Tea bag booklet

Hello and welcome to the Blue Fern Studios blog.
Today I'm sharing a little tea bag booklet I've made using the Bird Waltz collection.

I used tea filters which I tea died. I glued two filters/bags together, stacked them and
 sewed in the middle to get a little book.
This book is 3 x 4,5 inches (7,5 x 10 cm) with 30 pages.

I decorated each page. I used the bird Waltz papers, ephemera, charms, stamps, 
chipboards and laces.

I sewed paper clusters and made little pockets for tags and ephemera.
On some of the edges  I've added butterfly wings.

On this page I made a bellyband. 

I have a flip through video of all the pages on my you tube channel;

Products used:

The Bird Waltz papers
The Bird Waltz ephemera
Dragonfly chipboard
Floral lace chipboard
Song Bird stamp
Bird Waltz Stamp
Radiant flower charm
Lace 15

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Henriëtte.

Flower seed pockets with Garden Life papers

Hello and happy Saturday. Do you have a family member or friend that loves gardening?
Today I'm sharing a fun little project that could be used as a gift to that person.
I made these three seed pockets.

The pockets are criss cross cards. 
I used the Garden Life paper collection to make the pockets and inserts.
This collection is perfect for this occasion.

I also made 3 inserts, you can use these to write a little message on. 
They have a little tab on the top.
There's still room left for the seed packets.

I embellished the front of the pockets with die cuts and 
cut outs from the patterned papers.

Thanks for visiting the Blue Fern Studios blog.

Hugs, Henriëtte.

Cirque Artisanal

Hello! I would like to share a layout that features the Remnants Collection, using the page called Vignette. I love this sheet because of the purple shades and white design overlay. 

I started at the top with a mask chipboard painted red and used lace #3 to give the feeling of being "under the big top". 

I used burnt copper glitter to dress up the eye mask, crown and edge of the "fun" calling card, all from the ATC Drama set. 

I painted a chipboard arrow flourish copper and patina blue and finished the page with the whimsical button and flags! 

Thank you for looking!
Blessings, Bonnie

Happy with my Bow Tie!

Today I am sharing a fall decoration I made with scraps of my Bird Waltz paper. 

I used strips of the "Dragonfly Opus" sheet to cover the front and ends of my crate box. I added teal paint to the edges and stamped the ends with the "Country Garden" clear stamp. 

I fussy cut the blue bird from the "Overture" page. 

I stained the "Radiance" bloom with an orange ink and placed a coin button in the center. 

I created a bow tie for the crazy pumpkin from more leftovers of the "Overture" page. What a wonderful little box to display my photo! 

Thanks for looking!
