The idea for the bags and books came from watching Anice's recent appearance on telly demonstrating Funky Seasons, and Jozza had made a wonderful black and white bag and book with her youngest daughter in - so thank you Jozza for the inspiration! And also thank you to Lynsey for expertly binding the little books and for the brew!
I tend to associate people with colours and went for a theme based upon the colour collections within the Funky Seasons cd, which, I must say, never fails to inspire me and it must be my most favourite cd!
The template for the bags are on the cd and I printed on the reverse of the card with the contrasting pattern, and they were really easy to make!
For Jade, I went for green and purple.
I've printed the sentiments on the books onto vellum which read 'Just a little something to say thank you!' and then layered onto the disc. I hand wrote the names on the bags. All the bags and books have been embellished with ribbons and fibres - the books I will show in more detail on another post as this one is already a bit picture heavy!
Rachel has already got hers as she's on holiday for Samuel's last week. She really liked it!
