Are you familiar with Shiny Brite ornaments? I have been collecting vintage ornaments for years (Remember this nostalgic tree of mine?) and many of those ornaments are Shiny Brite. As a fan, I thought it was too cute that someone had made a dollhouse-size replica of the iconic box!
I found this print-your-own "Shiny Brite" ornament box for a dollhouse free online and couldn't resist making one for my friend, Beth's daughter. She is in elementary school and already understands what it means to "finding delight."
When I visited the family last summer in Kentucky, I got a tour of her dollhouse, met the little doll family and admired the work she had done arranging things inside.
I think this ornament box will look perfect, displayed just so under her dollhouse Christmas tree, don't you? The printable box and instructions are online here. I put a few tiny ornaments that I found at Michael's Craft store inside. I love it!
If you are interested in reproduction ornaments in the vintage Shiny Brite-style, look no further than Christopher Radko. He does a beautiful job making new heirlooms that live up to the Shiny Brite name.
