Unfinished, But Here It Is!

I am so impatient, can ya tell?? I should just do like most and wait until the project is actually complete before unveiling it to the world, but I just can't help it!! I guess perhaps I'm soliciting opinions before it's complete.

This is going to be a baby shower gift that I'll be selling. The "nest" will hold a pair of handmade baby booties. I just know that there's a mom to be out there who would just die out to get this as a gift. I know I would!

This is a fold out card that I've had for years and years and it just hit me one day that this would be so cool as a crown of sorts. But how to make it keep its shape? Hmmmm I cut out a cardboard round and glued the card along the edges. I covered the bottom with a piece of sheet music and then I shredded some more sheet music pages to make the nest bedding.

The pink ribbon is from a vintage prom dress. I'll probably add some German glass glitter to this as well.



I'll be adding something to the bottom edge to give it a nice finish. Probably some string beads.





Here's a spot to put a name or whatever you might want to write on this little journaling block.







I think this is going to be adorable when its finished and I'll be sure to post a photo then. Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Cheers!
