For today’s ornament, I decided to go the “If I shove it in the tree, I can call it an ornament” route.
Mmmmm . . . lovely!
I used my Tall Box Template Set and some digital papers by Kelley Mickus, from the Grab Bag she will be releasing on Thursday. (Good thing these gals don’t stalk my blog, or they would know that I’m giving you sneak peeks!!)
I have SO many ideas for using this template. What I wanted to do was poke a hole through the top and bottom, then string some satin ribbon through the holes, adorned with beads, of course. Then the lid could open and close by sliding along the ribbon. Wouldn’t that be pretty?
However, I didn’t have any satin ribbon, or pretty beads, so this is what you get. It’s till gorgeous, though, festooned with that pretty Prima flower. (I have a ton of those flowers, because I won a few of their contests last year. I need the new ones, though. I’m thinking that would make a great Christmas present from an adoring fan.)
Here’s a little tip: Drag the lid and box templates onto an 8.5×11 canvas (in Photoshop Elements), then click and resize both pieces of the template at the same time so that the lid will fit the box when you shrink them down.
Did you happen to create an ornament yesterday? If so, leave a comment so we can see!
And, if you attempt the ribbon-through-the-box idea, please show me!
