Create some little lucky birds from paper, and then thread them onto a piece of twine to create a cute garland. String them alone on a loop of twine, and hang them on a branch to create a cute table top decoration in a vase.
As a card maker, I get a lot of my inspiration for my projects from things around me. It could be colors, textures, wallpaper, food….I love it when something stops me in my tracks and I have to quickly write down an idea from it. For today’s project, I was inspired by these vintage-style post cards I’ve had in my drawer for ages. I don’t use them, I just like to look at them, LOL! They have always reminded me of something a grandmother would have. Very comforting and happy.
