Hello, Authentique fans! Shellye here with an ornament quartet showcasing the Joyous Collection and goodies from Petaloo.
For the base of each ornament I started with a corrugated banner shape. From the "Magical" 12X12 paper, I cut the different motifs and then attached them to the banner with foam adhesive.
Reindeer ornament- I cut the green doily shape from one of the 6X6 Bundle papers and layered on one of the stickers from the collection. Two of the small poinsettias and pearl stick pin from Petaloo were added.
Believe ornament- Before attaching the cut-out, a band of crochet trim was added to the back of the piece. All of the buttons were adhered with a large glue dot, with the exception of the center button, which was hand-stitched in place.
Checking it Twice ornament- Two leaves were die cut and embossed from the green 6X6 Bundle papers. A large Petaloo poinsettia was studded with a small sequin embellishment and then clustered on top of the leaves with two foam candy canes, also by Petaloo!
'Tis the Season ornament- the top of the banner sticker was adorned with a horizontal and of Petaloo treats! Because the backs of the buttons include shanks, I removed them before attaching with glue dots.
Have fun creating little pieces of art in each ornament...think of each as a collage
and layer on as many sweet embellishments to bring charm and sparkle to your holiday decor!

Hello again fellow crafters! Today I bring you a little wooden Christmas trinket box that I created by merging papers by Authentique's Joyous collection with Petaloo trims & flowers. What a fabulous combination this turned out to be!
I purchased this unfinished wooden box at my local craft store I then made it my own by adding paper, flowers & embellishments. A crafter's dream!
I tend to buy items that are not exactly designed for paper crafting. But then the perfect project comes along & I actually get to use them. That's how these little birds finally found a home. I have a couple of these in my stash & decided that they would look right at home sitting on top of this wooden box.
All flowers seen here are by Petaloo. I've combined one of their red Dazzlers flowers with an ivory Textured Layers flower to create the large flower seen on the lid. Next to this one there are two ivory Botanica mini flowers.
The tinsel seen on the cover & the trim going around the box are both from Petaloo's Dazzlers trim collection.
Three more flowers from the Botanica collection, one red Dazzlers flower & a poinsettia make up the flower cluster in the front of my box.
The inside of the box is decorated with papers & a cut out element from the Joyous collection.
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of the week!
