I started with regular cardboard. We have enough Amazon boxes laying around from Christmas present orders. I used a mason jar to make the circle and ripped off the top layer of cardboard. I'm sure you've used this technique, if not, you should. Each time it rips differently. Makes for messy but unique backgrounds.
I had these little wooden people I painted and glittered for another project that didn't work out so I'm using them here. Added cute little glittered wings creating angels.
To pack up the ornaments for gifties I swiped paint on white bags, stamped 3 angels, glued on gathered crepe leftover from another project and cut a tree shape out of mat board and covered it with wrapping paper.
