I have been slowly putting the finishing touches to the boxes which my creations are going to be displayed in and this post is about the jandals which I have supplied for those guests with sore feet.

And now onto what I've created. Nothing fancy compared to the beauties above but just perfect for what we have in mind. Actually I haven't even worked out where we are going to put it yet either haha.
1. Choose your container: You can use steel buckets, wicker baskets, wooden boxes, whatever your mind conjures up you can pretty much use as your container. I used a wooden wine box which I purchased off eBay.

2. Decide how you are going to decorate the outside of your box: I followed the theme of my wishing well and parasol box and used the thick ribbon and white card with black backing with writing in the Rough Type writer font.

3. Decide how you are going to put your items in the box: When I brought the boxes, they had some cardboard left in them which was used to house the wine. I glued the cardboard to the inside of the box so I could layer the jandals inside it. I then put some shreds inside it to line it.

4. Display your items: I worked from the back forwards, lining the jandals up in size and attempting to face them the same way and alternate the colours. My jandals were $1 each from Big W so I wasn't able to get them all the same due to the price of them and the small amount left.

And the finished item. I'm rather impressed with the outcome, as at first I didn't think it was going to turn out but I've had a few comments from friends when they came round for dinner and they loved the idea. So I'm pretty stoked with it. See below for the finished photos ...
