I recently won a contest at The High Note Dot Net, of shredded sheet music. Darilyn wrapped it so beautifully and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. So today I want to show you the first two projects I completed with my sheet music.
I decided I wanted to decoupage, something I have never done before so I started with a small project for myself. I started with a clay pot I’ve had forever.
I wanted to incorporate some of the lovely touches in how Darilyn packaged the sheet music, it’s a lovely reminder of how a small gesture can make receiving a package even more special. So using the lovely paper from the top of the bag of sheet music this is what I created.
And here is how it looks now that it is dry and filled.
Now I felt ready to prepare my Christmas present for a good friend.
My friend is a very talented pianist who also has gorgeous flower gardens all around her home. She frequently brings cut flowers inside to enjoy throughout the growing season and I couldn’t think of any thing better than to bring her two loves together into a small gift.
I started with recycling a jar from local honey.
Cleaning that label off took some real work, but worth the effort. This is what I ended up with.
Wait, not done yet. Nothing goes to waste here. Darilyn added a sweet little blue ribbon with a piece of sheet music tied to the top of my package of sheet music I added it to the top of the jar for a more finished look and can write a note on the sheet music/tag
When it’s closer to Christmas I will add a couple clippings from one of my house plants to root for her. She will now have a vase for her own clippings to display in her home which fits her personality, and will also give her a new plant to grow in her home when the roots are ready.
Darilyn didn’t scrimp on the amount of sheet music she sent me either, after these two projects I have this left.
I have a few more ideas, but they will have to wait till after Christmas. I will share them with you when they are done.
