So the other week I posted about the Operation Blogger tag, which is basically bloggers doing Operation Christmas Child and posting about their boxes. It's a fun and charitable thing to do at Christmas, and doesn't cost much if you know where to buy your gifts.
After a week or two of collecting goodies I have now finally finished my box - woohooo! It's been so much fun and I love putting thought into the gifts and thinking about what I would have liked at that age. If you didn't see my last post, I chose to make a box for a girl between ages 10-14.
If you go to my last post, you can see the other items I got, but here are the extra gifts I've added since that post. I've also now wrapped my box, whereas in the last post I hadn't wrapped it yet.
I got this Body Shop bag a couple of years ago for £1.50, but have never used it and the label is even still on it! So as it folds up small I thought I'd put it in the box so the girl has something to keep all of her gifts in.

And the lid only just fits on, haha! It's so surprising how much you can fit into a shoebox with a bit of careful/smart packing!
There are quite a few bloggers taking part in this, and a couple of them have already done their boxes and tweeted the links. If you fancy joining in, just blog about the box you're doing with photos, then tweet me the link with the hashtag #OperationBlogger, I'll then add your link to this list here;
