I just love creating things about Little Women.
I designed some bookplates using my digital paintbox and an Antique print by Jessie Willcox Smith dated 1923.
In each package are 20 bookplates printed on fine art paper using archival inks. The enclosure envelope is a lovely powder blue, I added a white grosgrain ribbon and a MY ROBIN stamp to wrap it. Makes a pretty gift.
Oh, but I just couldn't stop there.
I took one of my cut glass charms, added a teeny version of my print and finished it off with a lovely Antique charm,
which I found in Thoreauly Antiques in Concord, Massachusetts.
To make it look very Little Women,
I added a powder blue vintage ribbon to create the perfect coordinating bookmark.
Packaged in a lace and ribbon bag, these two designs make the perfect gift for a special someone.
I have listed both items on my etsy shop. One package contains the lovely envelope enclosure package with 20 bookplates. The other contains the envelope enclosure, charm bookmark, and lace gift bag.
