1  Prettified match boxes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by faerybird on: May 07, 2011 12:29:55 PM
I usually keep a matchbook on my coffee table to have it near for candle lighting.  I thought they were rather ugly, and I had scraps left over from other paper crafting projects, so I prettied some up.  These are a few of them.

2  Pretty little birds in Weddings and Bridal Showers by faerybird on: April 30, 2011 05:39:35 PM
My wedding is vintage, black and white, and dove themed.  This unusual combination means I've been doing a lot of handcrafting as well as thrifting and gathering things for it.  I wanted some doves to incorporate into my reception decor.  I thought I'd nest them in fanciful objects, so I used a lot of vintage things.

For the tall dove, I took apart some artificial flowers and put them back together into one big flower.  I used this is the the base for the nest.  It's perched on top of an old wooden candlestick I painted black.

The vintage urn is filled with Spanish moss, and has streamers of beaded trim and new and vintage lace.

The teacup, which I think I might modify a little still, was done largely the same way as the candlestick.
