Framed Jewelled Christmas Tree Christmas Ornament

Following on from yesterday I decided that the jewelled Christmas tree was a little to heavy and clunky looking for a card, but decided to make them a more permanent Christmas decoration by putting it in a box frame.

The frames measure 10.6 x 10.6 cms. As there was a ugly sticker on the back, that I couldn’t remove I decided to keep with the theme and cover it with a scrap of snowflake printed paper and add a message (talk about being ready for Christmas early!).

Pretty decoration for the holidays! I love your idea about the note on the back. Who knows...years from now little Iris's great grandchild may inherit one of these and wonder who made it. Your little note will be a fabulous reminder of his or her crafty ancestor.
