I like to make handmade Christmas gifts for work colleagues and was motivated by the challenges over at CAS-ual Fridays CFC186 Anything But a Card and Scor-Pal #43 More than one score gift packaging. Now I know the Scor-Pal challenge is for gift packaging but I could always use my creation as a gift topper!
To make my ornament, I stamped the large ornament 20 times as you need 4 to make each bauble shape. I then did the same with the small ornament. I had to die cute each ornament – which was running them through my BigShot 40 times!
I make each bauble shape you score down the center of 3 of them, saving 1 to be the base and then you glue them together. I did this 10 times and then made the center piece by scoring a rectangle strip and joining it to make a pinwheel shape.
I cut a large circle to use as the base to hold all the bauble shapes and glued them on using my hot glue gun. I added the satin ribbon to hang the ornament and filled in the gaps with bits of tulle.
It’s quite time-consuming but you sort of get on a roll with doing each part on its own and I think the final outcome is certainly worth it.
