For my Homemade Holiday Gift I decided to create a glitter ornament for Hannah's cheer coach!
I started with a clear glass ornament and used Minwax Polycrylic inside the ornament and rolled it around to cover then added glitter.  The glitter sticks to the protective finish from the Polycrylic!  If you haven't tried one, they are lots of fun...
AND
Samantha just so happens to have several ornament boxes to gift your ornament in!

I am using this one:

She also has these:

Here is a look at my project:
I used vinyl to cut the coach in two colors and layered it on top of each other and then did the same with the megaphone and year.  I cut circles from three vinyl colors and randomly layered those on the ornament as well.  You can find the bow for the box HERE.

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out the box pieces and fold on the score lines.
2.  Add adhesive to the side tab and adhere the box sides together.
3.  Push your large flap down on the bottom then bring the side in and tuck under.
4.  Tuck the large tab in the bottom.
5.  Your box will look like this now.
6.  Set your ornament on the shelf.
7.  Place the ornament in the box.  Put the second shelf in to hold it in place.
8.  Close the box lid.
9.  Add in your box and embellish as desired!

These make such fun gifts!

Your next stop on the hop is Guiseppa Gubler!

Happy Hopping!
