Hi guys, im quite new to Craftster, and ive finally bitten the bullet and decided to post a finished object up here... i hope you like it!

Ive made it for my stitch and bitch group here in Tokyo, as we are having a (late - due to many people returning home for the holidays) secret santa.

I made the stamps i used for the back (my initials) and the heart, star and cupcake from erasers cut with a craft knife... (a japanese friend told me about this craft - very cool, and easy to try!).... The pearl bead is used as a button with plaited embroidery thread as a hook to keep the book closed.

Thanks for looking Smiley

awww, it's so adorable!

I love the cupcakes  Cheesy
I think i love cupcakes in general, but your stamps are very very cute.  I am currently convincing myself that i need a needle book.  And more than 2 needles come to think of it...
