Welcome to the…
I am so excited today to be part of this blog hop featuring holiday ornaments and home decors! I hope you find inspiration and enjoy this blog hop!
For this special occasion I created a couple of different ornaments very easy to make. ..
To create each ornament, I used an 8.5 x 5.5″ piece of stamped white card stock (I used Leaves, Berries & Branches and Pale Tomato Ink), and an 8.5 x 5.5″ piece of Layering Paper (Punch color). Next, I die cut 12 circles (2.25″ approx). Then, I scored and folded each of them in half. After that, I glued them together, alternating the flat sides of the circles (stamped cardstock and layering paper). Finally, I threaded a jingle bell with hemp, and passed it through the middle of the ornament, I added a golden bead, and I made a knot. I made more ornaments using different colors, and I just loved how they look together. Quite a simple idea, and very fun to make.
To make my ornaments, I gold and silver embossed Hero Arts stamps directly on the wood (Leaves, Berries & Branches + Merry &Bright Holidays). I also added glitter ribbon and a small screw eye. At the very end, I added some gems and gold cord.
