Not that I think any of my family reads my blog, but just in case, I didn't post the things that I gave them.
So now that the gifts are given and the stress is over, I can share some of what I made with you.
Starting with this button tree. For mum. (I wrote all the kids names on certain of the buttons... you can kind of see it in the photos)
Corrugated cardboard is awesome. We bought some furniture from Ikea and so I have a seemingly endless source of the stuff so I have made books out of it, boxes and now art.
I used a craft knife to cut out the design of the tree and then peeled off the top layer of paper to reveal all the corrugated guts. Then I stuck on buttons.
