I created this Valentine creation for my swap partner Mercedes for our Valentine Tin Swap over at Bliss Angels
I wrapped the tin in a vintage dinner napkin, tied with organza ribbon and finished off with a paper flower glittered with some pink glitter goodness.
I included a vintage postcard with a smaller tag that I stained with coffee and stamped with one of my favorite bird stamps.
This tag is kept in the pocket on the back of the tin.
I started off with bird tag I had created.
Here is a vintage brooch with a paper flower glued to the center.
The bird sits upon a white birch stick perch, surrounded by lots of pretty lace and trims and pieces of cut doilies. I just love it when I am able to use small scraps of cut up items that I refuse to throw away. I am brainstorming on how to use up all these little scraps that I have around, baskets and baskets full. I think I have figured something out, I will share if it comes to pass. What do you do with all of your scraps??
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.
