Birthday Baton

 Happy Friday, one and all.  This is a Birthday Baton I share with you today, it has no other function than to make the recipient smile.  She is a zebra lover.  I have used one of my favorite pieces to repurpose, a paint stirrer, I covered it with Zebra Paper by GCD Studios, distressed with sand paper, drilled a hole in the bottom and then wrapped it with florist wire that I first hand hammered out.  The medallion is a "Spellbinder's" oval mounted to chipboard with an eyelet set to attach with more of the florist wire to the wrap.  The zebra is from Lilyboo, the flora and fauna - butterfly Martha Stewart, the leaves "Memory box" dies and flower unidenitified.  All coloring done with Copic markers.
 Here it is sitting in a glass.
This is a close up of the hand hammered wire wrap.  Hope everyone has a fab weekend.  Hugs
