Christmas Recap – The Rest

I still have more Christmas projects to share, so here is everything else that I worked on for Christmas.

Up first is a little hanging I made with a vintage photo and a Tim Holtz cabinet card frame. I added some glitter around the image and a sparkling title along with some vintage trim at the bottom.

I love making tags all year, and at Christmas I actually have a use for them! For these two tags, I took a card that our bank sent to us (I had no worries about cutting it up since I knew I wouldn’t be saving it) and used the background scene in completely different ways.

In this first tag, I left the image as is and added a rub-on swirl and a Maya Road kraft house. The “silver bell” and tinsel trim complete it.

For this tag, I obscured the background using a Tim Holtz stencil and two colors of paint dabbers. I inked a paper doily and added a piece to the left side behind my fairy ballerina. I added sparkle with a glittered edge, rhinestone bling, and tinsel trim.

And lastly, I made this box as a gift for my sister. I took a cosmetic/jewelry box and turned it into a candy box. I dressed up an image from an old card and added some beautiful Prima flowers.

Then I filled the box with fancy chocolates!

I’m still not ready for Christmas to be over and all the decorations to be put away, but I can look forward to doing it all over again in a few months!

    You make the most beautiful vintage inspired projects, my friend! And always such great ideas using vintage images. Love the little hanging you made. The cabinet card is adorable. Love the sentiment and the pretty trim. Fabulous tags, too. Love that you recycled a card to make the backgrounds. And the box? Just plain WOW!
