Last year, the most gorgeous Christmas card I received by far was a paper ‘butterfly collection’ by Green Grass Design from Eye Candy’s Freda Isingoma. (Eye Candy, for those who don’t know, is a fab chain of eye and brow bars. I like to pop into the shop on Kloof Street to have my brows tinted and sometimes get the occassional thread.)
But ja… back to the butterflies…
Opening the envelope reveals a laser cut card, three beautiful paper butterflies, three pearly-headed pins and a trio of ‘glue dots’.
You’re to stick the dots onto any surface (they’re not tacky enough to rip off wallpaper or anything; don’t worry) and stick the pins into them, effectively pinning your butterflies to the wall.
I know it’s kind of random but I think it’s so pretty and novel I thought it deserved a mention.
P.S. Jozi girls, just so you know, Eye Candy’s brow and lash bar in Woolies Sandton is now open seven days a week!
