Christmas Garland #2 by Briana Johnson
I punched a small hole with my Crop-a-dile to add a JBS Rhinestone Brad for the eye. I also backed the brad with a vintage metal finding. I used THIS video tutorial from Jenni on how to make the flower except I used sheet music instead of tissue paper. I backed the flower with tinsel wire rope/trim (that I've seen in craft stores in the holiday crafts section, the kind you see on Victorian ornaments) that I stretched out and twisted all around the back of the flower. Next I layered a JBS chip button with a black doily and another JBS Christmas chip button. I covered the little bird wing in Jenni's black polka dot paper and also added a little banner cut from a piece of her new red/black line paper. See supply list for details.
I wish I had an entire little feather tree of JBS ornaments! I'll need to get to work on that : )
