Slide Mailer Box.......







I'm not really sure what to call this, it's 4 slide mailers joined together and decorated for a birthday celebration, I'm in the middle of making a Christmas one, it's never too early to start on your Christmas decorations, I should know as I'm late starting them every year so I thought I'd start early this year. I've been inspired by Clarky J on the Docrafts forum who is holding a Christmas ATC swap, you send in 9 and get 9 back, I'm half way through these too then I got a bit of a block and lost my mojo. It's slowly returning to me now......lol! Maybe it was something to do with the nice weather and being outside in my allotment, which by the way is producing lots, I've just picked about 3 kgs of strawberries in the last 2 weeks and made strawberry jam with some of them






Well, it's raining now, I think we needed it, my lawn is looking a bit sorry for itself........

This looks fascinating. One question, what is a slide mailer? Is it somewhere on your blog I can;t find it. Great piece of work and a Christmas one sounds like a good thing to try.

Hi Carol, just popped over to say there is something for you on my blog. Love what you've done with these slide mailers, haven't altered one for ages, perhaps I'll do tat for next month's giveaway. I have booked a date with myself to spend a week on Christmas in July but if this weather keeps up (and I hope it does!!) I shall be out in the garden as well although I try to do a bit in my craft room the middle of the day when it's too hot outside. The strawberries sound great but I bet you've been kept busy with the watering the last couple of weeks!!

What a great idea! Looks fab - Christmas one would look great - but you'd need a strong tree to hang 1 on !! Luv Joyce x
