glitter church

made this church last year and it is my first one.  I constructed it out of heavy cardstock and the windows I printed on a semi clear type of paper, not sure what it is called.  I then put clear finish on them and when dried , glued to the openings.    I have fun making these and now I have to make sort of a large house to go with the church.

Some Christmassy finds

I found a pretty beaded Christmas tree in a cloche at the Goodwill. I rearanged the ornaments and did a little fluffing.   I only paid $6.25 for it.  I may try to put some little lights around it, if I can find some small enough. 

My sister found me this topiary form, it 's picked bald, but I will probably put ivy on it.  I know it doesn't look like much now, but it will when I finish with it and put some
little lights on it for christmas.    

These two guys have been held hostage in this little shed out back since last Christmas, Grandchildren like them, They do look pretty happy waving from the window.

Scrap gift boxes

 I finished off popcorn and some cereal bars, oh well, someone had to do it.
I decided the boxes would make a good size gift box, I have some gifts that would fit them just right.
So I got out my papers , glue, scissors, and string and ribbon and started covering and gluing.  I used this very old paper punch to punch the holes in the box.   I made my gift tags out of cardstock 
and then  cut a scence from the paper to match the box.

There is one thing wrong with the white and red box.  If you can tell, let me know.   My husband saw it right away,  so now his gift will go in this one.

I am working on my little houses at this moment,  I love these little things, I hang the smallest on the tree.  I give as an ornament along with a gift to a few.  
Here they are unfinished,  will post the finished ones later. " Little glitter houses" is a site that I get some  ideas from.  There are many out there. 

The yellow one I will repaint and change the look of the roof.  The blue one needs glitter and extra stuff.  I say stuff because it hasn't hit me as to  what I want to do with that one.
