A Sweet Little Fabric Project

I would like to show you a sweet little fabric project
using my new fabric, old book pages, cardstock and buttons



find a shape you would like to use for this project.
I have used this sweet oval scallopet piece of cardstock

cut out the shape from old book pages



and glue them on cream cardstock



cut out same shape in fabric.



three different fabric pieces in three different sizes


put the fabric on top of the paper piece you just made


and ad a vintage button in the middle


make tiny holes on top and ad string



and you´ll have a sweet little summer banner


all ready to hang




I really like this little summer banner
Sweet, romantic, shabby chic
and in the most beautiful soft colors.
I hope you like it too.
Have a lovely creative day.

Flea market finds

I went to the lokal flea market today and I was lucky to find a few great things.
These two very very old books





Leather on the outside and with really old Danish typing inside



made i Copenhagen year 1877


some old playing cards


these with only numbers on - in the most beautiful mint green color


an old box with these sweet, sweet tiny bird cards.
Aren´t they just cute...

Though it all would be great to use in any artwork or art journals ect.
My plan is to make some kids out of pages from those old books
together with those sweet green number cards
and the tiny bird cards aswell.


I also found these funny spanish cards

in the box with their original paper still wrapped around



I haven´t decided what to do with them - find them quite funny though
Any suggestions would be appreaciated...

I´m currently working on my next blog giveaway
- only a few more days :D
so stay tuned.

Have a lovely sunday.
