Hello crafty peoples...
Back again with another project for Gone Artsy!

GORGEOUS products at AWESOME prices... and if you do Bridal or Floral...
this is the place for you. The products are just stunning!

Helloooooooo everyone...
today I have created a stunning, vintage style book mark using some of the gorgeous products from Gone Artsy... these make wonderful gifts especially for those friends who love to read!
I of course used one of my favorite products on this... the Ivory Crochet Ruffle Stretch Lace. Next I ran a piece of the oh so cute Dainty Vintage English Trim w/Blue Roses down the middle and just hit each rose with a drop of hot glue. Using a jewelry finding kit to finish off the ends I next used the beautiful Large Cameo Charm to give it that extra special touch!!!

**NOTE- I made this approximately 12 inches in length... but you can do them even shorter and have an array of sizes to work with depending the size of reading material :)

~~**Words of Advice**~~

Hello Crafty friends...
This is a project I did for Gone Artsy... we did traditional wedding ideas for the DIY Bride!!!
Here I did an ADVICE BOX for the guests to leave heartfelt advice for the Bride and Groom.

I used a paper mache wine box to alter. I gessoed the entire box and wrapped it with some very cool flocked netting from Jennings Crafts Boutique. I created a beautiful fabric flower using an Ivory Crochet Ruffle Stretch LaceChiffon Flower TrimDusty Pink 4 Petal Flower Lace and finished it off with a beautiful Tri-Color Faux Pearl Flower for the center!!!

I wrapped the box with a  Long Floral Applique and a Fan Dangle Lace... added some pearl strands and wrapped the bottom edges with some vintage satin ribbon. One side I added a stunning Golden Peach Glass Rhinestone Bling.

To the top I used a gorgeous brooch to use as a knob to lift the lid off. Then using some scrabble tiles I added ADVICE and gessoed each tile some to give a shabby look to them!
