  1. Both very cool projects. I nearly passed out at the sight of the hessian flower though, I've just finished cutting 400 hessian pennants for my sister's wedding, and I now look at hessian with fear and dread lol! The metal closures are gorgeous! Creative Blessings, Tracy x

  18. Awesome hardware on both these projects, and I love that you've got the burlap texture on the flower of #1. Like the 'mixed media' effect on the journal cover, and ditto the cardboard recycle. Both are very impressive in the details & styling! TFS & Hugs
