Christmas Blog Hop, Day Two


Hello and welcome to day two of our Christmas Blog Hop. If you are following the hop you should have arrived here from http://fantabulouslypink.blogspot.com/ . If you missed any of the other blogs, I have them listed below.

Today's project is definitely something different for me but I am so pleased with the results! I found these ornaments in the Oriental Trading Catalog in October and thought they would work great with some Cricut cuts. The back is flat and measures about 2 3/4" by 2" so you are somewhat limited to the images you can use. First, I placed paper on the inside back using Mod Podge. I also applied Mod Podge to the inside edges of the front and sprinkled with Martha Stewart Snow Glitter. The images are from the Christmas Cards cartridge and are cut at 2 1/4". Instead of cutting the individual layers, I cut the main layer, or largest, of each image 3 times and put foam tape between each layer.Then I attached it to the ornament back with foam tape. After it was all put together, I glued a piece of ribbon around the outer edge then added some greenery to the top. Oh, and the paper I used on the snowman's hat and scarf is from some cards from the Michael's dollar bin. Thanks to Envys from goingbuggy.blogspot.com for the idea!

Brads , Oriental Trading and Queen and Co.; Paper, Deja Views Fair Isle Christmas and scraps; Glitter, Martha Stewart Snow glitter and Crystal Fine glitter; Ribbon, Michaels; Flat back pearls, Stampin Up.

And now, here is today's blog candy. Lots of embellishments to help finish up those Christmas projects. I've also included 2 of the plastic ornament. Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.
Thanks so much for joining us in our Christmas Blog Hop. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I did creating for it. Again, here is a list of the other participants.
Happy Holidays,
Maria
