Y’all are going to be sick of these ornaments! I had an idea on how you could make them really kid friendly if you were so inclined. I know that a lot of kid crafts for the tree tend to be either large or um…..not so cute?? I mean, I know – my kid made, I love it! But seriously, you know what I mean. So I thought if I punched every other circle white and let them decorate it, it would be a cute gift for grandparents or something – but still a cute ornament for their tree! If you are a grandparent to my children – don’t look!
Oh – and I intended for them to use a nice solid, like red or green….but the boys went right for the Christmas patterned papers!
And here is how theirs turned out – the little one is because they just had to make a ‘baby’ ornament…
Cute, huh? Then I thought hey – bet if I used the square punch I could do a cool diamond shaped ornament…..I’m not wild about it, but you can do it!
supplies: giga scalloped square punch (8 punches); SU patterned paper; organdy ribbon; tape and mono multi.
And now for the Color Challenge – you can find more info on CC140 <here>. The colors are Purely Pomegranate, Kraft and white. I used the combo to make up the monogram gift set we are doing at a Christmas Gifts class December 1st. I am not sure this will be the exact combo we will do as I am not completely satisfied with it. But here’s my CC140 sample:
supplies: SU sets Baroque Motifs and Letterpress Alpha; perfect plumeria Versamagic Dew Drop Ink; wide organdy ribbon; purely pomegranate, kraft and white cardstock; and giga scalloped rectangle punch.
So far – no mice in the traps. This is good and bad….cause they are still out there, but I haven’t had to see another one yet!
