Who would have thought! Brilliant and oh-so-cute.

Oooh! Recycling at its best.

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

I can't even imagine what words you used to start that search, but well done! She's a beauty!

I love your little angel. It's a very clever use of something that would be thrown away without creative thinkers.


I think those were very popular back in the 1960s. Whoever decided to reuse the material was ahead of their time.


It also works great as a stencil when you are painting. You see a lot of that in the Somerset magazines.

I have sequin waste in my stash and craft with it. Now I know what to label the bin it is in!


Well there you go you learn something new every day.


Ooo...oooo...what else can you research. I love this..smiles..Renee


wow! i was actually just looking at a little house ornament yesterday wondering about the metal mesh like thing on the roof of it, i think it is the same thing! how cool!


That is so cool! I would have never guessed that.


So beautiful she is!! xo Heather

One of my earliest memories is making a purse for myself from a cereal box. I still love to use leftovers to make something. I love this little angel!

I just bought a pair of huge (14-15-inch) bottle-brush snowmen from the '40s---and the bows around their necks are made from this stuff. Good to know! (You can see the pix on my FB page.)


What a pretty little lady.


Just my kinda thing..I can't throw things away because I know I can turn them into something cute. I've never seen an angel like that but she sure is Modern sweet.
