Ladybug Package

I've been anxious to post the picture of the ladybug goodies I sent to Sherry for June's YOE theme. USPS delivery confirmation says it was delivered so I'm posting the picture. This month I tried modge podge and paper mache with tissue paper for my ornaments. The ornament on the right is made using a silver frame that I bought at a yard sale then modge podged a page from Alice In Wonderland on it. I drew a little ladybug for the center but Sherry could replace it with anything she wants. The green leaf ornament in the center was made using wire and tissue paper that I paper mached to the wire. The ladybug on the leaf is also made from paper mached tissue paper. I altered a small Altoid can using modge podge to be a ladybug ornament or maybe a little pill box for Sherry's purse. Of course my personal favorite is the wool ladybug pincushion. I promised myself I wouldn't use recycled wool this month for YOE ornaments but I couldn't stop myself and this little ladybug fairy was born. I think she's very cute and rounds out the package. I had a great time making these ornaments and hope Sherry will like them!
Now I'm looking forward to July's theme - Mermaids, water sprites, sirens, and water nymphs! I can't wait to get started!
