One of the essentials of succeeding in the business world is the ability to multi-task and I do that in the art world. While chatting on the phone with friends, I got my little clover craft iron out and individually pressed every single petal. I even timed myself. It took 2 minutes to press a single flower and this little bouquet had a ton of flowers! But it was well worth the effort as the final results are just amazing!
The hanky was once just a white hanky that I stamped, inked and glittered. Those are old perfume boxes that I altered and have blogged in the past. The tiny baby ballet shoes were a more recent find at a thrift store. But the bouquet...for a dime...is the finishing touch that this little collection needed!
Vintage paper flowers are one of my favorite things and to find this bouquet for a dime just made my day. But I have to wonder how many others would have tossed it into the trash? I'm so grateful that there are some who are willing to put things into their garage sales just on the chance that one person's trash is another person's treasure!!!
