I wanted to make a thankyou gift to a dear blogging friend who when she found out I was after a very particular stamp not only sourced it for me but also purchased and sent it to me. What a star!!
So what to make? Well I knew that Di loves pink, flowers and butterflies so I selected a few pink floral fat qtrs from my stash to choose from and broke out a very well known carboard cat food box to cut the correct size elements I needed for my idea.
A while later and all that needs doing is the sides to be stiched up, the top popped on and piping to be sewn all round the edges.
Now I needed to make some flowers so out came my off cuts of paper card (I never throw any pieces away however small as all bits will get used up) and made Roses in different shades of pink, size and style.
I couldn't leave it at that so out came by oddments of shrink plastic and I hatched a few butterflies too.
All finished and ready to go into the covered box.
Looks like three of the butterflies managed to escape!!
