12 Days of Christmas: A Gift for Fanny

Happy 2012 everyone!

And here's another gift that i wish to share. Apart from being the first day of the year, 1 Jan is also a special day for a special friend. 1 Jan one of my besties' wedding anniversary, so here's a gift for her! An altered Kaisercraft wooden birdcage for Fanny and Conrad, painted in white and tan, and decorated with lotsa Prima and Webster's goodies!

But just an altered birdcage would be pretty boring wouldn't it?! So here's one, with a mini photobook attached! Just pull out the tag with the stopper flower that locks it in place, and the book is ready to be flipped!

I took those pre-bridal photos *beams with pride* Quirky stuff, cos apart of the usual romantic shots, we also did a quick shoot at a kopitiam (for my int'l followers, direct translation of "kopitiam" is coffee shop. It's kinda like an old school coffee drinking place. i wouldn't quite call it a cafe. it's usually kinda dirty and you have old men and plump ladies with loud voices taking your orders and serving you your drinks and food. haha. cheap stuff. Coffee cost like 90 cents and toast cos between $0.40-1.20 or yea, as much as it's a pretty dirty, oily place, it's something very local that is part of our everyday life). yup... so, this isn't a place where a bride and groom would normally be seen (and there were plenty of shocked faces when we arrived), hence making the photos unique!

Some close ups on the details...

Layering flowers, blings, stamped images and fussy cuts on old book pages.

So yep you two! hope you guys like it. And let me know if you want this mailed to you, or you prefer to get it from me when we see each other in a couple of weeks!
