I apologize for the delay on posting the 12th day... it was my own gift to the others in the swap... in other words, this gift is from me!
I'm not going to include a photo of the packaging primarily because I didn't take a photo of the packaging before I sent them out, but if you can picture this in your head: I took an ordinary envelopes (greeting card sized ... either A-2 or A-6), put my gift inside and sealed the envelopes. Then I wrapped the envelopes in Santa Claus-y wrapping paper, put stamps and a mailing label on them and sent them on their way. Nothing really all that spectacular, but, maybe a little more interesting than an average envelope. Right? Right? (make me feel better, would ya?)
Anyway, the ornaments that I made for the swap were made using a paper coaster base, which I then collaged. Each of the ornaments were a little different because I didn't have 12 of the same image to use. I wanted to create something utilizing items that I had on hand, and for the most part, I accomplished that. Here are some photos:
I hope that everyone liked the ornaments I made, I did put a lot of time into them and they were fun to create.
I look forward to next year's swap, and I promise that I shall put more effort and thought into the packaging! I promise!
