Birthday Hanger

It’s my Auntie’s birhtday next week, so while I had a lull between crafting projects, I decided to make her present. I’m pleased with the end result, using several of my cheap beads from Spotlight (my bargin of the year – an A4 size bag of bits and pieces for $2. Should have bought more than one, although I have 9 packets of “Spacers” that I don’t know what I’m going to do with! Any thoughts, appreciated!). I also used a paint chip from the hardware store and my new stamp set from SeeD’s – Boutique Grunge.

Card Folder as Gift

For my Grandma’s birthday, I wanted to give her something practical. As she loves my cards so much (she has kept everyone I have ever given her or Grandpa – she puts them into a folder) I thought that giving her a set of mixed cards, that she could give to her friends, was a great gift. I needed to re-stock my general greeting card stash, as I had used most of them and given the rest away to Mary Fenton, for her Farm Drought Relief hampers, so I was “making up a storm” anyways; a few more didn’t make a difference. I then made a folder to put them in. To get the folder to fit an A4 sheet, I couldn’t fit in the envelopes, so I left them separate.

The cards include “Birthday”, “Get well”, “Thank-you” and “Thinking of You” – a good general, all-purpose sentiment. I have insisted that Grandma use them, promising a refill for Mothers’ Day.
