March in the Etsy shop

March is such a fun month for creating. I love to use the soft pastel colors for Easter creations.
Here is a pink and white set of trim tags embellished with a beautiful vintage brooch.
A very sweet simple white bunny I found and embellished with a tulle and ribbon skirt, a bracelet of pearls and some soft pink vintage lace bows for her ears.
Vintage buttons displayed on vintage borders printed out on the computer.
A lovely soft brown coffee filter banner embellished with pink satin ribbon and Marilyn Healey's vintage glitter glass stars.

A mini composition notebook that has been covered with a fabric skirt that i found from goodwill, I then cut it into strips and then sewed it into frills to cover the book added some vintage cream lace and a sparkle star.

Happy shopping in My etsy shop this March!!

Book Page Roses

Recently a bride-to-be contacted me through Etsy to ask if I could create a bridal bouquet, boutonniers, bride's maid bouquets and flower girl pins for a geek-chic wedding. She is getting her PhD in Literature and does not like the normal frilly flowers.

To make these roses I used the same concept as I would to make a crepe paper rose with individual petals. Cutting out center petals and heart shaped larger petals for the outer rose.
I curl each side of the petal and wrap them around a floral wire or pipe cleaner and wrap them with floral tape

The result is a lucsious rose head that measures about 3.5 inches across on a stem of about 7 inches long.
