Quick and Easy Ornaments, Gifts or/and Gift Toppers

Digging through my Treasure Stash I came across 
some old Formica Swatches.

Big ones...

and little ones.

I knew there had to be something Christmasy
 I could do with these wonders

They were nice and hard and would make for a great backing to.....

I gathered a bunch of supplies:

and any other embellishments I could think of!

And of course Mod Podge!

I coated the Formica Swatch with Mod Podge.    

I placed my chosen background paper on top
and smoothed it on carefully so there were no wrinkles.

Once dry I trimmed the background paper to fit the swatch exactly.

I copied some old images I had, printed them, 
then cut them out using an Exacto blade.

I used Mod Podge to adhere them to the background paper 
and them embellished away!

Some received pearl strands and shiny clear gems ~
others were edged in vintage lace, pearls and trim.
I used coordinating ribbon for hanging.

On a few of the smaller ones, 
I used vintage images of women in their Christmas clothing.
A couple only have coordinating trim along the bottom.

Your imagination is the only limit!
This was a fun and quick project
for a stormy afternoon without electricity!
