Vintage Trifles Studio Play date

I had such a wonderful time today.  My great friend Martha from Vintage Trifles hosted a wonderful play date at her house here in Salem.  In this class she taught us how to create these wonderful paper cakes that are made from recycled books.  I have been looking forward to this class for a whole year!

  Last year if you look back on my blog in February we made these wonderful passports of our past and we had such a blast. After the class was over she had asked us what we would like to do for the next class and we had suggested the cake books.  

For the past month I have been pondering what the theme of my cake would be and then I realized that I have a baby shower coming up that I am planning and these would be 
a wonderful addition to my buffet and also my decor.  
The theme that I am going for with the shower is "Feather her Nest"  

So here is my "Cake":

After the class was finished I was lucky enough to spend some extra time in the studio with Martha and my wonderful friends Betty and Carol.  We had so much fun chatting with a little wine and brownies.  well me being me I just couldn't help myself and started on these adorable buffet markers.  
I will be using these for the food for the shower here is how they turned out:

 I used some salvage wood pieces that I picked up from my "second mom" Lisa from Randall Wood Estates.  I think they just turned out darling!  Oh and for the little bird images I used my favorite blog Graphics Fairy I just copied, pasted, and printed them out in the size that I wanted.

  If you ever get a chance to go to one of these studio classes DO NOT HESITATE!  
They are soooooo fun!  Check out Martha's blog for more info on future classes and pictures of the gals and the cakes that they made there are some really adorable cakes that were made!

Thanks for checking my little project out!
