French Seamstress Memo Board

Welcome, thanks for joining me today, I have created a memo board from Gina's using Kitty Scrap Post papers the French Seamstress.

Full View

Covered the dressforms with the French Seamstress paper, I added antique buttons to one 
of the spools, then added the spools to the pocket envelope.I added a metal sewing 
machine to the shelf, with spools of thread, & embellished with  flowers.

I added a decorative dress form to the shelf. Cut out the wire dress form out of the paper 
line & placed it behind the pincushion by cutting round the pincushion & inserting it. 
Lace & trim was added to the top & bottom of the memo board. 
Two bottle caps were placed above the dressforms.
