Pigeon Pair

Morning all....hope you all got the opportunity to get a little crafty over the weekend???

A couple of weeks back, my work place underwent accreditation. Now if any of you have been through this process, you'll be aware that it is very intense and high stress. Basically it is needed every 3 years in the medical field so that your medical practice/hospital/health facility is seen to be maintaining the standards it should.

This time around was our Medical Centre's first in it's new premises. the old rooms consisted of 5 doctors sharing 2 consulting rooms, NO treatment room (they did not have any nurses till recently) and a very small reception area. Where we are now consists of 6 consulting rooms, a treatment room, 7 doctors, 2 nurses, a physio, blood pathologists....basically MUCH bigger. Policies were written for the treatment room and a lot of other things that did not exist previously.

Happily, we passed accreditation and to say thank you to the Practice Manager and my fellow Practice Nurse (as she did A LOT of the policy work), I made them both a small pamper package. This is what they got.....

Now for all of you playing at home, yes, these are Gable Boxes. There is a tutorial on SCS here. I find them deceptively big in that they only 6" tall (the box bit is 3 1/2" x 2 1/4") but they HOLD a lot!!! This is what I had hidden in mine.....

The box contained from the "Body Shop": a Shea Butter soap, a scented small body lotion and a myriad of Lindt wafer chocolates. Needless to say the girls were wrapped. I made a co-ordinated note card and envelope too. I was ecstatic with the result. I really think I am starting to get the hang of this co-ordination thing??

Thanks for dropping by. If you wanna give someone a "WOW" gift, try a gable box. I altered mine ever so slightly so that it was made form 1 sheet of A4 CS.
