I bought a nice advent tree with 24 hooks and was going to buy some little boxes to put something inside and tie up to hang on tree.

I found this YouTube video and was impressed. You might have seen it before but for those who haven't:

    Hi white satin thank you for the link. It's nice to see videos I think no matter what. Personally I couldn't do this as I once seen a programme on the germs in loo rolls and that's why schools don't use them anymore, but what a fab idea and so quick

    Glynisrose , that was a bit harsh with the exclamation marks. Lol The op was only trying to help. I agree there's lots of free templates out there

    I am sure there are, glyisrose. That's how I found that one which particularly impressed me because it is not a template as such, just a snip, snip job and because it was not a regular cube or cuboid shape. No sharp edges like the many I have made over the years without the help of Google.

    susan42, I like to see a video too.

    I agree re the germs and they were not used in the schools I taught in either for that reason but I am more relaxed about it in my own home. I might just make them decorative rather than put anything edible in them though as nobdy will be touching them.

    I love looking at photos of crafts too, Jellie, but, sadly haven't got the hang of photo uploading from my phone yet.

    That's a shame- I shall imagine them and they will be beautiful and sparkly in my imagination!

    As an ex childminder we were informed by someone that we couldn't use toilet rolls or egg boxes until someone found this http://www.hse.gov.uk/myth/august.htm
    (I still didn't us the toilet trolls though). I always used kitchen towle or gift wrap inners

    We also couldn't eat raw cake mix due to salmonella which was hard to explain to the children

    Cute little box, and so easy. Thanks

    Trouble is I then had to watch the egg box roses, paper roses and butterflies,the art journal cover .....and before I knew it time had......gone!
