a bird French country style


I embroidered the card folder and included 2 bird tags
It has a pocket inside to hold pictures or gift cards
The front has some of my  funky machine embroidery 
The bird with mail has been painted and stitched
I was happy to find the  large oiseaux trinket to finish the design

for the birds

2 tags

Picture folder, French Style


I Made have many of these and they always remain favorites
they are simple but beautiful, I think.
I use old textiles and old lace and trims.
 There is a pocket inside, and it ties with ribbon
It is great made from paper and card too.
Let me know if you make another version
love to see


tied with a diamante buckle
