My niece graduated from high school this year and as her school career comes to an end so too has her ballet dancing tuition so I thought it would be fitting as I want to give her a gift card for her Christmas gift, to create a card holder/tree ornament that would remind her of her ballet dancing (she has been attending ballet lessons since she was 3 and she is now 17).
I found a template on the Family Fun site- get it HERE (they have some other fun stocking variations too).

Using the guidleines in the following challenges I turned the Ballet Stocking into a Winter Wonderland with a caroling theme:
SCS Ways to use it challenge: Let's go Carolling- Let It Snow
Pile it On: Tinsel Town - glitter
Cupcake Craft Challenges: Sing a Christmas Carol- Let it Snow
The Cuttlebug Spot: Gift packaging- Ballet Stocking
Crafty Card Makers: Alternative Christmas- Colors and Ballet Stocking
I used Cosmo Crickets new Christmas line Jolly by Golly and bazzill card. I embossed the white card with my Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder and added glitter to the snowflakes and houses. I constructed the snowman by cutting out of the patterned patter and piecing him together.
I have other ballet related gifts I have made to share later today so be sure to check back.
