Swirlydoos 12 Days of Christmas Contest: Day EIGHT

Welcome to Day Eight of our 12 Days of Christmas Contest!
We LOVE seeing the projects y'all have created so far, and Oh My Gosh....
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
(you need to hum the tune along with the words)
in our Gallery and we can't wait to see more!

YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Create/alter at least 2 Christmas ornaments!
Incorporate bling/pearls,  music note paper/old book paper,  little angel/snowflake 
and upload your project in the gallery by midnight, EST!
Here are some examples:
 Some music note paper, wrapped around a glass ornament, finished of with an little angel and some pearls.
I used a decoupage technique on this one. Teared old book paper in little pieces and used Multi Medium to add the paper to the glass ornament.
**TIP** Lightly mist the pieces of paper with water, this way they are easier to work with. Then finished it of.
How about some fake snow (powder) inside the bauble? The feathers and Prima Marketing Resin are so pretty together.
This one has definitely some color, and was done in NO time.
I love this Ornate Frame Die from Tim Holtz. So versatile and gives you the opportunity to create beautiful Christmas Ornaments.
 This, vintage Santa, one is double sided. I cut 2 ornate frames and glued a piece of transperancy between them. This is the front of my ornament and in the picture below you can see how the back looks.
I hope you feel inspired already.
Again, YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Create/alter at least 2 Christmas ornaments!
Incorporate bling/pearls,  music note paper/old book paper,  little angel/snowflake 
and upload your project in the gallery by midnight, EST!
We can't wait to see YOUR ornaments!

Swirlydoos 12 Days of Christmas Contest Day 6

Good morning,
Are you all enjoying these 12 days of Christmas assignments, as much as we do?
We love all the entries!!
And did you have fun with Rae's assignment (giftbox) yesterday?
I have the next one for you, but with a little twist:
Your Assignment:
Create a GIFTBOX incorporating:  a triangle,
(it can be the box itself, (don't panic, I made a template for you) or just a triangle shape on your box)
the colors red, gold & green, and a "Merry Christmas" sentiment.
And now for some inspiration, here's my gift box:
Of course this box is only for inspiration, and you can give it your own twist, using your own supplies. However I did a step by step tutorial on this box, and created a template, which you can find in the Contest thread.
so again, your assignment is to create a GIFTBOX using:
For this box, I used Kaisercraft PP from their Christmas Carol Collection, some laces and trims from my stash and from our Decemeber kit, Prima Marketing Resin piece, Petaloo Berries,
 and a ribbon with the Merry Christmas sentiment.
 Make your gift box, and upload it to the gallery in the contest section by midnight (EST), TONIGHT! The winner will be posted later in the day.
Good luck, and have fun!!!!!

This project is based on the sketch, that comes in the kit. I turned it into a 12# Shadow box.
