I've replied to a few posts here and have been lurking for a while, but now I have a question that I'm hoping someone can help me with.

I have recently planted several fruit trees, some with three different varieties grafted to the same main branch. Because of these 'franken-trees', as I call them, I'm wanting to make some sort of label or sign that I can hang from them so that I know what each are growing.  Right now I have the little tags that the nursery puts on them, but I don't like that in the long run.  I want something that will not wrap itself around the branch from which it hangs, and will not get entangled into the others signs/labels. I thought of wire - go from one corner of the label to the other loosely and hanging off the branch - but that leaves me with the label itself.  Any ideas of anything that would hold up to sun, heat, wind and water for many years?

Got this little box at Goodwill and knew it would make a cute steampunk trinket box. I used my fave scrapbook papers and some cute embellishments.

I made this for a swap on Craftster and was really pleased with how it came out. :)





I used a combination of card stock and scrapbook paper. The card stock butterflies I folded to bring their wings up, as if in flight. Some of the scrapbook ones I doubled, putting one directly on top of another to give it a 3D effect. Because of the depth of the shadowbox frame, there’s plenty of room for them to “flutter” their wings.

It’s a fun take on a traditional specimen or botanical print. No butterflies are harmed in the making of this one!

(You can see larger versions of the pics here on my blog.)
