Rustic Wedding Centrepieces, Wedding Favour-Bonbonniere-Keepsake

Each small box (wedding favour/bonbonniere/keepsake) is repurposed from to 2 pages of a 1977 edition old dictionary so is the heart confetti.  There will only be 425 of these boxes made from this book.  The pages are laminated before the box is made.  The jars are Fowler preserving jars, with twine flowers and hessian/burlap.  The tea light is covered in Washi tape. The tin is washed and has a small glass of water in it for the flowers, so it won't rust.

Flower Power

Well I have been busy crafting and of course op shopping so once again time has got away from me. 
I have enjoyed sourcing the paper to make these flowers.  They are made from sheet music, old books and scraps of paper remnants.
These are made of sheet music and recycled remnants of wall paper.  I also made the jute flower centres.  Embellishments include an old watch face cover, and button. 

These flowers used sheet music, road map and even an old Australian Penny.

The book on the bottom is the book used to make these flowers.

It's been awhile..... it's been too long!

Well it has been a while since my last post. It feels like only a couple of weeks, but my last post was 1st September.... where has the time gone?

I have been busy "doing nothing" as I like to say, which really means I'm busy with life, just every day stuff along with trying to sell the property and all that goes along with that. I have also been enjoying my crafts again. I have become a Pinterest fan and have been completely inspired, as you can see by the items I have for sale on Etsy. My newest favouritist thing at the moment is re-purposing old sheet music and making placemats and flowers, that will be my next post, but I have also finally decided what to do with some of my vintage tea towel collection. I have not wanted to cut them in case someone wanted to repurpose them back into their original state so it has been hard deciding what to make with them. I think I have come up with the best solution which is to repurpose my vintage tea towels into the new Mazavaroo Chilli Design Farmer's Market Bag. You can see my original post on my collection of vintage tea towels and below are the new repurposed bags. I want to keep them all, I will keep two or three when I'm finished, I just have a hard time choosing. I love em all, decisions, decisions. Which is your favourite?
