If you're on the Castle Crier email list, you have already heard about the newest little friend to be found at Castle in the Air -- The Snow Baby! This cutie sits atop a glittery snowball, one that is secretly a box that opens to reveal candies or whatever other holiday treats you put in it.
The Snow Baby Box project was sparked by my visit to the awe-inspiring Golden Glow of Christmas Past convention this summer, where over 1000 aficionados of antique holiday ornaments get together to swap stories and vintage items. There were so many little Snow Babies there made of cotton batting and wire. I knew I'd have to try my hand at making one when I got home.
We've posted the instructions for making your own Snow Baby Box at the Castle in the Air Online Shoppe homepage. You can also pick up the Snow Baby Box Kit there -- enjoy!
