Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop: Metallics



Welcome to this month's 'Metallics' Blog Hop! I loved making this project, and could easily make more. The Big Shot and Delicate Ornament Thinlits make this a project you could duplicate over and over-  maybe a little teacher gift or just a little something extra dangling from the ribbon on that special gift. 

Homemade Christmas tree ornament, Big Shot, coaster board, Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies, pompom trim

Admittedly, I made this ornament a while back when the new Holiday catalogue first came out. As soon as I saw the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies and the Red Foil Sheets I knew I wanted to make a 3D ornament with them! They are the perfect dies to use for an ornament like this because they are symmetrical. I had a good laugh after I made it and then had a better look at the front cover of the Holiday catalogue and I realized I was not the only one to think of doing it! lol! laugh But that's okay- I made it my own. 

  • *I die cut the same ornament three times out of the Red Foil using the new Precision Base Plate for a nice clean cut
  • *Then used the solid shaped matching die to cut a base from the Vanilla Coaster Board. 
  • *I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score down the centers of the coaster board die cuts so that they would bend in the middle when I glued them together.
  • *Before I glued them together I placed the Silver Cording Trim through a Home for the Holidays poinsettia button and placed the button at the botttom of the ornament allowing the excess trim to come out the top for hanging. I tied the end of that and placed the tied piece inside the ornament to create a clean loop at the top.
  • *Then, I used some Multi- Adhesive to glue each coaster board die cut together at the edges and a bit in the center to hold the cording trim, and held them together for a bit while they dried. 
  • *Then, with the Fine Tip Glue Pen, I added adhesive to the backs of the Red Foil die cuts and adhered them onto the coaster board. 
  • *Once that was dry, I tied a bow of Silver Cording Trim and adding two bits of Red Pom Pom Trim to dangle on each side 

Now it's ready for hanging on my Christmas tree  🙂
