Forgeries on the Fourth - May Tutorials

for·ger·y
ˈfôrjərē/
noun
  1. the action of forging or producing a copy of a document, signature, banknote, or work of art.

Welcome to "Forgeries on the Fourth" where it is no crime to create your own version of the trendy, hip products from the inspiration kit using your own stash and ingenuity. Each month on the fourth, check out tutorials from your Master Forgers or links to resources they have found for you on the internet.

If you ever wondered what it was like when the Counterfeit Kit Blog first started...wonder no more! This month we are copying the very first inspiration kit we featured on the blog -  a Jenni Bowlin kit as shown here:


  


We are also using the current Jenni Bowlin Magpie Kit as some current inspiration.


The joy of choosing an original Counterfeit Kit is that there are already some great tutorials already in the CKCB archives!

First off, we have an original tutorial from our very own CKCB founder Bethany who counterfeited the Studio Calico Notions in the main kit way back in 2011.  It's here on her blog.

The original post about Bingo cards is here and it includes a great share from one of our early followers Erin who forged the monthly Bingo cards on her blog here
(her link for Jan-Apr is broken - try this instead)
We shared some ideas for the Maya Road doilies right here on the blog.


Then we posted a tutorial for the Sassafrass Vintage Brooches which can be found here.

We found loads of tutorials for the beautiful decorated stick pins here.


 And finally, our other Founding Mother, Meridy, shared a tutorial for the Maya Road Satin Posies from the original add-on kit back in 2011 here.

Now back to the present day (after a fashion) ... let's see what kind of vintage printables we can find on Pinterest...a forger's BFF!

Free printables for vintage milk caps found HERE

And here are some ideas for embellishments that can be made with those bottle caps.  Check out this adorable project plus many more on this blog HERE.





These make a lovely bouquet or could be a fun embellishment.  See more on the blog HERE

And last up, Lisa had a go at the tissue paper rosettes too.

You can find her take on these pretty paper flowers on her blog here.



Whether you use some of our original tutorials or the current printables from Pinterest, be sure to link up your creations on May Mr. Linky!

Forge on, my friends!
