One of the things on my four-one list was to participate in a swap. I’ve seen so many blogs where people have crafted something for someone and got a wonderful gift in return, so when I saw the Popular Crafts Magazine mentioned on twitter, I took the plunge and applied.
The button swap was just about to close so I sneaked in at the last minute. I’ve made button hair clips for my website so I thought I’d make something like that. However, when I got my swap partner’s details and likes, I thought of my decopatch kit I’d bought before Christmas.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo including the detail on the box. It’s a heart shaped lidded box with a great red and black lacy pattern. I chose some red and black buttons for the lid from my stash to go on the top. I really enjoyed trying decopatch for the first time so I’ll definitely be hurrying back to the kit when I get time.
I also had to choose a treat to buy to go along with it so I went to my fantastic local habby and bought some orange and black handmade fimo beads and some assorted charms.
Fingers crossed she likes them!
(That’s got ‘participating in a swap’ and ‘adding photos to my blog’ ticked off the list!)
