Christmas Ornament Swap

The lovely Vivian is hosting a Christmas Ornament Swap and I have joined in. We were to make 12 ornaments and have them wrapped ready to be received like 12 little gifts. It is so much fun getting this box full of wrapped ornaments from some wonderful crafters. Here is the gift tag on the front of my little package.
I took 8x11 music sheet pages, folded them in half and sewed them along three sides. Then I slipped the orni in and punched holes at the top. Added the ribbon and tag and they were ready to go. Here is what I made.
They are little burlap stockings with vintage lace, buttons and ribbons. I stamped the front with NOEL. Super easy and fun to make.
Each one is a little different from the next. I used different buttons and lace.

They are really sweet little ornaments, and the way you packaged them is just lovely.

What an awesome idea! Those are really adorable - I might have to make some of those myself. Where do I get burlap from? I'm thinking those would make great teacher gifts and maybe attach a gift card to our local coffee shop here. So inspiring! Love your tag too - what a great way to use photos. Have a really Blessed Thanksgiving weekend!


They turned out wonderfully!!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving--miss you girl!
