Do you want to try something creative? Try something crafty? Do you fancy being part of the new craft revolution but don’t know where to start? Do you want to make something special and unique to celebrate a special occasion? Amy’s Button Box will provide you with a Bespoke Craft Experience, perfect for Hen Parties, Birthday Celebrations and Baby Showers.
What do I mean by Bespoke Craft Experiences:
Bespoke: Rather than just raiding my rather extensive craft room for materials for your event all fabrics/beads/crystals/findings are chosen specifically for your event based on your requirements, this way you’ll be sure to take away products that truly reflect you! Each Experience is designed specifically for you, we can add/remove elements (such as Vintage China Hire, backdrop hire, dressing of the room etc) and adjust the price according to your needs. I can even build in a ‘Finishing’ element where I take your started projects, finish them off
Craft: This part’s simple – if it can be made by hand (or sewing machine) then I can plan an Experience based around most crafts for you and your friends.
Experience: “an event or occurrence which leaves an impression on someone” (Oxford English Dictionary Definition)
From initial contact, through the planning and duration of your event, right up until your event ends (and hopefully afterwards) I want you and your friends to have a great time and to feel truly valued. I want you to feel cared for and listened to! I want to leave a really positive impression on you and your friends. How do I do this? I respond to queries from clients quickly and promptly, I encourage meeting up over a cup of tea and a slice of cake (I’m paying!) to design your event and discuss what you want and need from your event, meeting up also means I get to get a feel for your personality, likes and dislikes. Then throughout the planning process I’ll use a variety of questionnaires to find out all about you and your guests, including your crafting skill levels so I can facilitate your event as effectively as possible (remember I’m a fully trained teacher so I’m happy to work with complete novices! If I can get teenage boys to sew I can do anything!). I’ll set up a Pinterest page for you and your guests to Pin ideas on in advance of the event so that I can see what it is that you’re hoping to achieve and if you’d like I can set up a private Group Facebook page where you can all discuss the event and we can share ideas. For the event I can prepare playlists – these are perfect for the Vintage themed events like BeRitzy and the soon to be released BeGlamorous events. At the end of the event I will lovingly gift wrap your work ready for you to take home or if you’ve opted for a more challenging event such as BeJewelled or BeQuilted I’ll take the item home, do all the finishing and get it gift-wrapped and posted back to you!
I hope the above gives you a better idea of what Button Box is all about and what I’m hoping to achieve with this little business of mine!
If you’d like to find out more keep scrolling down or click on the Meet Me link at the top of the page and we’ll arrange to meet up for a cup of tea and a slice of cake to discuss your ideas.
Where will these craft experiences take place I hear you cry? I’m pretty flexible, I don’t have any fixed venue but I source venues (tearooms, cake shops etc) near you (some venues will incur an additional cost), we can craft at your home, or if you’re renting a space for a Hen/Birthday celebration I can come along there. If you live local to Fleet, Hampshire I can hire the workshop space of Bash! Inspiration, which is a great space for parties and the mainline train into London is only a 10-15minute walk away, with trains taking from 40 minutes to get into London, Waterloo.
I am happy to travel up to 90 minutes from Fleet, Hampshire. (Dependent on the distance Fuel will be added to your overall quote)
Options currently include:
♥BeQuilted♥ – One of the newest (and I think one of my favourites!). Get together a group of girlfriends and customise quilts squares that I will then take away and assemble into a beautiful quilt and send back to the main guest. Perfect for Hen Dos, Baby Showers and other special occasions.
♥BeRitzy♥ – The first of my Vintage Inspired Experiences. Use ribbons, lace, feathers, repurposed jewellery, beads, sequins etc. to make your own 1920s inspired headbands, fascinators or combs. The finished product would be great to wear to a 1920s night or if your having a Roaring 20s style wedding, they would be great for the Bridal party and guests to wear with the rest of their outfits!
♥BeJewelled♥ – Adorn a pair of beloved shoes in Swarovski crystals and other sparkly delights!
♥BeInspired♥ – Perfect for a crafty bride-to-be who wants to learn a variety of crafts to use on their wedding day – I’m talking paper and fabric pom-poms and flowers, paper rosettes, planning a colour scheme, if you’ve seen it on Pinterest we can make it!
♥BeUnique♥ – Create your own piece of Heirloom jewellery by upcycling some of your own jewellery treasures. Great for creating custom jewellery to wear on your big day or to make jewellery items to give to friends as gifts.
♥BeNaughty♥ – Customise a pair of knickers for a big night out or your big day!
♥BeCrafty♥ – Focus on learning a particular craft (you choose the craft!)
♥BeGlamorous – a 50s Inspired treat!
