The Makery is back! And how fitting that I should choose to use up some mysteriously acquired Britney Spears stickers for my comeback project, no?
As often happens lately, I'm not 100% satisfied with the final product. I think in order for these to work as ornaments, they should perhaps be round. As is they look more like bookmarks, which was my original idea but later decided Christmas tree ornaments made way more sense. Rounder and shinier. But as is, in addition to stickers of Brit on the front and back, they include a hand-embroiderd heart outline around her face:
...and a red gemstone used to dot the "i":
The stickers I discovered during our recent cross-country move (the primary reason for the Makery's several months long hiatus). I can't recall if I bought these myself or if they were some sort of gag gift (I remember Neal sent me the CD of her second album while I was participating in a work exchange program one summer in France...I swore it was a gag gift but secretly listened to that CD all summer), but either way they seemed fitting material to use for the Makery's comeback project. Britney is making a comeback, right?
I have enough stickers to make ten of these and may continue tweaking them. But for the time being, I'll be giving one away here, and the rest will be available for purchase in my other Etsy shop. Need to add a little Britney to your Christmas tree? Leave me a comment on this post and I'll add your name to the drawing at the end of the week.
C'mon, you know you want to.
