Butterfly Trio

My daughter Sarah makes the most beautiful glass bead jewelry! For Mother's Day, she made each of her grandmas a necklace that reflected their personal style using one of their favorite colors.

Because the necklaces were so lovely and Sarah took such care in making them, I wanted her to have something pretty to put each necklace in.

Using recycled candy tins, Sarah and I made a little trinket box for each necklace with the Unity Stamp Co. Butterfly Beauty set, patterned paper from SU! and Basic Grey, Stickles, ribbon and bling. The boxes were super easy to make and the grandmas were simply delighted with their special gifts.

It's been so neat to see how well Sarah's beading and my stamping compliment each other. I think I could even get into doing beading, but I'm trying to resist. ;)

Hope your week has been a good one. I'm sure glad Friday is upon us, it's been a hectic week at work and I'm ready for the weekend again. It's going to be another good one! My husband, Chris and our two little ones, Jacob and Sarah are getting baptized at our Saturday evening church service! Very exciting! I'll definately be back to share the details on Sunday.

Until then, I hope you have a fabulous weekend! ~Patti

Sarah and Patti, you are both so creative! These are beautiful. I'm sure the Grandmas appreciated all of the thought and work that went into their special gifts!

These are just beautiful -- the necklaces and boxes!! I'm sure the gifts were extra special in that you and your daughter worked together on them.

How exciting that your two youngsters are getting baptized!

Very lovely! I gave one of Sarah and Macie's necklaces to my daughter and she enjoys wearing it. It's such a great hobby, and the tins you made are adorable.

I love these tins...we have a key chain for my mom, and I think I will decorate a tin for her little gem.

What a fab! idea.
