Buttons Everywhere!

This weekend I am at Debden House in the Epping Forest. Every year I go there with a group of lovely scrapbooking friends. This started off seven years ago with the Blossom Babes group on UKS and has grown and adapted along the way.

A small tradition has developed where we all make one another a small gift as a memento of the weekend.  This year I made these necklaces, one for each person in their favourite colours.

I made a shape with the Cricut and adapted it in the Cricut Craft Room Programme. Then with Adobe (and a little help from Emily we designed and printed this background and the names onto the card die cuts.

The necklaces were made by adapting the instructions from two tutorials I found on the Crafty Ribbons Blog. Here and Here. The first for the basic pattern of the buttons and the second because I wanted a proper clasp to secure the necklace rather than just tying the ribbon behind the neck. Otherwise the organza ribbon I used would quickly start to fray.



 Hope you like them girls.
Thanks for looking.
