I made my nieces an ornament every year for Christmas. In the past they've been themed after something significant from the year, but the more nieces I have, the harder it gets! I've resigned to making them each a generic ornament with slight differences. This was this year's. Smiley

The fronts:



The back:



Forgot to get an angle showing the sides, but the tin edge is done in the same ribbon as the bow, and the lid edge is done in gold glitter tape.

Inside:



With removable blankets, pillows, mice, and teddies! This photo makes me imagine a tiny sleepover. Grin



This year I'm going to have to start planning early. My nieces haven't actually received these yet as I just finished them this past weekend. Whoops!

Thanks for looking!  Kiss

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
