Welcome to my blog, which one day, hopefully, should be filled with wonderful handmade card ideas! My goal is to create a blog with ideas for some easy, 'make-able' cards for you to take inspiration from! (It's what I've always needed to help me!)

Sonny's Christening Present

As well as a card, I made some of Sonny's Christening present too, and I will tell you now, it was not painless!

I bought the frame and lots of blue buttons, though it could be in any colour really. I printed off an 'S' shape and arranged the buttons in a random order in that shape. We then realised that PVA glue may not hold the buttons to the card for very long, and the only other thing we had to hand was a hot glue gun... so that's what we used. I managed to burn my fingers several times, especially when the glue came through the holes in the buttons, and spent AGES getting all the stringy glue bits off, but it was worth it, and the frame looked lovely :)
