Botanical gift box cover.

This is the top of a gift box which I did in various green Glimmer Mists by Tattered Angels. For the window I did the botanical theme, concealing the pressed drieds and music paper. Punched 2 holes in bottom of window area to tie the hand made music ribbon. This makes a wonderful gift box where I often place one of my journals, a bookmark, a glass pendant, gift tag, kleenex pack and a music title clothespin of which all are handmade. The box can be used by the recipient for storing other things later. Watch for more ways that I have decorated these gift boxes.

Tea time tray using designer dinner tissue napkins.

I made this tray using several designer tissue napkins cut up and placed around the words "Tea Time" which I printed on tissue also. Sealed the entire surface with several coats of Golden's Polymer Varnish with UVLS (Matte). Put the "ball" feet on to give it a little extra look. Finished the back with a crackle finish.

Clothespin art using vintage song titles

These are song titles from a vintage sheet music magazine approximately 75 to 100 years old. I attached a magnetic strip to the back. Drilled a tiny hold on front and added some music charms of which some I made with wire.
