Topic: Scrap Recovery
I started a new category in the topic headings: Scrap Recovery. This I will use for those projects I make by recycling old calendars, junk mail, magazines, paint chips, and other stuff.
Today, I am opening the category with these birds from last year's calendar. I used a Nestability die to cut them out and then found this pleasing arrangement quite by accident. I cut the brown cardstock corner brackets with a Cuttlebug die and colored in the inner elements with a gold marker.
I used actual thread through the itty bitty holes in the button brads and pushed them through holes in the felt flowers. These are mounted to the card with glue dots. I added sticky-back half pearls to the corner brackets.
Last step was to place a cardstock sticker inside for the text.
