Contained Vintage

When a vintage doily becomes much more than a decorative place mat.  Recently spent some time with my mother out and about trying to find estate sales when we came across a few vintage treasures.  I don’t collect much, but when I saw large boxes of knitted doilies, fabric and buttons I fell in love.  Today I used a few of my finds, many Vintage Street Market goodies and a little bit of this and that to create a gift container and tag.

It may go against the norm; however, I used my Sizzix circle die and doily find to create a layered flower on the top of the jar.  Topped with a mulberry flower from VSM.

Used the bingo craft card to create a label, a ticket which I stamped for the tiny tag and vintage book paper to embellish the layers.  So maybe die cutting something that was so finely knitted isn’t such a bad thing.  Helped create a gift that is just perfect for someone special.

  • bingo craft card
  • vintage ticket
  • vintage book paper
  • paper flowers
  • pins
  • crepe paper border

Have a great Saturday and maybe you are out looking for vintage treasures…wishing you happy finds!
