Playing with paper~

I made this little gift card holder recently. I tell ya, it was like pulling teeth for me to work on it.... its hard to put any effort into something knowing full well its going to be thrown away the first chance they get..... Anywho, I took two vintage bingo cards, distressed them... tore one and glued it on top of the other to make a pocket to hold a gift card... I had plans to do much-much more to this piece... but you know...I used an existing pocket envelope that I embellished with vintage lace and 3 tissue paper flowers that I made using a vintage dress pattern. The bingo card slipped in perfectly~The hardest part was essentially tossing in the garbage using 3 mother of pearl buttons and a piece of vintage lace... cause YOU KNOW..... it IS going in the trash.... *sigh*.... I think I need to go drape some vintage lace around my neck and run my hands through some of my buttons now~

It is beautiful! I would not throw it away. Love the buttons!

I do not create for people who will not appreciate....or I at least scale it down.

Hi Cheryl,
It's great and the paper flowers are perfect. I don't know how to make them.
Your tea party was fun and LOVE the photos of the children. Looks like they enjoyed it.

It is so pretty, how could anybody throw that away? I couldn't do it, I couldn't make something with my little treasures knowing it would end up in the trash. Nope.
