12 Days of Ornaments-Live with Prima


Hey Friends!
Today, I am sharing a couple of ornaments I created using Prima's North Country collection, felt flowers, bling and more!

This first ornament was created using my Tim Holtz Sizzix Ornamental die with chipboard and papers. The edge of the ornament is embossed with gold powder and Distress Embossing ink...
Run the pad along the edges, sprinkle with powder and heat set.

I added a mix of little flowers with punched snowflakes, gems and leaves.
Then I topped it off with a satin ribbon and a sweet photo of the boys to make it personal.
The flowers are not intended for Christmas, but if you put the right colors and textures together-you can make anything look special for the holidays.


Next up-my Stag Ornament...
I cut out the image from the 8x8 North Country paper pad, inked the edges and glued it to the front of a glass ornament I found at Michaels. Using my scalloped 2 1/2 in punch, I punched out the background from the "Birch Tree" paper in the pad and glued it to the back. Then I filled it with "snow", added flowers, leaves and bling to the top with a shiny ribbon...and it's done!
My mom took this ornament from my table when she saw it. Apparently-it will look better on her tree...LOL!




Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this post inspired you to create some of your own ornaments this season!
