New paper project

Yes, got this idea from Karla at Karla's cottage. I just loved hers, so I had to do up some. This one above hangs in my craft studio.
I used vintage sheet music, old book pages, vintage buttons, tulle, tags and chipboard bases. I really had fun with this project.
Just get outside and find the twigs to complete the banner. I am really into bird things, but i loved what this represented. Our nest is the best!
This is one I made for my daughter Kendra, to hang in her kitchen. I love the little quote, "we have a great thing"


I attached the twigs with embroidery floss instead of glue or glue dots. It really works well for making somthing like this last on your paper projects!
