July 4th was a crafting day too!

Here is what I was up to yesterday , before all of the family get-together got underway!
I started with this little card or picture holder.  I they were silver, so I sprayed them with a hammered lighter black spray paint by Rust'O'leum.  I have six of them, and they were obviously for bridal shower centerpieces.  They had little white dresses on them, and they were collecting dust in my garage.  I plan to do more of these in this manner ( with perhaps changes in the dresses, and put some into the Etsy shop.  But for now, I just wanted to try doing something with one of them.  I went on-line and found these French Fashion Advertisements and printed them out for the card hold part.  I was tickled at how my first one turned out!


 French Fashion of the 1950's advertisements, in the card holders
This is the back side!
Is it Magnifique?  I guess it would be a cute little dresser decoration or they still would be darling centerpieces for a sweet French Tea, don't you think?  I think I just got idea!!! lol
