Cardboard Crafts: Shoebox Laptop

by Jessica Amey

If you’re new here then you might not know about my other blog: Along Came Cherry. It’s where I started blogging over three years ago and where I still share all my stories of parenting. I started doing craft posts over there about a year ago, about six months before I started this blog, and was absolutely thrilled when I found out I had made the craft category finals of the BiB’s and the MAD’S.

During the voting stage of the BiB’s the lovely Maggy from Red Ted Art asked me if I would like to guest post on her blog which I happily agreed to, she has so many wonderful crafts on there.

I forgot to let you know at the time but better late than never.

I made a toy laptop out of a shoe box and if you would like to see how I did it then you can find out here – Cardboard Box Crafts: Computer.

And as this was a little while ago the awards ceremony has been and gone, I couldn’t attend as I was at home recovering from an operation but I was over the moon when I found out I had won!
