Here at Belly Button we love nothing more than a fabulous party, and what could be more fabulous than having one to celebrate our Henries Platinum win!  This year our best-selling metallic foil embossed Platinum range received a prestigious Henries award for ‘Best Relations and Occasions’ and we couldn’t have been happier! We had a lovely party this morning to celebrate, and of course a party isn’t a party without tea and cake (which we had plenty of).IMG_0087

Our gorgeous display of Platinum cards, notebooks, gift wrap, gift bags and mugs.

Here at Belly Button we love anything glitzy and sparkly, so when we found out that the theme of the Henries this year was Calypso carnival we couldn’t wait to create some fabulous feather headdresses to wear on the night!

The lovely Jessica Button (above) made all of our crowns for us and we loved them so much that we thought we would let you know how to make one of your own.

We bought our feathers from a local crafty favourite, Fred Aldous!Screen shot 2013-10-21 at 13.39.51

Step 1 – Trim your feathers to the correct length and colour them using Dylon dye to the colour of your choice.

Step 2 – Fix the feathers (about 4) onto your tiara with some strong glue.

Step 3 – Make a feather trim to cover the bottom of the longer feathers. You can do this by using lots of smaller feathers and sticking them over the base of the tiara.

Step 4 – Decorate your headdress with as many jewels as you want to.

Once you have made your feather headdress you are all set for a fabulous evening!

As well as hand painting all of our beautiful Belly Button cards, Jessica also has her own shop selling beautiful handmade textiles and Bespoke greetings cards.
