I love to make gifts, and I think the icing on the cake are the gift cards! I recently was in Office Supply and purchased a bag of tags thinking, "I'll use these for something", and this is the something! I took moist used coffee grounds and rubbed them on both sides and string and let them dry. From an old children and victorian books ( which I pick up from thrift stores) I cut out little pictures, words, and quotes and started decorating the tags. (I's fun to keep the pictures and quotes and etc.in separate little old boxes for future use.) To finish them off I add bits of lace, ribbon and tiny buttons. Then on the back you can add your message.
Hello, my name is Marlynne Joy Snare (pronounced Marilyn) and I am really excited to be jumping into this new world of "blogging". I call myself a "Folk Artist" and enjoy creating with fabric, paint, wood and all types of natural materials. It will be fun to share some of these inside and outside the house projects with you too!
