I am in an ornament swap with two other ladies. We are to make each other a Christmas ornament to exchange on Dec. first. I am just playing around with a few ideas to see what I can come up with. This little one is made from a ribbon spool. I colored the image with pencils then cut him out with a nesties along with the matching scalloped nestie. ( cut a second set out for the back also but no image.......just a place to sign the ornament.) I then used the circle nestie to cut out the center of the red one and inserted a "Shake it" shaker box pouch. I painted red stickles on the scalloped edges and then used green stickles to decorate. Of course there is Icicle stickles on the image too......just gotta love that bling! I added the green bead string around the center edge to accent that some. I used a leaf punch and a snowflake punch topped with a prima rose. Added a bit more stickles to them and a few plastic snowflakes on top and called it done. This one is just my proto type but if I choose to use it for the swap, the two I make the ladies will have Dianmond Dust inside so it will be a shaker box. I would like some honest comments on this as I do not want to give the ladies something that looks too cheap. Thanks for any critique you can offer.
Challenges I am entering hoping for good honest criticism:
Incy Wincy-anything goes
Crafty Purple Frog- anything goes
A Spoon Full of Sugar- relish to embellish
Fussy and Fancy-winter
Wee Memories- free for all
Pollycraft-its chill time
Thank you for stopping by and thank you even more if you left me a comment! God Bless You!
