These are the last four gifts I received in the online "12 Days of Christmas" swap.
On the left is a gorgeous etched glass ornament; on the right is another ornament - a jeweled bauble.
This is a handmade box that opens like a book to reveal six handmade cards nestled inside.
This shows the inside "top" that covers the cards. You can also see one of the cards. These will come in handy this year for birthdays and other occasions.
This is a darling necklace made with a wine cork! This, too, is very unique!
And a sweet little "JOY" banner. Each triangle is only 3.5" tall. So cute!
I was assigned Day 10 and I made a mixed media ornament. I used gel medium to cover the clear plastic ornament with torn book text papers. Then I painted, stamped and collaged on bits of green patterned papers. I stamped "joy" on tissue paper and then glued it in place, doodled around the tree and tied a bow and hanger with baker's twine.
Here are all twelve before I sent them off.
I couldn't find suitable boxes for them so I made pillow boxes with heavy yardstick and sent them in padded envelopes.
I hope everyone enjoyed them! I love this annual swap as it's such a fun way to start off the Christmas season.
