Moving Home Kit

This is my housemoving Kit!  I just love this Dustin Pike image - the dragon makes me laugh everytime!  With his teddy....so funny! 
It may not be clear in the second pic, but this contains some little individually wrapped teabags, some "straws" of coffee, sugar sachets, some prewrapped biscuits, a pack of tissues, a pack of wipes, a little keyring gift and a small pack of sweets.  Yes - they all fit in, even though the box is small!

Ok - did this specifically for the Sir Stampalot and Floral Fantasies challenge.  The challenge was "moving" to be interpreted in anyway!  Of course, I went plain and simple!  It's to celebrate Sir Stampalot moving to new premises soon!

Ooo just realised I link this up to a couple more challenges....use up your stash - a new blog not limited to papercrafts but not excluding - I am claiming the papers and the image on this one.  The theme was to take inspiration from a pink cushion - not too good at frilly - and dont think my dragon is either - so am claiming the colour theme of pink and green - yes its tenuous!  

And also Saturday Spotlight - bigger is better - this image is MEANT to overlap the top of the box!!!!  Yeah, right!  LOLX

Ok - gonna go and do some patchwork now - yep I got a kit!

thanks for looking

I love your housemoving kit. I think I will borrow your idea soon ;-) Since I found out that people sometimes forget to move the salt I always bring the traditional bread and salt, so they are able to cook pasta. So, a house moving kit will be a little change to my routine.
The dragon is fun. I love its details - esp. its little suitcase and its face. Little dragon does not look very happy about moving...

Hiya Ruthie, this is just amazing. As you say, the dragon is such a cutie you can't help but smile when you see him.
The essentials in the kit are perfect, just what you need when moving. The weaved effect on the basket is fab, must have taken you ages. Love it, well done.
Thanks for taking part in the Sir Stampalot Challenge, good luck.
happy crafting.
