♥ Shabby Chic Baby ♥ TSTR #42

I hope that you all had a very magical and wonderful Christmas! Our Christmas was awesome! It was our little one's 1st Christmas and our other son's 5th Christmas. It is so wonderful to see Christmas again through a child's eyes! No stress, just innocence and magic in their eyes!

This week at The Shabby Tea Room, the theme is "Shabby Chic Baby". You must use this gorgeous inspiration photo to create a card or project and you must use fabric somewhere on it too! How fun!
I decided to make a little picture frame wrapped in fabric, a little photo holder made from a little wooden block, also draped in fabric and a card for the special little one with a handmade flower out of fabric.
The frame is a $1 frame from Michael's, which I just starting wrapping it with a strip of fabric. Securing it with a hot glue gun. Simple!
The photo holder is a wooden block I also picked up at Mike's for 99 cents. I cut out squared pieces of fabric and adhered it to the block, again with a hot glue gun. I then wound a white pipe cleaner around a small pencil to make the loops on the top to hold a photo. I then adhered it to the back of the block behind a piece of fabric. To finish it off, I added some trim and satin ribbon, a Melissa Frances rub-on, pp, and a heart button with pearl center. Simple!
Next for my card, I simple cut out some different size circles of fabric, sewed them together in the middle, added a heart button and pearl in the center and then attached it to some glittered wings. Added a satin bow, another heart button and a Melissa Frances rub-on. Simple!!
This week's sponsor is I Did It Creations. The winner will receive some beautiful Digi Images to play with!
