Birds deserve a special place on the holiday tree. Making these ornaments is easy with a glue gun, beads, charms and buttons, and a realistic looking bird from the craft store.
A little ceramic bear from the antique mall is the accent in this arrangement. Salt and pepper shakers are great, inexpensive choices for adding a focal point.
For this piece, I created a card to give a friend access to a preferred parking area at the office. The note paper is from a resort we visited on a business trip stamped with designs that depict the love of travel accented by the rose and twig theme. The key has a special saying meaningful to my friend. I used stamps, ink, and accessories from the Tim Holtz collection to make this.
