I'm making matchbox shrine ornaments with tons of glitter, because I think of Christmas as my License to Glitter. Inspired by a project from Crafty Chica
This was the first batch. They're more symmetrical than they look in the photo, I swear. I hope they read as 'folk art' and not as 'psychiatric day care craft therapy project' but I don't know anymore.
Second batch. I blanked out the baby's code name on the ultrasound one, since I linked this photo from my blog and didn't want anyone to think that my friend was actually naming her baby that. It's just a silly in-utero name. The Rock ones are a picture of my husband, age 9, holding a Steve Martin King Tut record with a look of total joy on his face along with with giant 70s glasses, Christmas 1977. The extra one is for his mom. I love that photo; I put it on his business card since he's a freelance music writer.
I have more matchboxes and more glitter, and will make more of these as soon as I get more color ink for my printer and can print the photos! I like the black & white photos for most things, but I want to do some saint icons and photo collages and those work better in color.
