Fabricate Friday – Box for Nivia

I know, I know…the titles of my posts are ridiculous.  I would hire someone to come up with amazing titles for everything but basically today I am making a box that houses a small tin of Nivia cold cream.  I do have a funny story included in the video about my family so even if you aren’t a box maker you may want to tune in to hear the way my family worked when I was little.  Don’t worry Mom, I haven’t spilled the beans about how weird we all were.  🙂  Anyway….hello there and welcome to another box making tutorial everyone.  Woop, woop!  It’s Friday and it’s a great day to get your craft on.  Hope you like the video and of course the supply list is below the still picture and the video follows that, with the recipe underneath.  Have yourself a great weekend folks and I will see you Monday. Oh, PS, I didn’t realize that this ribbon was retired so in the description I did leave an alternative for you to try if you like the colour.  🙂

    Cute box!! What a presentation! And yep, Nivea’s a german build product alright! Good stuff! I grew up on it too! Lol

    Hi there, just watched your demo whilst eating my breakfast (bad manners?) loved the story about your Dad, reminded me of my Grandmother, her cure for all ills was Johnson’s Baby Lotion, or Vaseline! Who knew these products contained such magical qualities!?! It got me thinking about the origins of Nivea, so I googled it – interesting (I know, I am so sad ;(). Anyway, back to your box, love it and thank you for sharing your story; memories are precious. Have a lovely weekend. x

      Hey Karen. Glad you enjoyed the story. I should share more as I feel sometimes just making a project isn’t as entertaining as one would think. Lol. Hope you had a nice breakfast and are getting ready for a nice Saturday. I’m just heading to sleep now, I have to work in the morning. The fuzz butts are running around like crazy right now. Hopefully their energy will cease soon. 🙂
