Crowns! and a Christmas Market

I love crowns. There's something joyous about them. Put one on your noggin' and suddenly the world seems like a brighter place, and your confidence gets an immediate boost. Crowns are good that way. It's their job.

For the base I've used lovely thick papers from Authentique's Faith collection. The pointy crown bit is die cut using A Gilded Life - Petite Monarch Crown Long Die. The flowers and leaves on the crowns are from Petaloo. You could use anything from their Botanica line and it would look divine :)

The crowns are finished off with some inexpensive clear acrylic snowflakes and a good dose of glittery snow.

I can't wait to take these to the Plum Pudding Market next Saturday! The market is a small Christmas sale I'm organizing, featuring 20 outstanding makers and artisans. If you're near, you should absolutely check it out. It's going to be a lot of fun :)
