emergency gifts...and blatant plagiarism...

...sometimes...in cases of emergencies...its great to know there are people out there who will inspire me to recreate the things they have already taken the time to think up...and forgotten Birthday gifts is one of those occasions...so a huge thanks to the wonderfully bonkers and awesomely talented Sheena Douglass for the inspiration behind these wristbands. and if you haven't seen her or her blog...check her out here...you won't be sorry!

these are made really simply by adding a hitch fastener to a length of grungepaper {although i'm planning some leather ones next week...watch this space...} and colouring with inks, embossing, glossy accents and stickles...if you want it to all be water~safe...just use that Marine Varnish i'm always waffling on about...this means you can wear it...and still wash up!! ***as if*** lol

apologies for the slightly dodgy photos...i did manage to get his Nibs to model them for you...but of course...he couldn't hang around...something about a world cup??? ;0)

anyhoooo...hope you like them...and even more importantly...i hope the Birthday girls like them :0)

Ooh they are lovely Alix, I've been thinking about making something similar myself, just finalising the design... so to speak :)
