Bird Pin Cushion!!!

Hey everyone!!! I got another project done!! This one is for a scrappy friend on The Scrap Beach ning site!!! Its a pin cushion. I decided to try making one because I was so sick of those ugly tomato lookin ones that you buy from the store. This ones made of 3 used ribbon spools stacked and glued together. I cut in half a foam styrofoam ball (use the soft ones it makes pushing this pin in easier!!!), then covered it with scrap fabric. I covered the sides of the ribbon spools with DCWV Ciao Bella Paper.  I lined the top edge with lace to hide any gaps between the foam ball and the ribbon spools.  Lined the bottom and top edges with pearls. My mom crocheted the doily and I glued it down. I cut a piece of chipboard to line the back and adhered a compact mirror. Placed it in behind the foam ball and glued it down. I decided to decorate the edges of the mirror by stamping some bird image and bird cage on paper and adhered that to chipboard. Then glued that piece with E6000 to the mirror. I also decorated the sides with I Am Roses R4-60, Michael's Christmas purple pick pieced together to create the look of branches.  I had so much fun doing these. I've made two already. I dumped my memory card and deleted the pics of the other pin cushion. Duh!!! Anyways the theme of this one was Shabby Chic Birds!!! I hope to get pics of the other one and then of course I'll show that one too ya too!!! Have fun riding the wave of creativity!!!! Try making one its awesome!!! -Natalie
