Dennis had a vision for this particular clown scrap… to design something theatrical that looks like he is popping out of a Jack-in-the box. I found an antique glass lantern ornament (like the springy material actually used on these kinds of toys) and attached the clown head, along with fun vintage wired bead decorations. I then crafted a card board box that I covered with antique lacquered red paper, and decorated all sides and top with Dresden papers and wonderful miniature antique die=cut musical angels and flowers. I added a crank handle made with twisted wire and antique glass bead. The result? Highly Victorian, scary, surprising, and wonderful all at once. This was great fun; I love the idea of making more ornaments with different subjects that “pop” out of boxes.
Lovingly handcrafted and signed by Gail Giaimo.
