I created this Ornament Decoration’s a few years ago when we had a similar stamp set and I CASE from the video shown at the end of this blog
But for now, here is my version of
The Chrismas Ornament Decoration’s
This is my version of this from then. I gave it as a gift with some handmade cards to the ladies that attended my card class. This is the only spare that I had left, but I made them in loads of different colours to match the tulle that I could get at the time from Spotlight. You don’t need a lot of it.
As soon as I saw the Brightly Gleaming Suite in the Holiday Catalogue I had to have it to give this ornament another go. I even found some of the tulles in a copper colour which I had in my stash from last time I made these.
Ornament Decoration’s titbits
You will need 20 of each ornament stamped or embossed. Then you will need to score 15 of the ornaments in half and fold them with the image on the inside of the fold. Using Tombow glue adhere three of the folded ornaments together and then adhere this bundle on to one of the ornaments that you have not scored, making sure the image is on the outside (you don’t want to glue on the stamped image) and stick these together.
Cut a circle with a retired punch (it only needs to be about 1 inch) and use this to adhere to tips of the ornaments to give them a base. Using a hot glue gun to adhere to the tulle in between the gaps and then I also used hot glue to adhere to the next layer of ornaments. The gap that is created in the middle is then covered up by this star, which is also adhered with hot glue and I just smooshed it down as far as it would go to make sure it was attached.
Lastly, I used my crop a dile to punch a hole in one of the ornaments and threaded through some ribbon and tied a knot. These can then be hung on your tree as a decoration or on some hooks in your lounge room. They look super awesome and the punches make this decoration come together so much quicker than when I did this a few years ago with the dies.
These ornaments are quite a bit smaller than the old ones so you need even less tulle this time.
I decided to make these for a team swap we have had for the Holiday Catalogue. This is a great way to get several projects, without the need for you to create them all and if you are lucky you may receive swaps using products you have not yet purchased. I’m looking forward to seeing what I get from the other participants so that I can then show all the fabulous projects to my team and my card class attendees.
