Crafty Ribbons Poppy Wreath

Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a wreath I made using various Crafty Ribbons ribbon. I started by covering the wreath with plain white satin ribbon, then adding Spring Ribbons, Polka Dot Bias binding, All my love ribbon, and Nautical ribbon. I then added cute red buttons from my stash to finish :)

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments! :)

Butterfly Box with felt lining

Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with a gift I made for my friend's special birthday. I found some gorgeous napkins in a supermarket that I couldn't bear to use just wiping up so I decided to use them to cover some plain wooden boxes :)

I put mod podge on the wood then carefully folded the napkin down onto the wood and tapped any air bubbles out gently. I then left it to dry. On the top was a heart shape void. I didn't want to see inside the box from the outside so I found some pretty paper that matched the butterflies and placed it in the top of the lid, then covered this with thick cardstock on the inside for strength. I varnished the outside of the box and the heart cut out with more mod podge and left to dry. I then added a butterfly cut from felt over the heart.
 Lastly I cut panels of felt in a similar colour to the butterflies on the outside and covered the inside.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges: Eclectic Ellapu: Anything Goes Lo…
