{Home Decor}

Remember the vintage sewing machine from this post? Well, today I have a fun little piece of home decor that I made to hang above that sweet vintage machine.
This is my 2nd project using the January kit from The Paper Bakery, and I must say I really like how this turned out! Of course when you love everything in the kit, it makes creating so easy :) The cute rosette was made from a zipper that I just rolled and hot glued into a coil to resemble a flower. A rhinestone in the center adds a bit of bling!
For the dress form, I got crafty and used the packaging from a chipboard piece included in the kit. The dictionary looking paper is the backing on the package, but worked perfect as an embellishment! I just drew the shape, cut it out, and added a few pop dots to give it a bit of dimension.

Well, it's almost Friday, and I'm looking forward to the weekend. No school on Monday so it's a long weekend too!  Woo-hoo!!
