This past week the muse decided I should be making small boxes out of my stash of Gelli prints, so at 2 am I was up and at it.
These prints were done on card-stock weight paper, and I've created complementary bottoms to go with the prints on top. The majority of the bows are crafted from mop-up cheesecloth (you can find the tutorial here). Ranging from 3" square to 4" x 5", they're the perfect size for miniature anything. I love it that they're unique and hand-crafted - all I need to do now is fill them with gifts.
I even made a tree ornament for an ornament swap over on Google+. This one was far harder to do because the dimensions were so small (I think about 1.5 x 2.5").
The ornament swap was a something new, as it's usually tags we exchange. The theme was bling, and because I'm not normally a bling-y person, it was a challenge. I tarted up this miniature shoe for the recipient as well.
In one of my studio sessions this week, I finished another cigar box. You can see my beloved Kroma Crackle is front and centre again.
With a dozen more projects on the go, and a day spent baking for Christmas yesterday, I'm feeling very virtuous. I hardly had to use the Procrastination-Away Spray at all this week.
Feel free to post a link to your creations in the comment section - we'd love to see what your pre-Christmas frenzy looks like!
