Creative Inspirations Paint - Anything But A Card

2 Sisters - Holiday
Craft Your Passion - Tis The Season

I decided to make a box without a lid and turn it into an ornament for my Homespun style Christmas tree.

Project Recipe:
Image -
Paper - A Cozy Little Christmas by The Paper Studio
Medium - Copic Markers (for the mouse)
Ribbon - Michaels
Border Sticker - K and Co
Ornament and Bow Embellishments - K and Co
Brads - The Paper Studio

This is the sketch should you opt to make a card.

I paper pieced the stocking part of the image, such a great image to use this technique on.

Here is the finished ornament on the tree. I know there is a light near the paper, I moved it after I took the photos, I just wanted a little extra twinkling :)
I hope you have enjoyed this piece and will come over and play with us this week at The Pixie Cottage
