My daughters were invited to a birthday party with only 2 days notice and we were broke until a few days later. What to give the 10-year-old birthday girl?
I came up with this. It is made from really thick leftover corrugated cardboard that my hubby brought home from work for me to use in another project (which I will post at a later date).

Finished:

My daughters helped me paint and prep a couple of the embellishments so they liked it too.

Progress shot:

Wrapped the edges so they would be flat instead of showing the corrugated insides.

I might make us some when I get a chance. After Halloween...

This is lovely!  It is great that you involved your children in the making of it and that you saved moola!

This is so beautiful! And perfect for a 10 year old girl. Or for a 36 year old mom! I want one! Love the feathers.

"To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
