Hello DIY Bees! I thought I’d start a board to share our inspiration vs. reality pictures (I’m not sure if one already exists). I’m always looking for inspiration to keep going with these projects! So, share away!
Here are some of the paper products I have successfully completed.

Love them! Did you make any of the lace yourself or did you purchase it?
I’ve done a lot of DIY, but most of it without an inspiration image. However, I did finish of my wedding clutch today – and it’s based on this bag that I found in a crochet magazine:
I made a couple of modifications (ivory instead of white, a crocheted edge + I lined the inside) and this is the end result:
Pardon the awkward hand… but unlike the model, I had to take my own photo. 🙂
