New awesome Bird Collage kits

These were so much fun to put together!

First I ripped pages from an old encyclopedia. the pages are brittle and stained a perfectly wonderful sienna color.
Next I ripped pages from an old bird book which is full of awesome graphics.

Lovin the sparrows!

I tucked the papers into a cello envelope and filled it with handpunched crowns, prim measuring tape, antique lace, and some champagne dyed ribbon.

Crowns hand punched from vintage flocked ribbon!

The ribbon is hand dyed with non toxic acrylic paints!

Lastly I wrapped it with this super cool vintage jute braided ribbon.

Selling the jute in 4 yard lengths!

Doesn't this make you want to craft something right now!

All this just went up on my etsy store, as well as other neat stuff.

Hi, Hope,
I've missed you around here. You are sooo creative in putting these packages together. I love this one. I just started organizing my vintage laces & trims into my Notions shop, but it doesn't look nearly as cute as your stuff.
Have a relaxing Sunday. ~Natalie
