Scenic Christmas Photo Ornament Box

With Christmas around the corner I thought I'd take a few to share this project I made for Authentique a few weeks back.  My son was born in November of last year.  So this time last year he was just a wee tiny little pea pod & mostly slept through the Holidays.  This year he's much more aware of his surroundings. So we decided to do more with him this year--amongst those things was taking a few Christmas photo action shots.

I wanted to display one of his photos on our Christmas tree as an ornament.  So I created a mini winter wonderland ornament for him to sit in!  :-)

The box is made from heavy card stock & dressed up with papers from Authentique's 'Joyous' line. 
Around this time of year--just about all arts & crafts stores carry Christmas decorations.  I bought several decorations that are meant for miniature Christmas trees.  These mini decorations are just the right size to create your own version of a mini dimensional ornament.

The ornament box measures 5" inches x 4" inches. 
The decorative bird I also found at my local craft store--just think 'small' when browsing around the Holidays!  All of these small but dimensional embellies make for all sorts of unique projects.

The 'snow' was created by putting down a bit of clear dry adhesive & white Flower Soft.
I was able to fussy cut my son from one of the photographs & I adhered him to the background with a couple of pop dots to give him a bit of dimension.

Here's the back of my ornament box.  I strung some ribbon through the top & now I'm able to hang this ornament photo box onto my Christmas tree!

As always, a big thank you to all who stop by to visit.  I hope this project inspires some of you to create your own personal ornaments.

Enjoy the rest of the week...
