At the bottom of my post is a full list if you get lost along the way.
 
Here's what I've come up with...
 
This sweet little shaker box ornament is packed FULL of LSG and 7 Dots Studio LOVE!!  And snow.  'Cuz what's a shaker box without a bit of snow?
 
 
I chose to use a neutral paper with just a few pops of Lindy's vibrant color and sparkle for the inside.  DIG the color and glitter on that bottle brush tree!
 
 
And here's the back...

 
Lovin' all those layers!
 
7 Dots Studio paper is rockin' some of the best texture around.  Add to that  a touch of Lindy's Starburst sprays and stitching??
 
Divine!!
 
 
I'm a big fan of soldering, but wanted to find a way to create the look of a soldered piece that even my non-soldering crafty friends could manage.
 
Enter washi tape!
 
A bit of lightweight acrylic, washi tape and some GLITTER later and I had myself a hand-crafted ornament that would make any soldering gun jealous ;-) 
 


 
Here's a list of product I've used:
