Paper Doily Die Day 3

Today's post is day three of things created using the Paper Doily Die.
I know...today's stuff is really more for Christmas, but the box could be used any time of the year. :) This ornament is actually the first thing that popped into my mind when I was coming up with ideas for all the projects I needed.  I didn't want to use the whole doily because I thought it might be a little big for a Christmas tree...at least it would be for ours, so I trimmed it down. I cut out eight doilies to make the snowflake, glued them together, sponged them on the very edges and sprayed them with shimmer paint mixed with alcohol.





Then I decided to make a box for the ornament...after all, that could be counted as another project. :)  I needed to figure out a way to use the die for the box, but didn't want to just cut out the pieces and put them on the box, so I cut out the die shape from the top of the box, put the doily piece over it (and under) so you could see into the box.



 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
