Bridal Shower Gifties

Auntie Z is hosting a bridal shower luncheon for her soon to be daughter-in-law tomorrow.
Oh what fun! I offered to make some jewelry for the giftie give-aways!

It's been ages since I was into my bead box and I decided to make some earrings.
I made three pairs of earrings but wasn't sure how to package them.
Here are the earrings...

I put the earrings on little cards I made from scrapbook paper. I sewed two pieces together and then sewed little envelopes with the coordinating paper. I added buttons and embroidery floss to make the closures.

Funny...Most often I can't just complete something without major plans or patterns. HobbyHubby even called to see if I was getting all worked up about the jewelry. (He knows me so well!) I tend to fret about jewelry construction; maybe obsess would more properly describe my state of mind. Not today!! I'm just as happy and fret free as can be! Maybe it had something to do with the turkey I ate yesterday! HA!

Happy Hobbies!
