Using a vintage skirt hanger, the Grapic 45 Christmas Emporium collection, and lots of fun vintage treasures I was able to design and create a beautiful holiday creation/keepsake full of memories of me, my mom and her mom. Below is a listing of included items starting at the top right and working from row to row, to the bottom:
1) Santa's lost button (he lost one at our house last year by the tree) 2) An altered Flinch card (25) 3) Santa with reindeer pulling his sleigh postcard (Graphic 45)
4) Music tag with page from a 1900 hymnal 5) Key to let Santa in the door hung from an vintagae tie tack 6) Vintage bingo card filled with vintage trinkets (jack, marble, typewriter key, domino, chess piece, marbles, etc.)
7) Oh Christmas Tree made from multiple layered Tim Holtz die cuts and a twig 8) Shiny Brite ornament 9) Crochet snowflake hooked on with a crochet hook 10) "M" is for "Merry" wood printers block
ROW #3 11) Aluminum Santa Cookie Cutter 12) Sewing Projects Tag with vintage clothespin 13) Pack of Clove gum (ummmmmm) 14) Vintage Christmas card in original envelope from 1960 15) Original Bob's candy Cane
ROW #4 16) The end of the trinket banner with stamps (Graphic 45), authentic vintage sleigh bell, pinecone, toy drum ornament, knitted mitten) 17) Photo Album 18) 45 record is an album with the story of The Night Before Christmas inside
19) Naughty or Nice list mounted on a wine cork
Phase two is to put vintage and current family photos on the back of the items to complete the piece which will hang above the table in the kitchen.
