Memory Capsule Ornament

Tuesday night was our local art group meeting and I was finally able to attend after having missed the last two meetings. Trisha brought all the supplies for us to make these darling Tim Holtz memory capsule ornaments. They are made from the small square memory frames which are intended as bracelet links as they have jump rings on two sides. We hung bells from the bottom ones and the top ones are hidden beneath the metal corner (roof). They are still functional so this can be hung as a pendant. The small image was cut from the new Graphic 45 Christmas line - one of the papers is filled with small, rectangular postage-stamp vintage images just perfect for using in charms or jewelry. We added ultrafine glitter inside the memory capsule as well as snow glitter on the rooftop. I think I will add a pin to the back of mine and wear it on my apron at work during the holidays.
