Handmade Gift Ideas

I've been busy of late making quite a few gifts for friends... for both Christmas and birthdays. I'll try to show you a few of them over the next week or two. Today's is actually a gift I made for a friend... so simple and yet so effective! You really cant go wrong with the Mocha Morning paper. I removed the glass so that the butterflies' wings could be popped up higher, and added half-back pearls in the centre of each butterfly.

This was actually one of our projects at my recent Christmas gift class... and as far as I know everyone enjoyed making it, and loved the result. A few of my participants told me there wont be giving it away, but prefer to keep it for themselves...:-)

I used the same idea for the other project (the one you see below)... it's just a different kind of frame. They look great though don't you think?

If you are looking for a quick and easy but effective gift, I would recommend these. You will just need the mocha morning paper, vellum, butterfly die and of course a frame. Decorate to your heart's content. xx

Hi! I could have sworn I've been to this web site before but after looking at some of the articles I realized it's new to me.
Anyhow, I'm definitely delighted I discovered it and I'll be book-marking it
