I love this picture of my daughter and Eloise.  Such good friends.  It is always heartbreaking when the girls have to leave.  Eloise keeps searching the house for them and curling up in their beds hoping they will return by night fall.  Since this picture was taken outside I wanted to keep the papers neutral yet feminine.
I punctured the maid paper with a large needle and threaded baby yarn through it making sure there was a knot at the end to prevent it from coming back through.  I also made sure to tape the thread on the back for extra measure.  I wrapped the large pink flower with yarn that has long threads hanging out for a whispy effect.
The main band of paper is folded on the ends and glued down in the middle giving a bow affect.  The picture frame paper is glued on top of some sturdy yet thin cardboard so that it would not bend in the middle.  I used white enamel paint to create pearls on the edges of the papers.
