Good morning friends. What is your favorite crafting style? Double D Challenges just started a new challenge asking that question.
I enjoy lots of different styles but the one I continue to go back to as my favorite year after year, would be vintage / retro style.
I created these vintage style ornament boxes last year and never got around to posting these last two.
The ornament box was made using Spellbinders nestabilities dies with a stitched oval cut from the center of the front panel. I covered the front panels with ModaScrap Christmas Paper and then added some of my favorite embellishments from Tim Holtz Christmas Ephemera to the inside and front of the ornament.
You can see in this photo, that the thickness of the box is about 3/4 of an inch, so there's lots of room on the inside for layering your favorite goodies. I added lots of Distress Mica Flakes or glitter on the inside of the ornaments to make them shine.
If you'd like to see the posts from last year with the other boxes I've made, click on the links below.
I'll be adding one of these projects to the following challenges:
