Butterflies & Fairies

Good morning all, Happy Mother's Day.


Okay, so you know I've started making my own hat pins, well I needed somewhere for them to live.  So after my daughter had some beans on toast I decided to have a go at turning the tin into a home for my pins...


what d'ya think?
I gently took the lable off to use as a template to cut the patterned paper (HOTP Nonna's Garden) and glued it on and then just glued a little lace around the top.  The inside is just toy stuffing with a piece of white felt over the top.


Onto to today's card.  I have designed it to hopefully enter the following challenges.

  1. Wow Caz - this is stunning! Brilliant detail and such lovely colours. The hat pins are gorgeous - wonder if we could have baked beans on toast tonight :)

    Do think about making something using snippets, card, ribbon or lace and coming into the snippets playground to play.

    I bet you used a snippet on one of these - and the playmates would love to see!

    Have a great day! Di xx
