Christmas Table Accessories
I created a mini pizza-style box using a tutorial found on Split Coast Stampers, cutting a hole in the top of the box with a circle nestie before assembling. I covered the hole with acetate and added a double layered frame - created with a set of nestie scalloped circle dies - over the top. I also made another frame with the same dies to cover the acetate join on the inside, it's a nice touch to finish the inside off neatly.
from white card, layered it up and added a clear droplet gem in the centre. Fosted Lace Stickles added around the edges of the frame and on the poinsettia gives a subtle sparkle. This adorable mini Magnolia image was just the perfect size to fit on the top of box and still allow a peek at the sweeties inside. I coloured Tilda with Copics and added touches of Spica Glitter pen on parts of the image.
This side view on the right shows the lacy edging which was created with a Magnolia lace edge stamp and cut out. A length of white satin ribbon and a sparkly brad were the finishing touches.
In this last picture, I've shown both the box and napkin ring laid out in a full setting to demonstrate how they would look on the table.
I am also very excited to be able to tell you that this project has been published in the latest issue of the 'Through the Craftroom Door' magazine. This is a subscription only magazine available electronically and/or in paper format. I was thrilled when Suzanne and Marti asked me to create this project specially for the magazine, it does feel a little unreal to see my work in print though!
That's it from me today, I do hope you'll drop by again soon, til then - Happy Crafting !
