Since Tabitha's blog is Creative Wings, I thought the little lace wings were just the thing. I used vintage lace, seam binding, ribbon and velvet cording for the streamers. Since she hosted this and the Very Merry Unbirthday Cake swap, I sent along a few hostess goodies.
I wanted to make some kind of container for the things I was sending, and had read about using clear Contact Paper to create a sort of "fabric" with paper. I decorated a couple of pages from a music book and then covered those and an undecorated page (for the bottom and sides) with the Contact Paper. I then cut it to size and sewed it all together. The flap is a pale rose-patterned fabric, also covered with Contact Paper, with a vintage millinery rose attached. The post card graphic is from GalleryCat on Etsy.
Tabitha seemed pleased with what I sent and sent me the sweetest e-mail. Her package for me should arrive tomorrow, and I can hardly wait to see. I'll be sharing that in an upcoming post, of course!
