Just for me!

I took some very good advice from my friend Tara Orr. She once told me that "sometimes you just need to craft for yourself, no DT deadline, no specified product to use... just something for you". That's what I did! I actually made 5 of these pretties for my Christmas tree. I have a "thing" about ornaments being in sets of 5, 7 or 9 - all exactly the same.
The round crochet doilies and foam balls I had bought on clearance from Michaels last Winter and the cameos are The Girl's Paperie. The cameos are actually buttons, so I threaded the seam binding through (2 strips) and tied a bow - no glue required! I bought the seam binding off Etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Bluebirdlane because I was too lazy to tint and crinkle some myself, LOL. I love them and since I got really good sales on all the materials, they didn't cost me much more than $3 each to make. I'm, thinking these would look pretty with Bo Bunny or Prima Trinkets too! Hmm, now to find more doilies :)
