This Christmas, ParcelHero are auctioning gift boxes designed by artists from all over the world. All money raised goes directly to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Last year we raised nearly £1,000 for Oxfam; this year we want to do better and raise £1,500. This money will be enough to purchase a portable heart monitor and can genuinely help save young lives this winter. Every winning bid will receive their gift box with free postage and a £20 ParcelHero worldwide shipping voucher will be included inside.
Amanda Shortman of The Family Patch has gifted us with this wonderful blue box. The box itself is decoupaged with varying shades of blue tissue paper and has a gold trim around its inside lip. Once opened, the box has a royal blue interior which the gold lining sets off nicely. The most impressive feature of this gift box is the necklace that is found within. Here is how Amanda describes her masterpiece: “it is a two-strand necklace made with turquoise chips and complementary seed beads (clear and two shades of blue). It has a decorative silver played clasp to complete it.”
The tagline for The Family Patch is “like coffee with a good friend,” this beautifully sums up what they are all about. With a warm and friendly tone, you will find Amanda’s musings on life, craft guides, and honest accounts of life with Amanda and her family.

The box is decorated with a subtle gold background and features an intricate flower and butterfly design in brown and purple.

Randi Dukes has provided us with a fantastic gift box for our charity auction this Christmas. Randi of Dukes & Duchesses has named her creation DIY Art Box. As the name suggests, we find art supplies inside. Once opened, you see watercolours fixed to the inside of the lid, three mini canvasses and a small paint brush. The top of the box features a unique design also, Randi describes it on her blog “I randomly watercoloured the top of the box and added the word “create” in bright yellow vinyl.”
