Old Crepe Paper and Inspiration

While I was digging in my boxes looking for trims, I found some pkgs. of old crepe paper that I had bought a while back at our local St. Vinnies..and thought it would be perfect for doing some flower girls that I saw in Sandra Evertson's book so made a couple samples to see if I want to do more..hmm my coffee break is over back to the basement and today is when everything gets its glittery finish!
