My First Swap With Marie Group

I am a proud new member of the
Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group!

The first swap I have joined is
"Snips and Bits."

Round one of the swap is to put together a pretty array of
fabrics, laces, ribbons, images, buttons, beads, charms, flowers,
and add some sparkle.

Next, package everything up prettily,
and send it off to our partner.

I love swaps like this!
It is so much fun,
much like an archaeological dig through my stash.

I made a simple bag of 4 layers of netting,
and fastened 12 lovely ribbons to close the bag.
I like that it looks a little like a tassel.

Topped it all off with a coordinating tag,
and off it goes to Rhonda.
 
Round 2 will be to use all the
 "Snips and Bits"
we each receive to create 3 fabric rolls.
 
enJOY a lovely today,
and Your Blessings,
Kimberly

So pretty Kim. I love how you did the tassel with the trims. My package went off to Bobbi Ann today and you're right about the archeological dig! It was the same for me. Treasure hunting in my own stash. :) Hugs!

Congrats on becoming a member of such a wonderful group!!!
I have seen so many wonderful artists and the beautiful items they create.
Someday I hope to join the group. I have a way to go and it is also by invitation only I think.

I love your netted bag with the "tassel" of ribbon. Looks amazing. Your partner is extremely lucky!!!
