As I've now given this to Mum for her birthday I can show you the items I showed recently on the It's A Creative World blog.
I bought some wooden pen holders and memo block holders quite a while ago and they've been sat waitnig for me to do something with them:
As Mum loves nature especially birds I decided to use the new 7Gypsies Conservatory paper to decorate both items. I used Mod Podge to stick the papers on the items and cut out extra birds from one of the papers to stick randomly over the papers. I also used alphabet stickers to spell out "pens" and "notes". Once the items were decorated I used 3 coats of Mod Podge to cover them.
