We created several projects at the Plymouth, Michigan Library on Saturday.
One was a candle that we added an embellished design on mulberry or tissue paper.Wax paper was placed on top of the design around the candle and our design was melted with a heat gun.
We also made several cards..one was a giant heart that folded in an envelope size and can be mailed.
We also created pockets that have a sliding Candy bar with the help of a ribbon.

The quilt is my fable of the butterfly's life cycle with a moral. The leaf, leaf with eggs, the eaten leaf that feeds the caterpillar, Chrysallis and emerging butterfly. The circle represents the world and the bar code is to count blessings!
