~*~ A percentage of the proceeds of this listing will be donated to the American Cancer Society through Etsy Project Embrace.

~*~ These wings would look lovely hanging in a soft, romantic decor... maybe a cottage, shabby chic, vintage, Paris flea market, or farmhouse style home? Use them as an accent piece for a wedding or in a baby's nursery.

~*~ These tattered edge paper wings, with black text on aged pages, are made from pages of vintage books, just like my wreaths!

~*~ I will use a vintage book with French text for this set of wings. If you do not want French text, just let me know and we'll choose something else.

~*~ Blessings is printed on the flyleaf page from a vintage book or on parchment paper. It is surrounded by a hand pleated ruffle made of vintage crepe paper.

~*~ You may choose another word to replace Blessings.

~*~ The sculpture measures approximately 22" wide by 14" high (not including the ribbon). You may snip off the ribbon and hang the wings from wire loops that are on the back if desired.

~*~ The back is finished neatly and has the title and date of the book, as well as my name and year created (Lana Manis 2011).

~*~ Your wings will be very similar to the ones pictured, but keep in mind that my paper whimsies are handmade so slight differences may be seen.

*I don’t destroy perfectly good books as a rule, and use books that are falling apart, have pages missing, or are damaged in one way or another.

* I use lots of cushioning materials to protect the wings inside the box. Be sure to save your box ~ it is perfect for storing the wings when needed. I primarily use UPS GROUND for these packages, unless you are nearby, and then I will use USPS Priority. Insurance is included on all wreaths.
