Butterfly Garden Seed Mix Gifts

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :) Still feeling not right so not my normal self but these were a very simple make :)
Many of you will well know my love of butterflies. I really adore them, and even raise caterpillars (in fact I have some at the moment) :)
So as a gift for my friends I made these little pouches with instructions I created in Craft Artist :)

I bought a couple of boxes of Butterfly seed mix-a collection of plants butterflies love to feed from to plant in their gardens. I split the packet into card bags and sealed.

I then went into the Craft Artist software and designed three different labels for variety.

I printed these onto cardstock and cut them into their individual shapes. I then hand wrote the instructions on the reverse. To keep them nice however long they are needed as the seeds grow I laminated them. This way they can keep the label and discard the rest of the wrapper.

I cut round the laminated bits and left a little border. I made pretty toppers for the sachets with Papermania paper which I double sided taped to the bag, and to each side. Then the instructions were put on but I left them to easily be taken off :)

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
