Upcycled Doilies Card - video tutorial

Hi and welcome to another video on giving vintage finds a second life. Today's handmade cards feature some beautiful, upcycled crocheted and linen doilies. The video contains some of my challenges with adhesives and how I overcame them to create these cards.

As you are aware, I am totally committed to any recycle, repurpose, reuse initiatives. This project allowed me to upcycle some unused, unwanted doilies by making them into cards to give them a second life! I hope you enjoy seeing the upcycling process and that you, too, may get inspired to look around and see what you can make out of old, discarded items! Let's get started...
