Ornament Swap

My Bible study at St. John's is having an ornamet swap. We'll exchange them at a Christmas luncheon. I choose this ornament with a lovely carved nativity after looking at dozens of ornaments. I decided it deserved a special box... but not just any box, an explosion box. Have you seen them? When you lift the top off, the sides of the box fall open (explode) to reveal the contents! I used the envelope die, Seasons of Style dsp and cherry cobbler 12 x 12 cardstoock. Oh and those pretty little sparkley things? They are called Frosted Finishes embellishments. On the inside of the box I used more of the same package of dsp and the Christmas Collectibles stamp set and coordinating punch. I layered the ornaments on old olive and cherry cobbler and the decorative label punch. To hold the ornament I cut a half inch strip of cardstock and glued it into a circle and glued that to the bottom of the box. I really had fun making it:-D
