Children DIY: Autumn leaves & Antique ribbon with Mer Mag

Merrilee of one of my all time favourite blogs, Mer Mag, just posted a DIY feature on how to create crowns using some of our antique ribbons (from our family's archives) and autumn leaves. I had created a special silk treasury kit with a mix of ribbons from late 1800s up to 1960s and I just love how Mer has transformed them into something so unique. What was once hidden in a dusty box in the attic is being worn and lovedĀ  again by a little girl (and her rag doll) over 9000km from where they were created many many years ago.
