Authentique & Petaloo

We love, love, love teaming up with Petaloo at 
This past week was filled with all sorts of designs combining products from the
two companies...there is also a giveaway, so check out the blog for more information on that.

I have a quartet of sweet ornaments using Authentique's Joyous Collection
and goodies from Petaloo, such as flowers, buttons, trim, stickers, etc.

 For the base of each ornament I started with a corrugated banner shape. 
 From the "Magical" 12X12 paper, I cut the different motifs and then attached them
 to the banner with foam adhesive.

 Reindeer ornament- I cut the green doily shape from one of the 6X6 Bundle papers and
 layered on one of the stickers from the collection.  Two of the small poinsettias and 
pearl stick pin from Petaloo were added.

 Believe ornament- Before attaching the cut-out, a band of crochet trim was added
 to the back of the piece.  All of the buttons were adhered with a large glue dot, with the 
exception of the center button, which was hand-stitched in place.

 Checking it Twice ornament- Two leaves were die cut and embossed from the 
green 6X6 Bundle papers.  A large Petaloo poinsettia was studded with a small sequin embellishment and then clustered on top of the leaves with two foam candy canes, also by Petaloo!

 'Tis the Season ornament- the top of the banner sticker was adorned with a
 horizontal and of Petaloo treats!  Because the backs of the buttons include shanks, 
I removed them before attaching with glue dots.

Have fun creating little pieces of art in each ornament...think of each as a collage
and layer on as many sweet embellishments to bring charm and sparkle to your holiday decor!
The corrugated banner pieces are by SEI and come in a large pack.

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
