Paper Mache Box Ornament

Last year at a Paper Source store I bought these beautiful paper mache ornaments that I decoupaged with patterned paper. I really want to get back to one of those stores, but I don't know if I can. If I ask my mom, I'd bet she'd go with me to help keep the girls quiet. Since I can't make it there yet, I bought a paper mache oval box at Michaels and made it into an ornament. A Muse and ovals go hand in hand, so this worked out great (well, I think so, anyway).

I added the little bell to the bottom, just for interest, but it would have been better if it were a wee bit bigger. I also added detail to the lid:

I have another idea brewing for some Martha Stewart product I found while I was at Michaels, too, so stay tuned. PLUS! Don't forget to check out all the A Muse designers' and instructors' blogs Monday for sneak peeks for the new release!

I love the box idea. You could even hide treats in there for the kiddies.
