A pretty paper serviette was the starting point for this card. Soft pink lace, bling for the cakes and a stencilled Happy Birthday were the finishing touches. Most of my cards are for sale in my Etsy shop

I had a lot of fun covering another empty matchbox. I used a page from an old children's book. For the pillow, sheets and bedcover, I used a pretty paper serviette, glued on to some light foam to give it a bit of strength and shape. I couldn't resist putting the dolly on a matchstick!!

I didn't Mod Podge the outside as I like the texture of the serviette....a bit like linen. Just be careful with your join as that will show through once you light your candle.

Using green paper, I cut out a stem and leaves and glued them on to my background...using a gluestick. Then I glued my CD onto my orange flower shape....for this I used PVA glue as the CD has a bit of weight. Only put the glue to the edge of the CD so the petals aren't stuck down, so there is some movement to them.
Finally, I glued the CD flower to the background. I tried using Sharpies (permanent markers) to decorate the CD and it turned out ok, however, this is for a Kindergarten class so I don't think the markers are suitable. Of course, if you are doing this with an older class, using permanent markers will be fun!!
Time for a plan B.

While out op shopping with my friend on Saturday, I came across this sweet little teacup and saucer. I knew it would be just perfect on my table that I had decoupaged with pictures from the Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.
