Deck The Halls Blog Hop



Hi Everybody! If you arrived from the talented Donna Mikasa's blog, welcome! Today the Hero Arts design team is showcasing homemade ornaments. I searched google for my inspiration. The original post can be found HERE.  I have a tutorial to show you how I made my scrapbook paper ornament. 


Die cut 15 (3.5inch) circles. You can make the circles any size you want. I wanted a large ornament so that is why I made mine the size that it is.


Fold the circles in half alternating the pattern.





Stack them, alternating the pattern. One green side up, one blue side up. etc etc. 







Staple the circles on the fold line (thanks Melissa), one on the top and one at the bottom. OR you could use wire. I also tied the twine at this time (to hang the ornament). 


Glue (using glue dot) the top of the ornament. Put the glue dot about a third of the way down. 


Next glue the bottom, about a third of the way up. Alternate this around for the entire ornament. 



Attach the tag. I stamped Using Red Royal, Field Green, and Green Hills inks some of my favorite images from the  Spread Joy holiday set. Put rhinestones in the center of the snowflake for a little jaz. These are from Hero Arts too! 


Last attach a wood veneer snowflake and tie string!



Here is the hop order:

  18. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important
    Alpha ZXT thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment's pleasure, for the rest of their lives.http://www.healthsupreviews.com/is-alpha-zxt-scam-or-legit/
