Altered Christmas Ornaments

I altered a few ornaments for the November ornament swap on Yahoo Groups.
These were very easy to work with and they turned out better than I expected. I hope the swappers like them. Inspiration from Nicole Crafts catalog and Somerset Studio. TFSB!

SSSS Cigar Box Swap - Halloween

Here is the Cigar Box that I created for my partner for the Secret Squirrel Cigar Box Swap hosted by Jade on Facebook. I used a fabric panel and mod podged to the cover, I also added a crackle effect to the entire box, then embellished with lace, orange trim, WOC black roses and flatbacked pearls. Then for the inside I added a Happy Halloween sticker, ribbon trim and a ruffled trim to form a pocket with a orange pull bow, then filled with goodies. I enjoyed making this box. I want to thank Jade for allowing me to join in and participate. TFSB

YPP Flower Swap & Upcycle Paper Bag Swap- Halloween

I participated in two swaps for the month of Sept. These are the flowers and paper bags that I made for these Swaps over at YPP. As you can tell the theme was Halloween and was really fun to make. One great channel is SaCrafters she has wonderful videos on how to make fabric flowers and trims. TFSB
