Re-use, Recycle, Re-Purpose ATC swap

 Even though this wasn't an actual Valentine swap, it is that time of the year!
Given the swap theme, I just had to put all those shiny little foil wrappers to good use.  Here's the run down:

  • background (stripe) is the inside of an envelope (from a bill, of course!) painted red
  • foil and "Kisses" banner is pretty obvious :-)
  • the little cherub girl is a copy of my Great Aunt Ora's Valentine stash--i'm guessing from the 1930's
  • The hearts are made from some old book pages painted and tied on with pearl cotton
