Here are a few of my earlier paper projects. 'LOVE' gift tag banner, 'TIME FOR TEA' pennants and a posie holder made from vintage sheet music.
I just made this shabby 'old' file folder a few days ago. It's made from a few layers of brown paper bag. I found a whole stack of old ones in my mom's garage. They already had that wonderful aged look I love. I decorated it with paint, pages from a vintage book, images from a recycled calendar and a wonderful picture of the French author Collette from a fabulous book about French writers I picked up for .80 cents.
I think this was the first set of banner tags I ever made and it's still my favorite.
My little teacup fairy lives in my favorite mini teacup.
She's also made from vintage books I found at my favortie thrift shop.
Her little friend is close by waiting for a new dress and wings.
Another recent project I posted for Cindy's Creative Spirit challenge. Made from vinatge sheet music, dress pattern paper and a vintage image freebie from Somerset magazine.
And since my thoughts have already turned to Fall and Halloween here are spooky tags made from a corrugated board box I salvaged from my friends at Tuesday Morning. Thanks for letting me share.
Visit The French Cupboard for lots more pretty paper things.
Today I'm grateful for.....
Paper, glue and glitter!
