Just recently I was involved in a Christmas Ornament Swap over at Etsy Cottage Style. That was the swap in which I had created the Pinecone Ornament (see earlier post). My partner was Sharon Kyser and she makes the most gorgeous jewelry (along with papercrafted items). You can visit her blog at Shardon Exclusives. She spoiled me rotten! The box shown above was even decorated---I love it!
Check out the ornament below: It just blows me away! The beading is incredible! How does one do that?!
Below is another ornament (angel) and the red block is actually a cover to a square pad of sticky notes! Below that picture are two other papercrafted ornaments--I love the vintage look of them. As you scroll down, you'll see the earrings---gorgeous! stunning! I LOVE them! I'm going to upload a closeup and will post tomorrow or Sunday. The earrings came in a box decorated with a vintage earring. I can't wait to wear them!
And below is the inside of the cover and the inside of the box--How many people do you know of who decorate the inside of gift boxes?! Sharon, you rock!
