e's first birthday... part 3

the favors for e's party continued the woodland theme. i wanted to give something that wasn't candy or sweets, but also something that reminds the guest of e. I found 4x4 canvases online and covered each  of them with vintage wallpaper. i painted the child initial on the wallpaper in a mossy log, woodland theme. 
 for the packaging, i used waxed brown paper bags, folded them over, and sliced a hole through the fold. through the hole, i laced the twig to hold it closed.
 
  the tags for the favors were made of bark from a paper bark melaleuca tree. i painted the initial of the child on the tag and tied it to the twig with fat pistachio green yarn. i finished it off with some spanish moss and a red german spun-cotton mushroom.
