Be sure to hop around, there are many fantastic designers sharing various projects about how to preserve memories. Great techniques are featured along with an exciting variety of projects.

I created this bird and flower garland for my mantle, but my livingroom isn't lit very well. Therefore, couldn't get a good picture there. I have a Tatuage border along the chair rail of roses and wrought iron. These darling birds are right at home on the mantle. 

Kunin felt, one patterned and 2 solids. 
Beacon adhesives Felt Glue
1" buttons in coordinating colors- Buttons Galore and More
6 feet of ribbon


1. Cut out bird 8 shapes from patterned felt. Cut two at a time with the felt folded over, so birds will be going in opposite directions. 
2. Cut out flower and birds wings from plain felt. 
3. Lay the ribbon out on a large table, find the center. 
4. glue a flower to the center of the ribbon, glue a button to the center of the flower. 
5. Glue birds about 3" from the center flower one on each side. Glue wing into place.
