Making a Presentation Box

Were you charmed by Shannon Grearson's little jewelry set in the May-June 2017 issue of Needlepoint Now?   If so, you are in luck as Shannon has posted instructions for making a presentation box coordinated to the jewelry set on her blog, Sewing with Bobbin and Fred.

The box would work for all sorts of gifts so have fun checking out the instructions and then planning how to box up those Christmas ornaments you made for the grandkids…

By the way, Shannon talks about how she got her designs into Needlepoint Now magazine.

  1. Jane, the link to how she got into the magazine goes to Enriched stitch, not the blog post of Shannons.

    1. That's very odd. The link is there—I can see it. Well, I erased the link and then added it back. I get the right place. Wonder if everyone else will? If you don't, I suggest clearing your cache and trying again. Or copy/paste. That should work. Heck, it should work already! I don't know if there is hidden HTML code there I cannot see or if today's the day the Internet hates me. Sorry!
