{the paper variety - 1-2-3 recipe challenge!}

Hi everyone! Have you seen the new challenge at the paper variety? 1-2-3 --- so easy & fun --- and of course there is a super prize to win -- seriously, an entire kit from Artful Delight!!! :) :) :)

I bought this wooden "W" by Deco Art, at Hobby Lobby this winter.

I love the Scribble Scrabble pp that comes in the March Citrus Tree Studio kit!! Sounds funny, but it matches my livingroom so nicely. :) I altered this "W" to go on my wooden quilt shelf that is painted black. It really looks nice up there! :) My recipe = 1 flower, 2 pps and 3 buttons.


Materials - Deco Art wood letter, MM gold paint, Scribble Scrabble pp, Prima pp - I cut the bird and leaves from the Prima - and also applied a coat of mod podge to them for some durability. BG bling (cut apart pieces), Stampin' Up! rub on, jenni bowlin star rub, & FP buttons. The flower is made from a piece of gray felt. I cut a 1" strip of felt and then basted a stitch along the bottom of strip. Then I simply gathered the thread and tied together to make this flower - topped it with layered buttons - and I love how it turned out! :)


Thanks for coming by my blog! Hope you get a chance to play at the Paper Variety this week!!


hugs, patti
