This is my first ever entry. The fairy garden is a first try for me as well as the butterflies. The rocks are real..from my back yard. The butterflies are also a first. I made them using paper and glue, the reason it is a gift within a gift is because the butterflies are also lapel pins. Since my mother passed away last year, I will be giving this garden/pins to my oldest sister for mother's day this year. I am sorry that I don't have all of the before and after pictures.

That's lovely and it's also so nice that the butterflies are pins to use later too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
