  1. Fabulous idea... thanks for the tutorial!

  2. Love that paper, Andrea! It reminds me of the sweetest vintage wallpaper. I love how you distressed the heck out of its edges, too. ;)

  3. Those flowers are the cutest! Love the burlap strip too :)

  4. Love the twine flowers. Would you share a tutorial on how you (Guy) made them. I saw the post on The Ribbon Carousel, but it didn't explain how the flowers were made. Thanks.

  5. Wow, this is beautiful Andrea, really cool flowers :)

  6. I adore what you have done so you better bet I am going to check this out -- thanks a bunch!!!!!

  7. You do good things with that burlap ribbon! I'd be at a loss as for how to use it.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I always enjoy reading them and appreciate the kind words!
