DIY: Memorable Birthday Card

BirthdayCardFeat

We all have friends and we all have family members that we love and cherish. We like to give them presents for their birthdays of maybe just for no particular reason, but in time the “gifting” part becomes harder and harder.

Once you get to know a person and you’ve been through all the things he/she needs, likes, enjoys … you end up thinking what makes your presents special?

Today I am going to show you a little something that most of the time we don’t pay much attention to – the classical birthday card turned into a more fun and unique one.

DIY: Recycled Earrings

Created with Nokia Refocus

Once upon a time an Oriental-patterned blouse lived in my closet. It was fern-green and it had such a beautiful hand-stitched pattern on the front side and sleeves.

But as the years went by my blouse’s colour began to fade and I couldn’t wear it anymore. Such a sad, sad story you would think … but not entirely.

Want to know how I did it? Come and join me!
