Another Gift Box with Glitter Ornaments

This is a gift box I made for my friend Peggy. All the papers are from the DCWV Homemade Christmas stack and the card stock is Michael's Recollections brand.
The 'doily' cut is from the Picturesque Cricut cartridge. I spritzed it with water and crumpled it, then  inked it with distressed ink and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint from Stampin' Up. I added a pleated strip ... also inked with the Champagne Mist.
The horn is from the French Manor Cricut cartridge. I cut each layer three times from a cream card stock and adhered them together. The horn was inked it with a bronze ink ... the valve piece was inked with brown. To finish, I embossed it with several coats of UTEE.
More Champagne Mist inked on the sides of the box, then I added a ribbon and some teal jewelry wire.

Here's a look at the glitter ornaments ... made using the 'floor wax' technique and Martha Stewart glitter. Check out this video for glitter ornaments instructions.
