My sister and I were partners for the IYP swap and she mentioned that she like my Christmas tree ornaments, so I decided to make her a kit in miniature-
A dozen 1 inch by 1 inch ornaments (plus two 1/2 inch ones).
I had an old cigar box that I covered with some nice red and green papers. I left some of the wood
showing as it was so pretty.
I made dividers out of book board and covered them with the same papers, glued them in and used some gold ink on the edges.
I used lots of different papers for the ornaments (which are 1"x 1" blocks) and a lot of Stickles sparkles and
metal findings and beads. I drilled holes top and bottom in each ornament (after I covered them with paper) and used E6000 to glue the beaded head pins in place.
I made a Merry Christmas banner and covered an oblong piece of book board in green paper to wrap the banner on to keep it tidy.
I found some tiny red and gold garland, tied them up with ribbon and added those as well.
A fun and very rewarding project!
