Nutcracker Box Ornaments

54 days until Christmas! This set of four hand-painted ornaments strikes the perfect balance between traditional and modern holiday decor, like Oma’s pickle ornament hidden in the branches of an atomic aluminum tree. These little guys can be filled with surprises; the tapered boxes have hinged hats for concealing small gifts.

The set started out as holiday cards for Madison Park Greetings by the excellent Suzy Ultman, then the elves at Crate & Barrel brought them into 3D. Order the ornaments from Crate & Barrel and find the stationary that inspired them here.
