that red tape to add the glitter - so that I kept a straight line !!!

Here you can see the underside which you squeeze to open up 

I used Tonic dies to make the shape, glued together
added Tonic drops around the edges
and added Ribbon to the top, so as to hang them on branches
and added some sequins I was given.

My grandson loved them - can fill them with chocolate
as a special treat. 

I would like to enter the squeeze boxes for the following



I am back from a romp around the lanes this afternoon -
went further than I thought and got a bit stuck in the mud
but was able to find a trusted stick and got round Spooky Lane 
without falling in the mud. 

Note to self - were proper walking boots next time
but I did decide on the spur of the moment to walk all the round 
the block. 

This is the "stick" - did you watch the Stick Man over 

Thanks for popping in and hopefully 
see you tomorrow
