Upcycled packing becomes mantel decoration

Remember the accordion cardboard packing I mentioned at the end of the last post? It became a lovely spring mantel decoration. I confess I don't usually get too seasonal on the decor when it's not Christmas. But this lovely is getting me through until the snow fades.

Used Mod Podge to cover with Sassafrass "Nerd Bird" paper alternating with an old stash postcard print. Oh, first I inked the edges with CTMH "Pacifica" ink.
Next, I cut out Michael's Recollections poppy flower paper. Then I used my Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz elegant flourish die to get these lovely spring green accents.

This was the only new product I used ~ bought K&Co Susan Winget die-cuts & acetate. The colors were so beautiful and light. I put a little bee on each panel. :-)  Doodled with Sakura gel pens and the ribbon is stash from Petaloo.

The finished product on the mantel.
