Woooo Hoooo! It's the weekend! (this is the 2nd post today. scroll down, please, for my Bugaboo guest post)
I am excited to be the Guest Designer over at My Sheri Crafts! the theme for this fortnight is "Let's Go 3D". I am combining this project with my post for Really Reasonable Ribbon, especially since I use Really Reasonable Ribbons on almost every project I make. ;) thank you, Sheri, for asking me to be a guest with your fun blog! :)
Here in the United States we are celebrating Mother's Day tomorrow, so I thought it would be fun to share a little project I made for our neighbor who is expecting her second little girl anytime in the next week.
I started with an old fruit basket that hubby & I found on one of our adventures antiquing. a coat of acrylic paint, sponging with a few more, then several squirts of different shades of glimmer mist, and I was ready to decorate!
The edges were trimmed with a ruffled crepe paper border topped with Priscilla white crochet lace and wild rose grosgrain ribbon. the same wild rose grosgrain also formed the bow, when combined with pink burlap string. you can see that I also used the grosgrain and burlap string on the tag to continue the theme.
the flower cluster is formed with a pink chrysanthemum, pink aster daisies, and sweetheart blossoms, a mini sweetheart blossom decorates the tag.
The tag was also sprayed with glimmer mists. the adorable baby image is from Free Pretty Things For You and papers are from the Authentique Crush collection. (I made it all to match the card from back at this post.)
the basket is filled with diaper bag sized essentials every new mom will need. and she loved it when I delivered it several days ago! :)
Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! :)
don't forget Really Reasonable Ribbon's current challenge going on, too!
