Hoping you all had a lovely Thanksgiving with your families!
Are you feeling the crunch from having one less week between
Thanksgiving and Christmas this year?
I sure am, and I tried to get an early start by
crafting, crafting, crafting!
For our November Paper Soiree meeting
we were to alter TAZO tea tins.
I really had fun with this:
I sprinkled the tree with mica flakes and topped with a little red birdie.
The Believe is a glittered wooden embellishment.
I covered the tin with music paper
and cut out images from my favorite Christmas paper from last year,
"All is Bright",
which you can now find in a big pad at Michaels.
I attached a large glittered snowflake in the front and back,
and glued the images on the snowflake.
The back is embellished as well, I just forgot to take a pic of it.
And of course I added lace, tinsel, pearls and glitter!
The tin is a perfect size in which to store these beautiful
tags, which Marti showed us how to make
in her make-n-take:
A closer view:
The ornaments are a Tim Holtz die which I already had,
so I came home and made bunches of them!
I also made up a bunch of matchbox ornaments
like this one:
I do have more to show you, I just want to wait a bit
until the recipients receive their gifties.
