December 16

Day 16 of the Countdown to Christmas! Here is the box I made:

I love this girly color combination for Christmas. I made a matching gift inside:

I received this clever creation from Michelle Rondeau. She turned her matchbox into a little Christmas book!

Here's a peek at the sweet little charm she tucked inside!

I made another Ann-Denise inspired paper ornament. She taught a similar class a couple weeks ago, but I wasn't able to attend, so I reinterpreted her project. It was difficult to photograph because I don't have a good place to take hanging photos.

After assembling the sheet music cones, I added the vintage ballerina image and started layering on the embellishments - dyed and crinkled seam binding, vintage pearls, mercury glass beads, buttons, and tinsel. I even dangled a little bell from the bottom.

I added a vintage lace hanger so she can adorn our Christmas tree.

I can not believe how many awesome match boxes you have! They are really great! Thanks for sharing, I am going to have to give them a go I think. Beautiful ornament as well, so pretty.

BTW, the stencil was from an art supply store, in the airbrush section, I like that they are plastic and really thin, it makes the paint layer very manageable.
