Christmas Gift Trimmings


Today I'm sharing a gift I made for my friend.  

She and I are gardeners, so I purchased a jar similar to this for her to display cut flowers in during the summer.

I've been fascinated with some of the little house domes I've seen on Pinterest, so I decided to try making one myself. 

I cut the little house on my cricut, scattered Stampendous Shaved Ice over cotton batting, and then added snow with Aleene's Glitter Snow texture paste.  The dome is half of an acrylic ornament.

I added a gift tag with a die in it of a little terrier since she just got a Cairn Terrier puppy this year!
The die that I used to make the gift tag enclosure is one I purchased from Catherine Pooler from the Candy Cane Lane SOA box.  It is an awesome die that cuts and embellishes all in one pass through the Big Shot.  I love its' elegant lines and the word "Joy" was a piece that came with it.

The dome is attached by lace ribbon which can slip off, leaving the jar ready for its original purpose!

She's a very special friend and I hope she likes it!!
