. . . with a gift box for my Christmas tree.
"Discover" generally means to find out something that you did not previously know . . . about the world, about yourself, or about what is possible.
In Zentangle-speak, we often think of "discover" in terms of the artwork you create. By creating something new (compared with copying or coloring in something already there) you can discover something new and fresh at the end of the process – something that never existed before. That's one reason we don't pre-plan Zentangle art. How else can you enjoy the surprise and delight of discovery if you already know what you're about to find?
This "gift box" is made with two tangled Zendala™tiles and the tin that they came in.
The front cover art, by Molly, has a Bijouism attached to it with photo corners. The tiles are attached to the tin with double-sided tape. I sewed an old button to the ribbon, attached it with double-sided tape to the inside of the tin and then attached the cover.
Add some beads and doodads, charms or mini ornaments. Then fill it with surprises, cookies, candies or jewelry.
And hang it for your special person to DISCOVER something unexpected . . . from you.
