Arty Farty Cherub

I LOVE doing these :)

A friend in work wanted a really girly one to give to her friend.
'The more frills the better' was the spec!
That was it - I was in my element doing this, and I'm really pleased with the final result.

Waiting to get all of the birth details now and will then attach a 'plaque' to the foot of the cot.
I have adapted the AF pattern a little to account for the cover at the top of the straws and to make the carry box using A4 card (5 seperate pieces - Front, Back, Bottom and 2x Sides)

Arty Farty Cherub Pattern
Pink Pearlised Card
Art Straws - side bars
Lace from local haberdasheries
Glittered Embossed Vellum from stash
Doll on a spring - taken from the top of a pencil!!!

Thanks for looking :)
