Ornament Keepsake

 On Sunday, October 14th, the girlz got together for a day of ornament making!  This all was inspired by the front cover of one of the Stampin' Up! catalogs (see below).  Using the Stampin' Up! Ornament Keepsakes Stamps and Dies, along with a variety of other supplies that included tons of glitter - which we aptly got EVERYWHERE....but I digress...

Enjoy the photos, but I can assure you that these are so much more stunning in real life!

Cigar Box #16

I made this box using a pretty 8x8 stack....but I can't find the stack, so I can't tell you the name of the stack :(    I don't even remember from where I got it now.  Oh well.  Nevertheless, the bling on the top is a Zva Creative Self-adhesive Embellishment.  Ain't it pur-ty?

Anyway, I am letting this box go to my neighbor (who is also a really good friend) who is gifting it to Mary Lou Quinlan, author of "The God Box."  (Don't tell her!) My neighbor's book club read the book, then had a Skype discussion with the author.    I had given an altered Cigar Box Class with some of the same ladies earlier in the day, and my neighbor used her box as a God Box which was given as the door prize to one lucky book-club-discussion participant that night.  She then wanted to give a box to the author, so I offered up this one :)

Cigar Box #11

I recently realized that I jumped from Cigar Box #10 to Cigar Box #12 on this blog.    I couldn't figure out my mistake, but finally found these photos from Cigar Box #11 that I had fortunately saved when I made the box some time ago. 

I used the same paper as I used for Box #3 and Box #6 - Recollections Union Square Plaza stack.
