Lucky Packets

I have been dying to make these again. Sam and I have been making them for Hey Cherry for years, so Durban knows all about them, but for the new Aussie clients here is their introduction. They are finally available in our shop and will be on sale at our first markets as well (will keep you updated on venues and times). These Lucky Packets are stitched together using vintage sheet music or illustrations from vintage books (only the ones that were falling apart). The original page is used in each case. The contents of each packet vary slightly from those shown in the photograph - it is, after all, a Lucky Packet and so some mystery must remain. No two lucky packets are the same. These are ideal gifts for young and old. We also do bulk orders if you would like to use these as party favours, wedding favours or Secret Santa gifts. Contact me on bronwen[at]madeonce.com.au for pricing and theme availability.


The women's ones contain things like a vintage book, a blank gift card, 3 x 1970's recipe cards, a pair of patterned tweezers, some post it notes and a measuring tape. 
The men's ones contain things like a vintage paperback Hardy Boys novel, a note book, 3 x 1970's recipe cards, a Lego luggage tag and a key ring.
The older boy's (ages 7-10 years) ones contain a vintage paperback novel, some puzzles  a double sided western inspired board-game, a smiley badge and some fruit nuggets. 
The younger boy's (ages 3-6 years) ones contain a vintage children's book, a magnifying glass, a little plastic frog, some party game suggestions, a decorate it yourself frog sticker and a packet of fruit nuggets. 
The older girl's (ages 7-10 years) ones contain a vintage paperback novel, a vintage styled paper doll,  hair accessories, some colouring in cards and sticker, colouring pencils and a packet of fruit nuggets. 
The younger girl's (ages 3-6 years) ones contain a vintage paperback children's book, a vintage inspired paper doll,  some party game ideas, a little mermaid doll, a shaped eraser and a packet of fruit nuggets.
