It’s another KitCat Sunday and the Kittens are celebrating a heart-felt, homemade Christmas!
Kitten Kelly was our hostess, and she challenged us to create an ornament & gift tin for someone who may not otherwise receive a gift this year. Talk about your warm fuzzies! I think it's a fantastic challenge, and I hope we will inspire YOU to do the same!
Naturally, Kelly’s kit was *bursting* with supplies, including a CD tin and wooden ornament shape along with beautiful papers, ribbons, flowers, glitter glue, bling, and more!
I was immediately drawn to the I Believe! papers from My Mind’s Eye and the glittery red cardstock from DCWV. Even though an image wasn’t a requirement, I just couldn’t resist coloring up the darling image from SU's Greeting Card Kids. I just love the old-school look of these images!
For the tin, I created a paper patchwork, tied the ribbon to hide the seams, and created a cute little winter bouquet with the flowers, cord, snowflake, & glitter brad. The rhinestone star gives a nod to the ornament shape inside.
For the ornament, I sponged the edges with SU Rose Red then painted them with the glitter glue. Then I added a frame cut from the glittery CS and a background from the DP, and made another winter bouquet. I also covered the back with a different DP and added the silver cord hanger.
I had so much fun and such a great feeling in my heart when I was making these, because I knew exactly who would receive them: an elderly widow who calls our office every now and then for advice about this and that. I’m going to send it anonymously and write on the card that a Christmas angel is thinking of her. I hope it warms her heart as much as it does mine!
Sending a warm hug and a big thank-you to Kelly for reminding us to count our blessings, no matter what we may be experiencing, because there are always others who are less fortunate that we.
Be sure to visit the other KitCats to see their wonderful heart-felt, handmade Christmas creations!
