Crafty birthday!!

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!!
Love, Zjizjipke!

  2. Ze is ook een héél bijzondere vriendin :-) Ik ga proberen zo snel mogelijk een postje te maken met haar mooie kado's ;-) Echt knap!!

  3. LOVED the presies!!! Really want to start putting things in the be-a-creator book you made me, but I'm lacking the time and I'm actually afraid of ruining your masterpiece... (so need to try everything on a piece of paper first ;-) ) Thanks sweety!!! xxx
