Lace and Fibers Box











Don't you just Love Lace? The old vintage lace that has just the touch of creamy color to it? That's what inspired my Lace bird box and gift cards.On Gingersnap Creations you can see lots of beautiful samples using Lace and fibers.
For my box I covered an old cigar box with lace paper, vintage lace pieces and torn music sheets to make a little nest for this sweet bird to perch atop. A little glitz with some glitter twigs. The cards were made using torn papers collaged and some bird images from Retro Cafe Arts. If a couple of these cards look familiar that's because they were published in the Christmas issue of Somerset Studios For info on how to make them check out the Christmas issue!
