Today I have a couple of vintage Christmas projects to share with you.
I picked up some oval wooden boxes at Michaels for $1.50/ea;
they are perfect size for altered Christmas gift boxes.
I was in the mood of making fabric/lace altered projects
and these are what I came up with.
The oval wooden box measures 4.25" x 2.5" x 2.5".
I stamped Crafty Individuals-332 image on TAP paper with
brown StazOn ink and then ironed on muslin fabric.
I added glitter gel on the snowflakes to give some sparkles.
I hand and machine stitched various laces and pearls to frame the image.
I layered a piece of light-weight batting material under the muslin to
give some padding and depth before mounting it on to the lid.
I covered the rim with a piece of seam binding to conceal
the frayed edges of muslin and then with lace.
I covered the side and bottom of the box with DP from Magnolia
and attached a strip of lace at the base.
I added tiny pearls on the lace using Viva Decor Pearl Pen.
I was surprised it didn't take me very long to alter this box,
less time than making a card :^)
I also made a little lace cone ornament/ gift bag.
The cone is 6.5" long without the tassel.
The base of the cone is a piece of pink Magnolia DP.
I cut out a pie shape using a compass- 6" radius and a 70 degree angle,
made the paper cone and covered it with lace.
I decorated the cone with an musical angel image (CI-154 stamped on
TAP and transferred onto muslin), tiny pom pom ribbon,
more laces, appliques, pearls and a tassel.
I attached a crystal bead string so it can be hung up for display.
These are easy and fun projects to make and great for Christmas giveaway.
Why not give it a try.
If you have any question, just drop me a line.
Hope you enjoyed this visit.
