I have been wanting to make some small thank you presents for a while now. I have been hampered in this by too many distractions which I have now said no to, and a lack of ideas of what to make. I wanted/needed them to be something I could make fairly quickly, with bits and pieces I had in the house and they had to be small enough to send through the post without breaking the bank. A while ago I pinned a tutorial which I realised would be perfect as I had some brooch backs in the house! So not wanting to pin something that I would never make I practiced what I preached.
In the end these weren't made that quickly partly because I have so little time for any crafts or creating at the moment and partly because they are quite fiddly. This could be because I made these with six petals whereas the original suggests five but I thought the pattern of petals with the materials I was using looked better with six, the next one I make I will try five.
I have punched holes in some card and painted on the word Thank you and there you have it a card with a wee present attached. Now I just need to get them in the post.............
