Technique Tuesday at Scrapbooker's Paradise

Hi everyone!

It's my turn to host Technique Tuesday at Scrapbooker's Paradise, and I created a Christmas ornament with a piece of the chipboard from Bo Bunny's Silver and Gold collection that I have loved from the moment I saw it!

I explain all about how I made it on the SP blog, so do check it out - I think you will be a little surprised to find out what the base is made from!
This ornament is going to be a Christmas gift, and after it was finished I started thinking about how I would wrap it.  Alda at the Flying Unicorn, always says presentation is everything, so I wanted to make something special to present it in.  After sorting through my stash of goodies in the basement, I discovered the ornament fits very neatly in the back of a 5x7 inch canvas frame!  So I set about decorating the frame to match my ornament. 
Let me tell you, Scor-tape was my best friend during this process!

After covering the back with Scor-tape, I painted the wood on the inside with Inka Gold "Old Silver".  (Just spritz some water in the jar and dab your paint brush in - it's not just for rubbing on!)  Then I covered the back with some plain white ribbon from the dollar store.

Next I added an open weave ribbon over top, some white and silver ribbon, and some flowers and pale gold bling.  The darling reindeer from the Silver and Gold collection was cut out and score-taped onto the inside.

I tucked my ornament in, and now it's ready to be wrapped and put under the tree!
Thanks for stopping by today.  Alberta has been hit by a huge blizzard.  Roads are closed as travel is very dangerous and there's a 4 foot snow drift in front of our front door that makes getting in and out very difficult.  We keep shovelling and the raging winds keep filling it back in.  It was a very good day to stay inside and create a Christmas gift!  I hope you enjoyed viewing it and got some inspiration to create one of your own.
Stay warm everyone!
