gifts for gram's nurses

My gram is finally progressing well since her surgery (she had her esophagus removed due to cancer) and she's coming home next week! She wanted a little gift to give her favorite nurses. She requested something with angels as she calls them "her angels". This is what I came up with late last night. I had some glass ornaments yet to be altered so I stamped the only angel image I had onto acetate with Staz-on black ink, then I cut it with my circle scissors plus. Before I placed her in the ornament, I covered her wings and robe with some glue and dazzling diamonds glitter and stamped the you are incredible sentiment also. Then, I just rolled it up like a flatbread sandwich and shoved it in and let it unroll. Then I added a little buffalo snow and viola', a personal ornament! I HAD to make a quick box for presentation, so they are not as ornate as I would have liked, but still cute for short notice. Thank you all for your well wishes for Gram - she sure is one tough lady!
