An Enchanted Princess

This past Saturday I shared over at 
SIMPLE STORIES
  a perfectly adorable and "Enchanted" door hanger for any little princess in your life!

I started with a sheet of heavy weight chipboard and an album die from Top Dog Dies
but any pre-made chipboard shape would work. Next, I cut the shape from the
 "Dreams Come True" paper and distressed around the edges with a
 walnut ink before attaching to the chipboard base.

The edge was trimmed in a pom pom ribbon along the back of the chipboard.  
For a nice finishing touch, I also covered the back in a coordinating paper.

The focal point of the hanger was made with a couple of die-cut hearts from the 
 Enchanted 6X6 Paper Pad and the center piece is a smaller chipboard shape 
hosting the sweet sentiment that was cut from the 4X6 Journaling Card Elements paper.

Extra dimension was added with various chipboard stickers pieces, decorative Bradz,
 Enamel Dots and Bits & Pieces die cuts.  To create the hanger, two holes were 
punched at the top and a strand of 1.5" grosgrain ribbon was strung through and then
 knotted at the ends.  Two boutique style bows were made and then attached
 above the knotted ribbon ends.  Now it's all ready for gift-giving or hanging!

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…
