Christmas Projects

Here are my week before Christmas crafting projects:
I have seen many Glitter Ornaments online the past few years, but this is the first year I've had time to make them! The ornament are so messy to colour with reinkers but the mess is so worth it! I made 24 for my tree and then another 6 after my mom saw them! Supplies: 25 drops or so of Stampin' Up! Classic Reinker in a colour of your choice, clear ornament, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

The tree pattern is my own, I just drew what I thought would look good and cut 2 pieces of the green material. After sewing (don't forget to sew in the grosgrain ribbon so that it can hang on the tree!) and adding the stuffing I hot glued 2 Designer Buttons to the tree. Then using the Fabric Adhesive, my iron, a piece of parchment paper and a strip of Victoria Crochet Trim finished the bottom.

Lastly are some tags. The new First Edition Designer Paper is pleated after being scrunched and it adds so much dimension to the tag.
Supplies for the 2 Tags
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Many Merry Messages, Winter Post
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, First Edition Designer Series Paper (from Occasions
Mini Catalogue)
Accessories: Sticky Strip, Big Shot, Two Tags Die
