Altered Spools

Spool of Friendship
Now Available at my Etsy
I finished this tonight. It is a spool with a special message enclosed on the pretty paper wrapped around it. I used a pretty pink brad and a pink satin ribbon that wraps around the brad to keep it fastened until the person who receives it opens it up.
The message inside is a poem I found by an unknown author as follows:
Where would I be
and what would I do?
If you never met me
and I never met you?
Who would I laugh with
and cry till the end?
What would I do
without my bestfriend?

This is a picture of the inside of paper that is wrapped around the spool. This picture does not do it justice as it was an unusually long photo. I used vintage pictures, gel pens and a labeler to write the poem. I also used some collage elements and some rub ons.



This piece is now available in my Etsy Shop
