Designing DIVAS Challenge

Good Morning !

I have a project to share with you today that was made for a challenge with the Designing DIVAS at SCS. We were asked to make a Christmas tree box ornament. This was a real treat for me! I love making 3D projects!

I used patterned card stock for the tree. The swirls that formed the pattern just called out for embossing powder so I used my embossing pen to trace the swirls. I then heat set the gold powder. The picture doesn't show the shimmer nearly enough but it's there. For the flower I used a daisy punch and punched two red and one gold flower. I edged the red petals with gold marker. Next, I layered the pieces and secured them with a gold brad. The hanging loop was made with gold cording.

I hope to make several of these to fill and hang on the tree this year. Always nice to have a little something to give people who visit and they can choose one right from the tree. We have always used candy canes for this before but I think the tree boxes will be a nice touch this year.

Thanks for stopping by today! Come back when you can and stay a while. I'll put the coffee on!

Oh, and don't forget to stop by the Thank You post and leave a comment so you can be in the prize drawing!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
