Today I’m sharing a sweet little project I made for my BFF Heather for her birthday. It’s not actually until the 6th of January. Guess I’m early for once : )
I covered the little pot with torn strips of book page then inked it heavily and stamped a dot border at the bottom.
The little girl is a vintage image from Graphic’s Fairy. I trimmed off her top hat and gave her a party hat complete with glitter and a pom pom top. wings for her back make her a proper fairy. The super simple banner is just trimmed paper…inked and stamped and glittered of course. It’s held up with silver wire. I used a chenille stem as the “handle”
I made half of a paper rosette to help hold in the paper filler in the pot. for the rim I knew I wanted to add real vintage buttons so I layered them onto this super beautiful trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon . I also added a few little tags…one craft brown and one with a “6” for her birthdate.
I added lot’s of paper filler to hide the foam insert…reminds me of a little nest : ) There are two generous sized bows there on the left that I created using Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon also from RRR. I secured it to the foam with 2 pretty star topped pins.
Not to worry about spoiling the surprise…I was too excited and gave it to her already. Tee Hee.
