Tim Holtz Inspired Gift Box with Altered Dollar Store Ornament

 Hello Crafters!!!!  Today I wanted to share a project created with one of those little Church ornaments that come from this years Dollar Store selection.  The church is so cute, I knew I would alter and create something with it.    
 The Church was alter with Sizzix Holiday Greens, and Yvonne Creations Poinsettia with little silver bead centers.  The flowers were colored with Tim Holtz Broken China Ink.  The Poinsettia leaves are colored with Peeled Paint.  I'm loving that forest behind the church.  It reminds me so much of the little white Churches here in the South.
 Don't you just love the Tim Holtz Sizzix Noel Sign.  It's just one of those go-to dies for Christmas Projects.  What makes it so wonderful is that you can cut it out on light weight chipboard for a sturdy little sign.  Hey Tim, do you think we could get a die like this that says "Believe" or "Joy".....lol
 Here's the back.  My church is mounted on a Dollar General Christmas Gift Box.  I picked up a whole bunch of them on clearance last year for 10 cents a piece.  I altered the box with designer paper inside and out to match the project.
So I was thinking when I was putting this together that this would make a wonderful gift for your Pastor and his wife for Christmas filled with candy or homemade goodies or even someone special in your church family. 
And........just for giggles......here's a pink one!!!  Haha.....I can't resist Pink for Christmas.  Isn't it pretty!  So I am off to make a "traditional" Christmas colored one next.  You know....plain ole red and green.....lol  I can show it to you in the next couple of days or so.    Many thanks to all of you for sticking with me in my absence.   I have been crafting and have lots to share.  Be sure to come back as I will be posting again soon.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting!

My jaw has fell on the floor! These are absolutely exquisite! I'd much rather alter one of these ornaments than (purchase) put together one of those die cut houses. I'm far too lazy (cheap) for that! Absolutely stunning inspiration and well done on picking up the boxes for a dime! Geeze Louise! Such a wow project. Hugs, Autumn

Wow Carol, you've certainly made up for lost time as they say! They are amazing, I'm in awe trying to look at every book and cranny. I've never seen any of those church ornaments in my dollar store. I would love to get my hands on some of them. I love silver and gold, I bet they'd be pretty with those colors too. Glad to see you back crafting. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
