Crafting Tutorial Using Vintage French Collars

I had to share this beautiful corsage tutorial that my talented friend Elizabeth Maxson created using a Vintage French Collar. Go to Elizabeth’s site and get the steps on how she took one of these~

And created these~

Fabulous don’t you think?

Don’t you just love combining vintage finds into beautiful adornments:)

Mr PracticalPants and I are headed to Cocoa Beach, Florida for a week of R&R. Will take plenty of photos to share with you:)

Blessings Dear Friends:)

    Beautiful! I am really excited, I have an old french collar that belonged to my great uncle or my grandpa. Can’t wait to make a corsage with mine. Think I will use an old brooch and maybe some kind of flower. Thanks for the ideas.
