12 Days of Ornaments - Day 10!

Welcome to Day 10 of my 12 Days of Ornaments! Today I have a very special project for you. I have been fascinated by dioramas for as long as I can remember. When I was thinking up ornament ideas, I knew I would definitely be including one in some way.

I originally considering using one of Eileen Hull's older box dies, but then I remembered I had a brand new die - the Cookie Box - from her Vintage Kitchen collection, and I knew it would be perfect! Since it's a round box, I decided to give it the look of a hollowed out log. A little yule log diorama!

Today's ornament tutorial can be found over at the Inspiration Journal blog. Please check it out and let me know what you think! I hope you love it as much as I do.

Most of the supplies I used can be found at Inspiration Emporium via the links below. Remember to use my coupon code - stamptramp - to save 10% on your orde.

See you tomorrow for Day 10!
