Upcycled whimsical martini glass.

Oh this was so enjoyable to do. I was inspired by Anna Corba's Interactive DVD Book labelled "Vintage Paper Crafts with Anna Corba". I used vintage papers from the early 1900's. This would look lovely in sewing room used for buttons or pins, in the office used for paper clips or as she suggested to use for a candy dish. The paper is on the outside which means the inside can easily be cleaned. Will show the others over the course of the next year.

Vintage sheet music bookmark with handmade tassel.

I made this from vintage sheet music that was about 100 years old. Then ran through the cuttlebug to give it some texture before stamping it with bird. Finished it off with a handmade tassel. Stay posted for more bookmarks this winter. CLICK ON PICTURE TO SEE EMBOSSING.

Handled storage wooden gift boxes.

Painted, stamped and tissue decoupaged this box before adding bows with my own glass pendant. These are great for storing music cd's, bathroom necessities or gift cards.

Just playing with mini autumn flower arrangement.

I indeed was just playing by adding a stamp I created with Photoshop from some dried flowers for the background. This was the last summer bouquet.

Mini tissue holders for the purse etc.

I was tired of not having a place to keep my tissue packs for the purse etc. So I made this one from Tyvek. Stamped it and used a double ribbon closure so it's easy to put the kleenex in. Will post some of the others I designed at a later date.
