Buffalo Plaid is all the rage right now. I especially love my plaid purse I picked up on ebay last year. It is what inspired me to create this holiday ornament.
There is plenty of texture in this shadow box ornament--from plaid, to billowy wisps of snow, to deep black glitter.
To make this ornament, begin by assembling the Fold Up Box Oval and covering both the inside and outside with plaid paper. Use a utility knife to cut out the oval window.
Ink the edges with embossing ink, cover with Black Magic Embossing Powder and activate with heat gun. Assemble the two pieces of the box and adhere together with glue.
Paint a plastic toy deer with matte medium and cover with black glitter.
To finish your box, print a message on your home printer, adhere it to some glitter paper and glue it to the front of your box.
All that is left is to hang your ornament on your tree! -Betsy
