With one month left until Christmas, I was utterly pleased when I got word today that the first set of Christmas Ornaments has reached it’s new home!
The following set of Tart Tin Ornaments was made by Irene in Arkansas, USA for Margie in Northumberland, England:
This is what Irene had to say about making the ornaments:
I purchased the tart tins at a local antique store. I painted them with gesso then I painted them with a cream colored acrylic paint. I used graphics from your site. Attached Tim Holtz pearl charms and some seam binding ribbon. I have been collecting vintage tart tins for a while now so when you announced your swap I knew I wanted to join the group.
And what Margie said when receiving them:
I am so pleased to let you know that I received Irene’s lovely trio of altered tart tins today and they are just fabulous! I am so thrilled with them – could you thank her very much for me and they will certainly become keepsakes to be brought out for many years to come.
I LOVE Irene’s ornaments, and I am so very happy that she decided to join the first ever swap here on WoW! Please share in the comments what you think of her ornaments, I think they are worthy of some extra special blog love 😀 😀 😀
I am also very exited to see that Irene chose to use graphics I have shared here on WoW before (although there was NO obligation to do so!!!), to make these wonderful little creations, thus I’m able to point you to my post, so you can ALL make your own copies of Irene’s magic pieces 😀
Did you miss out on the planning of this swap? This is what my swappers signed up for back in September:
- Each swap is for a set of 3 ornaments. Either 1 tart tin swap or 1 cookie cutter swap, swapped with one swap buddy
- Deadline November 15th to craft your ornaments, take pictures and get the packages ready
- Send pictures to me of the finished ornaments
- Alert me when the swapped ornaments arrive at their new home
