altered divider

I can't believe September is almost over! What a crazy month! I hope things will slow down for me soon but it isnt looking to promising! Oh well, keeping busy is good for you I guess.
I wanted to share this project with you today! I made it from a little divider thing (these are used to organize recipes or something I think) I altered it by first adding the dictionary paper and then distressing it. I used some white acrylic paint, ink and TH distress tool. I used a little paper tape piece (the blue and red) from the vintage findings mm collection. I added some cute dollar store lace and little letter stickers. I made the flower using a spiral technique (actually quite easy and pretty!) and hand cut the leaves. I added an eyelet to the flower which seves as a spot to clip the little arrow charm to! I love how this looks!
I cut the tiny bingo cards from the TH lost and found paper pad. I added a tiny feather and behind the flower is a found piece cut from some mail (which I distressed)

I glimmer misted and distressed the back of the plain divider. I added a simple paris stamp (used some perfect pearls on it) and the tag/bookmark/fun thing is complete!
