Stockings Were Hung Treasure...

This is one of the first gift boxes I have completed~
"The Stockings Were Hung"
I began these in September...remember that blog?
Whew! Time flies...

I painted the box with Avocado Green &
once it was dry...added antiquing medium.

Found this vintage ribbon (flocked) and a
sweet little scalloped lace~

I like the texture around the rim~
I haven't decided if I'm going to add more
to the bottom 1/2 of the seems bare~
Not everyone likes busy collage like I do.
I'll have to stare at it & decide.

The little stockings move around freely...
The Gold velvet ribbon is also vintage~
Held in place with a spot of glue & a clasp earring...
Remember that Kathy?
Perfect touch~

I did put some vintage Christmas papers inside...
No glue stick here...thin layers of craft glue or
decoupage mediums.

Had a fun weekend playing~
Back to deadlines tomorrow...
I'm all re-energized to be creative!
Best Wishes...

Oh your box turned out so pretty! And I love that you used the earring I sent you : ) Sometimes while thrifting or at garage sales or flea markets I will find a sweet single earring and I grab them. They are wonderful to embelish things. I am so glad you found a use for that one. Can't wait to see my surprise from you, I admit it : ) I hope you had a beautiful weekend!

Michelle, THIS is so great!! Don't you just LOVE crafting weekends! One day, girl, we are going to have to meet up and paste stuff all day!

Hmmm...what are all those "goodies" in the jar next to it on the shelf? Looks like stuff that will find its way onto more projects!! :-)
