It's my friends birthday soon , and I didn't want to spend too much money, so instead of wasting money on a card , I decided to make one . Its surprising what different materials and old bits of card you can find lying around the house .  I didn't need to buy anything as I already had all the materials ! 

As you can see ..its soso simple ! The design on the inside of envelopes is so detailed , I might use envelopes for craft a lot more in the future !

Pebbles are great . Don't get me wrong . But this decoration really does add character to it and makes it all much more exciting ! Its simple and easy and super cheap , so why not ! 
You will need :
  •  A clean reasonably sized pebble 
  • A sharpie 
  • Some nail polish if you would like to add a little bit of color to yours 
  • A pencil
  • A print out of a mandala pattern from the internet ( see the bottom of the page for some examples  )
The steps are so simple , I almost feel silly writing them down ! 
  1.  Draw the mandala pattern onto your pebble with pencil . 
  2. Go over this with sharpie 
  3. If you want to add some colour into the spots , then apply very carefully with nail polish .
Tadah ! I never knew a pebble could look so cool !
