Beryl can take a bit of silk and a few beads, and, with astitch here and a wash of paint there, magicallytransform them into anembellishment you can appliqué onto a fabric paper wall hanging or glue onto a card.With Valentine's Day approaching, I thoughtI'd share one of Beryl's simple yet stunningheart projectswith you.These adorable tagsare made by layering pieces of silk ontohanging garment tags you usually throwaway.
