3 Flat-Pack Flamingo Boxes

Flamingo Boxes 003I was nattering away about my ideas for birds and boxes from South America, when Beth caught me off-guard by asking me to actually MAKE one of the boxes I described, for her to give as a wedding present. The criteria: small enough to travel to Romania; acceptable for 'him' on the outside and as flamboyantly pink as possible for 'her' on the inside. That's all. Free reign. The budget was tight, so I decided to make the most of the time I was devoting and build three boxes. And here, at last, they are, before one makes its journey to Romania.Flamingo Boxes 006
