#248 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 10/ Easy! Christmas Ornament
Hi everyone welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog HopDAY 10 hosted by Sylvia Bella Scrapbook Designs. If you are here from Sylvia's blog then you are in the right spot! This hop is all about making 12 different Christmas gifts 12 days in a row and the last day we will be posting is on December 6th.
I apologize for not posting the last 2 days, I have been very ill and pretty much in bed all day long :( Luckily I am finally feeling much better and I will be posting Day 11's project later this evening thank you!
For today's gift I made something super fast that I think came out great! I made a Christmas ornament using the Serenade Solutions Cricut cartridge, the size is about 3x 4.5 inches, I cut it out on 3 layers of cereal box chipboard, and also for a 4th time I cut it out on gray cardstock. I placed the gray cardstock piece of the bird upside down in my Xyron sticker machine and poured Martha Stewart Christmas glitter all over it. I punched a small hole using my Crop a dile and tied a circle of embroidery floss through it to hang on the tree.
As soon as I was finished my son said he wanted to put it on our "Big" tree lol! No kidding it's 7 1/2 feet tall, and guess what I almost broke our tree while decorating it (don't ask LOL!) luckily my hubby was able to fix it, but I had to re-decorate the entire tree all over again because of the way he fixed the tree all the "good" ornaments were facing the back. So it's like I decorate to huge tree's this year lol! Can you spot where I place my new ornament below??
