Paper Ornaments

For "Junk"le Bells in May

A page from an old paper back book, fan folded and secured with hot glue with a found Santa attached to the middle. I wanted to have mor of them made by now but just didn't get it done.

I included the photo I found on the internet where I got the idea. I think they would be cute made into a garland or banner spelling out MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Have a Happy Holiday!

Tin Thing Do Over

Found this tin piece at GW, it is not old don't know what it was used for, maybe as a gift holder of stuff for you bath or body! Well anyway I liked it and didn;t know what I was going to do with it, untill now. I used the button garland to put around the rim, added a cattle tag and some more buttons and stenciled some letters around the side.

Added a glass serving dish, walaa a great way to serve something, cookies, veggie tray or whatever!

Here it is! Whatever it was!

Thanks for your ideas of what it may have been, still not sure, but that is OK~!

Here it is finished, whatever it was or will be. I took some photos of the finished piece( well so far) top or bottom?

A microwave plate or glass turntable will work.

Although cupcakes will look better, I used this cake for photo purposes! Hmm, looks like cupcakes will fit around the cake!
*Note to self, add a doily or something else to livin it up a bit!

? What Was It ?

Not sure what this was or even what it will be, all I know is that I like it! Found it at a flea market, thought it might be something you put in a pot for canning fruits and vegetables, but I don't think it was that. Maybe something to put in a roaster? Well anyway, I liked it the way it was but I wanted to do something to it, so for a quick redo I wrapped it with fabric that was torn in strips, and wound it around the frame.
Added - It is about 12 inches in diameter

So, does anyone know what it is or what it could become?
Oh yeah, it is finished, I accidentally erased the finished photo! The one idea I have for it is adding a large plate and serve cupcakes on it for an upcoming party!
