Ornaments!

So when I first saw JoAnna’s tutorial on the Pumpkin Place Settings, I thought ooooh! I can make these into ornaments! I think Stefanie over at Scrapped Silly! first made the little pumpkins. Anyway – they inspired me and here’s what I came up with! And I’m even going to show you my trial and error stuff too!

So first I grabbed my Giga Scalloped Oval punch and a sheet of Fruitcake paper from BasicGrey. I punched out 5 ovals and went to work. Then I realized my mistake….you need to have an even number of ovals if you are going to have your pattern work out correctly….and it just didn’t seem ‘full’ enough….

supplies: giga scalloped oval punch by marvy; fruitcake paper by basicgrey; mono multi, scotch tape (for the ribbon); grosgrain ribbon bobbin from Joann’s; and 5 punched ovals.

So then I tried it again with 6 ovals this time…it was better, but still just not quite right….

Then I had an epiphany – it’s not a pumpkin! It doesn’t look quite right because it shouldn’t be oval! So I tried again with the giga scalloped circle punch…

What? You are an SU! demo and you wanted to demo this cute little ornament?? (sorry, I only had last year’s SU christmas paper….)

And here they all are together (aside from the first one that looked funny) for a size comparison…..

Aren’t they cute?? Thank you Stefanie and JoAnna for the inspiration! I have another idea for these little cuties too….maybe I can get that done tomorrow!

    You’re a genius! So did you slit these and fit it together that way? How did you attach the ribbon on the top. That part I’m having trouble with. And it’d be cute with a bead on the top and the bottom too. I’d love a tutorial- I have to do a class at our small town local library (I’m not paid, and I dont sell any products, strictly volunteer). Anyway this looks like a quick and easy project for that. you can pm me at SCS if you will give me permission, and maybe a quick note on how you did the ribbon if you have time.

    Thanks for the “full” tutorial Emily, including the mistakes- you knew that some of us would do the same things, didn’t you?!

    LOVE these. What a wonderful craft for my kids and I to do together. Also a fun little gift the kids can give their classmates for Christmas 🙂
