I made two different groups of ATCs this month. The first was a series of paper ornaments. The above is a picture of one of them. I was thinking of those wonderful glass ornaments that they made 50 or 60 years ago that were round but indented on one side. I have always liked those ornaments. The inside color was made by melting crayon shavings between two pieces of waxed paper. This gives it the look of stained glass.
The other ATCs took me a little longer to make. We had to make Christmas books with papercuts. I decided to use the first verse of the carol Good King Wenceslas. The book needed more than just the cut to make it work, so I added watercolor to it. The following are all the pages in the book.

I liked the way it turned out, but I think I could spend some time on my handwriting.
