Swan Lake Theatre

 I'm so excited to share my first creation on my Magnolia blog!  I made this Swan Lake Theatre back in November on the Online Magnolia Day and actually realised today that I only posted it on Facebook, not on my blog!!  As my daughter takes ballet lessons I gave her the theatre as a decoration for her bedroom.
The base of the theatre is a recycled cardboard ribbon spool which I covered in some beautiful Pion Design papers around the outside.  I also used a scrap of paper that looked like wood for the floor boards on the stage.
 I painted Tilda and the swans with Distress Inks and then cut them out completely so that I could add them to the stage.
 I used the Heart Swirl Doohickey from Magnolia to create the vines to frame the sides of the stage.  I used some beautiful straws from Craft Heaven Shop topped with pearl pins for the frame supports.  I also added lace and some rose trim around the top of the theatre.
I also added some pretty flowers from my collection at the base of each straw.
 Here is the view looking down on Tilda from above the theatre.  I hope you have enjoyed viewing it as much as I enjoyed making it!  Thanks for looking! x
