Hello, Baby!

I don't think that I ever shared...
This so sweet wooden owl "welcome baby" hanger that I made with
SIMPLE STORIES'
"Hello, Baby" Collection!  If you love soft, vintage-looking colors
and whimsical details, then you will love this collection for baby girl or boy!

I found the wooden owl shape at Hobby Lobby; it's a substantial piece of wood, measuring
1/4" thick.  It also comes with the cut-out pieces, which I also covered in paper.  
For the eyes I used two scalloped canvas stickers and then punched two different
sizes of circles.  Simple Stories also has enamel dots to go with the collections!
These made a nice accent to the eyes and centers of the flowers.

 I punched and layered some flowers and then added a felt flowers to the center of each.  
For a nice-finished look, I wrapped the edge of the wood with baker's twine.  
Two eye-hooks to the top and I was able to thread through some muslin ribbon for hanging :)
Now, wouldn't this be precious as a welcome door hanging?
I have it, along with several mini albums and crepe paper fringe for sale in my Etsy Shop!

Enjoy a beautiful week!

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
