My BFF and I have our birthdays with a week in between, so the summer is all about parties and prezzies! We exactly know what to get for each other :-) To maximize the fun of giving I made an array of different presents, some books she liked, masking tape, crafty paper,… And some handmade, especially for her, one of a kind items.
I put the rolls of masking tape in a glass jar that I decorated with a doily and butterfly paper (she loooooves butterflies):
The masking tape was hidden among lots of yarn ends, so she wouldn’t spot the actual prezzie on sight!
Then I began the daunting task to mod podge her a book with nice fabrics. It took me ages, glue and wait to dry and glue and wait and glue and… you get the picture :-) but the end result was worth it I think! At least the birthday girl liked it ;-)
Yes, butterflies again :-)
The backside with roses.
I personalized the first page of her new ‘creative ideas’ book
and included a butterfly and starry bookmark.
Next time I’ll show you the pretty, homemade prezzie she gave me! It’s gorgeous!!
