I spy ornaments

These have been all over the internet in the last couple years so it is nothing new, but my kids loved them last year and I am making up some for an upcoming craft fair so thought I would show you how I was boxing them up. 

I made my box from cherry cobbler cardstock and used crumb cake for the insert and the lid. The stocking paper was an old piece of scrap paper I had laying around. (Can't stand to cut up a new sheet for that little strip!!) 

Most of my ornaments were glass balls from Hobby Lobby but I was worried about breaking so these are actually plastic bulbs from Dollar Tree and you get 2 for $1.00 so you can make them for family pretty cheap. The only other thing I had to buy was the little beads that I used to put inside. You could use a multitude of other things but I liked these little beads. They came from Hobby Lobby also. The assorted buttons are from my huge stash that I have managed to collect but never use. 

 Here is a close up showing the insert that is in the box and it has a cut out that the ornament actually rests in so it doesn't move around much.  The directions for the box came from youtube and can be seen here

Don't forget to enter my contest that is going on through October 7th!  If you have not yet done so, you can check out the details on the post from Monday. It is really easy to enter. 

Also don't forget about the wonderful paper sale going on this month! Stock up while you can! I wonder if I get 4 or 8 more packs of the beautiful Christmas paper if I would be able to cut it for strips for my box, lol.  I can't be the only one who hates to cut into a sheet of pretty paper. 

Just click the pic to order! Use hostess code B34V447C and I will mail you a FREE GIFT!!!
