Halfway Post for Unstampabelles #20 - Use a Doily

Over at Unstampabelles this month we are asking you to use Doilies on your paper project.  It is time for a bit of half way inspiration so I decided to do a bit of origami.  I used this wonderful tutorial here to create the Doily Doves.  I then threaded them onto white cotton with some pearl like beads.  Now I have a wonderful hanging decoration to blow in the breeze.

So come on over to Unstampabelles and check out all the other entries and add yours.
The prize this month is a $25.00 gift certificate from Cardmaking Online.

I think it's time I shared something over at Make it Monday #128 - Always Anything Goes.
Just saw they have a Design Team call too.

Thank you for all you lovely comments and continuing to visit me.  I really do appreciate it. :-)
