Favorite Ornaments

IMGP1054Each Friday, Scrap It Girl asks everyone to post their favorites.

Today, she asked us to post our favorite ornament to make. For me, this was easy … I love to make ornaments and I love to make ones with a little dome on them by Globecraft & Piccolo. They are so versatile and so much fun to make.

This time, I opted to make one featuring products from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I started by tracing the outer edge of the frame onto a piece of paper. Then I cut well inside of the line to create the back of the ornament.

I placed it on top of the center ring, which I had already painted white.

Next, I cut out pieces of the candle from Velvet paper and Shimmer Sheetz. I lightly inked the candle and wax.

067I added a couple of sprigs cut out of cardstock and Glitter Dots.

IMGP1050I inked the top ring and then embossed it with an embossing folder. I then took ink and ran it over the top of the ring to highlight the embossing.

IMGP1051I put the dome on and added Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive around it. Then I put on the ring and used clothespins to hold it in place white drying.

I finished it off with a jingle bell and a couple of pre-made ribbons.

What do you think?
