Joe asked me to make an ornament in honor of his son graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis Maryland. I incorporated the USNA gold emblem and century-old postcard he sent me into a two-sided ornament. I created a cardboard circle-star frame the right size to accommodate the emblem and covered it with vintage cotton batting from an old tree skirt. I then used antique red and blue trims along with vintage gold Dresden borders and stars. On the other side I papered it with beautiful antique metallic silver paper and showcased an original the Naval Academy’s chapel in Maryland, and added more beautiful Dresden paper borders.
Lovingly handmade and signed by Gail Giaimo.
