Giveaway Day!

Have you heard about the giveaway day at Sew, Mama, Sew? When I heard about it it seemed like so much fun I wanted to play too! I'm planning to open an Etsy shop in July (post-summer holidays. No point opening a shop just to go on holidays, right?) and I thought this giveaway would be a perfect chance for you to get a sneek peek at what I'm working on for my store...



Included in this giveaway is a mini matchbook scrapbook, a set of 4 mini cards in a matchbox and 4 star shaped thumbtacks, all featuring beautiful chiyogami paper! I'm happy to ship anywhere so don't be shy! Leave a comment by May 31st for your chance to win this set. Come back June 1st to see if you've won (and maybe I'll have my next tutorial up by then!)
