One of my favorite symbols of Christmas is the star and today I've created a gift box celebrating this meaningful symbol. My favorite Christmas song is Silent Night and I was thinking of the amazing gift given to us, our Savior Jesus Christ, as I created this. I can't sing this song without getting teary as I picture the Savior as a beautiful baby, sent to us because of love, His mother Mary and the amazing tenderness I feel for her, and the miracles surrounding this season and each day of our lives because of our Savior. The true meaning of Christmas for me, is love, giving, and hope.
Buttons and glitter are two things I love combining. Buttons have a way of always being the perfect, added touch, but with glitter on top, they are even more irresistible and fun to use. I covered a paper mache star-shaped box in Krylon Celery acrylic paint, vintage trim, cream and white buttons, tea-stained twill, a glittered silver jingle bell, tea-stained tag, and Melissa Frances trim and flowers.
The stamp used on the tag is from Papertrey Ink's Signature Christmas set.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas season!
