anniversary gifts for couples How to Make a British Phone Booth from a Cardboard Box customized gifts for mom

This post is sponsored and inspired by VTech.

Our big girls Scarlet and Clare (almost 7 &; 8 years old, can you believe it?) don’;t get to see each other often so they love to catch up on the phone. Having a land line and an affordable and durable cordless phone from VTech gives them the independence to give each other a call “;just because”; without their moms hovering over them waiting to retrieve their cell phones. Ugh, aren’;t moms soooo annoying?

Clare loves to chat with Scarlet and plot their next rendezvous from her new cozy DIY phone booth. Maybe they can convince their moms to take them on a girls’; meet-up in London! Don’;t doubt themanniversary gifts for couples, these girls are very convincing. And if not, they can enjoy the charm of England at home with a DIY cardboard British phone booth made from a wardrobe box.

I love that caller ID lets me know when it’;s Scarlet on the line and I let Clare answer, and?VTech phones’; crisp speakerphone quality makes it possible for her do other stuff (like crafting) while she chats with her best bud.

For me, the best part about Valentine’s Day is giving the ones I love handmade items filled with goodies. This year, I’m making everyone a Valentine Treat Bag with heart shaped cut outs. These are the perfect size for stuffing with candies, gift cards, or even a small stuffed animal or trinket. Best of all? This project is fat quarter friendly and sews up quickly – so you can easily make one for all your friends and family this year!

Pattern weights are really useful for weighing down fabric or pattern paper when you sew.
