I had a ton of these little baskets from a left over project and knew they’d be perfect for this! I made a few of these the other night and I absolutely love them. I used bird gravel for the stuffing which made these nice and heavy. Used some of my old lace scraps, one of those fabric circles, and one of my lovely antique buttons. I’ll keep you updated as I work on some other styles!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I’ve been so very busy but I’ve finally brought you an update on the pin cushions. I’ve just gotten a huge lot of vintage fabric circle scraps and have listed some in the shop as well. There’s tons of beautiful patterns and I can’t wait to get to work! I’ll be picking up some stuffing later this week and hope to be posting another update soon after. Have a lovely week everyone!
It has recently been brought to my attention that there are not a lot of good, easy-to-find sources for inspiring projects using vintage ephemera. So I’ve decided to take it upon myself to bring you a new idea featuring a different ephemera item every 1-2 weeks! After all, even the most creative of us require a little inspiration every once in a while.
Today I whipped up these little tags in about 30 minutes using items I already had around the studio.
I took an antique bingo card (available at https://www.etsy.com/listing/103357353/antique-bingo-card-nostalgic-lot) and cut it in half each way, leaving four approximately equal rectangles.
I then took each piece and decorated it differently. Ta-da. It really is that easy!
From Left to Right: #1 I used Mod Podge, an old recipe, and an old button. #2 Mod Podge, an antique stamp, and antique french Monogram trim. #3 Green watercolor paint, Mod Podge seal, and stars punched from an old playing card. #4 Black glitter glue and red water color paint.
I punched each with my 1/8″ hole punch and tied them with awesome sari ribbon. I stuck with a Christmas theme because you can never have too many Christmas tags on hand!
