So May is Perry Birthday month because my b-i-l, sister and nepher (all Perrys) have their birthdays within 3 weks of each other. I'd hoped to make them all a little something but have had to admit defeat with my nephew - he's just gonna have to mae do with a "Woody" dressing up costume. Let's be honest, he's 5 - he really won;t care what he gets.
Which leaves my sis. I swore I would not make any more button necklaces after my first attempts - they're just too darn fiddly but both my sisters have been nagging me so I'll probably have to make anothe one before I can unstick my fingers from the superglue and hang up the blunt edge pliers for good.
It's quite hard to tell from the pic but the buttons are muted blues and a silvery grey. The box is made from a sheet from LLB Venaissance.
and wrapped up
My sisters have also both asked for a ribbon brooch. I'm still trying to perfect the flowers on these but I think they're getting a bit better.
and here is her card
A beautiful gorjuss girl - my sister is so special I even used a sheet of my Cosmo Cricket "Earth love" for this one. Rub-ons are by American craft. Sentiment from Craftword Cards. The little flowers are off cut's from a corner punch - I must have had them in a little pot on my desk for at least a year - I knew they'd come in handy eventually
Better crack on with the housework now - 11.12pm - is probably not a good time to start tho
