House ornament

In the ongoing ornament swap I chose @marionberries and the theme of tiny houses. Marionberries told me she had a foster cat mom & three kittens in her house, and I decided to combine them into the ornament!

I found a picture of a vintage Christmas card and printed it out, glued it to some hard cardboard, glitter-ModPodge’d it, added glitter for snow, and attached it to the front of an Altoids tin. Then I had some candy-cane striped washi tape, and used that on the sides of the tin. I found two illustrations of three cats that are sort of like her foster kittens, glitter-Mod-Podge’d them and glued them on the back of the tin & inside the tin. I added red glitter, glued the ribbon to the outside, and done!

I like the idea that the tin became a kind of house itself, and the scenes are like looking in and looking out. And now the ornament commemorates the year she had foster kittens for Christmas. :slight_smile: :evergreen_tree: :gift:

Adorable! I love that you included the kitties!! I’m sure it’ll be a treasure she’ll look forward to adding to her tree each year.

I LOVE this tin! How it shows the kitties from inside and out… and the vintage card… and all the glittery parts…
