Wow. Sorry for the lack of posts... funny thing about making handmade Christmas gifts is that you can't post pictures of them on your blog until after Christmas or the receiver will see! That's my excuse anyway. So stay tuned after Christmas to see what else I've been making.
Each year, my husband and I give each other an ornament. This year it was so fun to open up our decorations box and see all the special ornaments from years past. I have been searching starting before Halloween and could not find what I wanted. Then a few days ago I was wandering around Michael's and saw these paper mache boxes. DING DING. The light went off in my head and I knew what I would do.
I covered the box in festive paper, slathered everything in Mod Modge and pieced together a poinsettia to go on top. The tag says, "Nine Memories from 2009."
I wrote down nine of the biggest events of the year, rolled up each memory and put them inside the box.
