Do you like to recycle or reuse packaging!?! Then this is the project for you! I remember seeing some similar ornaments, i don;t know how long ago, i couldn't;t exactly remember how they did it so i started playing around with my supplies and this is what i came up with!!
I cut a piece of cardboard from an empty shipping box and ran it through my die cutting machine. I tried this with several different dies and i found that Sizzix big thick dies worked the best for me, but you could really use any dies.
I choose a big snowflake shape (i found the bigger the die image the better) and i also die cut it from Kraft cardstock. Next i added some white paint around the edges and a little bit here or there, the idea is to give it a weathered look.
After the paint was dry i used glue to adhere some clear chunky flakes around all the edges. Set that aside to dry.
Meanwhile die cut a Kraft circle and adhere the chunky flakes around the circle. When that is dry stamp the sentiment in the center.
Last assemble the ornament. Adhere the sentiment circle to the front and embellish (i used 2 straight pins that matched the ink). Then create a loop from twine and adhere to the back, last adhere the kraft snowflake to the back.
So an easy ornament to make! Right!?! I hope this inspires you to make some ornaments this Christmas season!
Your next stop is the VERY talented Vivian!
