Onto the second of 4 projects I am creating using just one of the Miss Art's March kit: Madeline's Song.         

Flower embellished hair clips are all the rage at the moment, but if you look at the price tag most stores boost you could easily be seeing red. I absolutely love the vintage hymnal paper in the "Madeline's Song" kit and thought that it would be a beautiful backdrop for a handmade hair clip. All the materials used in the clip are from the Madeline's Song kit, except for the black tulle, the banana clip (from the dollar store) and the beautiful model (my 6 year old!).

In order to add dexterity and durabilty to the vintage paper you will need to coat it at least twice with Mod Podge on both sides of the paper, but the extra effort is definitely worth it. 

The neat thing about Miss Art's Papercrafting School is their unique focus on learning new techniques, but even if you aren't interested in taking a class their kits are a fantastic value for their diversity, quality of contents and abundant materials. 

Here is the down low on the March Kit: Madeline's Song:

In the 16th century there was a queen famed for her delicate beauty who defied the fears of a nation to pursue a marriage which would assuredly end in her death. This kit filled with 7 Prima papers from the collection bearing this heroine's name, is a mixture of elegant flourishes, sweet floral details and resolute patterns which will infuse any project with strength, beauty and a hint of the hope permeating young love. "Madeline's Song" is the very first of Miss Art's exclusive kits. Though it is loaded with a royal bounty including 17 flowers, over 50 embellishments and Miss Art's own vintage touches, it won't cost you your dowry.

** You can absolutely purchase this kit with no other obligation, but you would be remiss if you did not partake in the amazing class taught by CK Dream Team member Stacey Cohen. Her easy to follow technique focused instruction highlights the versatility and beauty of "Madeline's Song.”**
