Now on to the project! I started with the Christmas tree from Hampton Art. I just love this tree! I stamped the tree on some linen fabric and let it dry for a minute. Then i stamped the other side, lining up the trees the best i could.
 

Next i punched a snowflake, tied a bow with some bakers twine. I placed a tiny sticker from Authentique on the snowflake center. I made another one of these an adhere both to each side of my fabric.


Next i used half of a globe from Globecraft Memories and filled it with a little bit of glitter. Then i adhered my fabric to the globe. After it dried i adhered the other half to the other side of the fabric. Just make sure the tree is in the middle of the globe!
 
 
Next i covered one rectangle with pattern paper. I only used one layer, but the kit came with 2 other layers. I wanted the ornament to be all about the tree!!
 
For the oval cut out, i used craft knife to cut out an oval. Then i cut along the oval ever so often. Then i folded those over the back of the rectangle
 
 
Then i used some double sided tape to adhere each flap. Then just to make sure they stayed down i outlined each flap with Glossy Accents. Do this for both rectangles (the front and back of the ornament)
 

Last i adhered the two rectangles with the globe in between. I used some tiny cloths pins to hold it together while it dried.


And here are some shots of the finished ornament. The glitter i used coated the globe nicely so it has a nice frosted look, kind of looking out of a frosty window! :
 

 


Now i have one more project it for you! While i was waiting for the ornament above to dry, i made 10 dry tags! I think these will make great little ornaments for a mini tree!!





Thanks so much for stopping by, your next stop is the talented  Steph Ackerman.
