Last minute handmade ornament

Hey!  Omg...are u crazy busy?  I am.  Whatever happened to "I will do it all much earlier next year"  lol  New challenge at Stampotique challenge blog:  "last minute Christmas ornament for your tree".  I just recently saw this tutorial over at Jill Berry's blog and it jogged my memory.  These little book ornaments are soooo addicting!   I had seen something like this long ago but her post was awesome.  Why not make them the "Stampotique" way?
I used some cereal box card board squares  2.5 x 2.5, two 3" dp scraps, one long 2.25 x 18" colored paper (I used some painty stuff :) ans some ribbon and beads . (Or you can make some paper beads too)
I wrote little Christmas messages inside of them but you can do what you wish....
Stamps used: gog lin, bird lady, wish, flying heart.  They really look cute on the tree and make a nice  keepsake.  On the keepsake note...I made another special one to give for the Christmas exchange at my art group meet up.  I LOVE my art group!

 I am fortunate to be with a great group of very inspiring ladies... :)
I decided to write on the inside all of the different projects we worked on  and our members' names .  Then I made a "treasure box" to keep it in.  :)

  THIS was so fun!  I scrounged up ever little goodie from my stash that I could find to stick on this box!
For a one night project...me likey!!  I think she did too!  Thanks for looking!

Things have been crazy busy on this end, too! This is the first holiday in nearly a decade I've lived around family and I think I forgot just how much more hectic (in a good way) that makes this time of the year! :)

What delightfully cool creations! I especially like the treasure box, it's so, so marvelous!

Happiest holiday wishes to you and your loved ones, my friend!
