Star shaped box/ornament

Hi there! Today is my last day off. I can't believe how fast time is flying when you are having fun. I've done quite some crafting this week (mainly Christmas items) and I've been having a great time. One of the things I've made is also this Christmas box/ornament.

Last year around Christmas I saw Raffaello (you know, that yummy coconut candy)  in a pretty star-shaped box and I "had to" buy it - mainly because I wantedo to get the template for that box, but I didn't mind having some Raffaellos either. lol So, once the Raffaellos were gone, I took the box apart to get the template. And now, after almost one whole year (shame on me! lol), I finally made a box using that template. Is was so easy and so much fun to do! And with this sweet Tilda I think it makes a lovely Christmas ornament too. What do you think? I'm planning to make small soaps (IF I manage) to give out as Christmas gifts to the women in my family and they would fit perfectly in this box. But if I run out of time (this could easily happen since I'm often leaving everything til the very last minute *blush*) I'll just fill this box/ornament with some yummy candy. I'm sure no one would mind this eaither. :P

I made the star box/ornament out of white cardstock over which I stamped with different snowflake stamps. For the main image I used the cute angel Tilda swamp which I colored with Promarkers and later did the shading with Fabe Castell pencils. I know it's hard to see in the picture, but on Tilda's wings I added some diamond SticklesThe ribbon is from my stash. Those tiny stars were made with a sizzix die. In the middle of each of them I added a "pearl" using my Viva decor pearl pen. I also used Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle and Parisian accents dies.

I hope you like my today's project. :) Hugs! xx
