Anniversary Plaque

For the 25th anniversary of the florist shop of my friend, there was an open house. One could not go without creating a tribute of some kind.

Here, I used a wooden base/tag shape (from Michael's), covered with my favorite paper from foof-a-la ; and then, layered on top an embroidered heart.

I'm loving to do these right now.
Fair warning, if I'm doing any projects in the near future, they will probably have some sort of embroidery like this.

The backside is covered with a vintage catalog page and a cut out Mary Englebreit calendar image.
Then, wrapped it up (my favorite part) with this embossed kraft paper, white paper lace, and buttons strung onto yarn.


  1. What a fun plaque - I'm sure she loved it! I like the wrapping, so pretty!

  2. Just BEAUTIFUL every way you look at it...front, back, inside and out! Truly something to treasure for this very special anniversary. xox
