String Art Ornaments and Matching Boxes


Hello Bloggers!

I am sharing a few of the string art ornaments that I put together last week.  If you are my regular blog reader, you knew I had about 100 of these string art already made over the Summer and just waiting for me to put them together into something.  And the holiday season is not too far away so I thought I put a few of them into ornaments.  The ornaments look the same on both sides and I am into matching set lately so I made each ornament a matching box.  I was thinking of making a matching card to go with the ornament but I didn't have time so may be next time.

















I was very happy with the result and I especially happy with the boxes.  Each box used just one 8 1/2 x 11 card stock.  I will share the measurement of the box another time.

I had a few of these ornaments on my Esty shop or if you are interested in purchasing the one that is not in my Esty shop email me.  I tried the ornaments on a Christmas tree and they looked so nice!  This picture didn't tell much.



I am entering this to

Make It Monday
Inspire me Friday

Thanks for stopping by.

These are beautiful, Helen, especially the blue and white snowflake. See you on Friday. I ran into Joan today and she is working at Riddle on Friday, so you will probably see her too.
