I pulled out a sound chip module out of a birthday card I had received and attached it to the side and base of the box. Once the sides fall down, the song begins...
The song is "Ladies Night" so I found an ornament that would tie in with that song... Champagne and chocolates of course! Because isn't that what we all drink/eat when we have a "ladies night?" *wink*
I then used black construction paper to cover the edges so it would have a really nice finished look to it when it was completed.
I then cut patterned glitter paper for the outside of the box and silver glittered paper for the inside. I also created a little pedestal with an oval cut out of it to help cradle the ornament and to house the music chip module. I used white glue to attach all the papers and a glue gun to add the pedestal to the base. Lastly, I hot glued the glass base to the package and some poinsettias to the lid. Easy peasy~
It was a lot of fun to see everyone's reaction when the sides fell down and the ornament was revealed with the music playing. It was the first ornament to be picked by my friend Verlon whom I've known for years and years. She said it was nicer looking than her Christmas tree... which made me laugh out loud. My Christmas tree is a 2' high tree with the price tag still on it sitting on the table next to a container of newly bought ornaments. Yep. That is how I roll as I get older. My lovely white tree with all the fancy shabby chic ornaments are still up in the garage rafters.
I have a lot more parties on the horizon... with a lot more things I'm needing to get working on....so many parties and so little time to get everything finished! Who has time to decorate a tree. :-)
