Wednesday - Ornaments

If you're looking for the giveaway, click HERE!

So today I am going to show you a couple of ornaments that kept me busy and up to my ears in glue for a couple of hours but man....were they fun to make! So much fun that when I get some more time to play I'm going to be making some more ornaments. I'm going to have to find some that are a little bit easier so that I get my baby girl in on the fun! She's a mini me and is already showing signs of have a promising scrapbook career! LOL!!

Here’s a looksy at both of my ornaments:

I LOVE how this first one turned out!! I used the Imaginisce Santa’s Little Helper collection. It was fairly simple to make…all you need are 12 squares of 2” pieces of pattern paper rolled into cones for the outer layer and 12 squares of 1 ½” pieces rolled into cones for the inner layer. Be sure to add 4 pieces of ribbon in between the layers. And then add your center piece! Nothing much to it!

To make this second ornament, I used 13 pieces of pattern paper (2” x 4”), ran them through one of my border punches, glued them to make them into loops, and then glued them all together at the base of each loop to make a circle of loops. Then I added the center and a string to hang! So easy and so much fun! Actually the hardest part of this whole process was photographing it!

That's it for today! Tomorrow I'll be back with some ideas for gift wrapping and tags!! Thanks for stopping by!!
