Hey everyone! I hope you had a great 4th of July yesterday. Ours was pretty low key, but I enjoyed the day off. I wanted to share the Christmas ornament I made for our Team Swap. This Saturday is my Christmas in July event and my team meeting always follows it. This month’s theme was Christmas. I know, kind of a no brainer right? 😉 I wanted to create something other then a card and remembered we made these type of ornaments a few years ago and had fun making them.
To create this you need a Mason jar ring and lid. I glued the lid inside out using some Gorilla Glue. Next I punched out a 2 1/2″ circle of our Silver Foil. That punch retired a few years ago and just couldn’t part with it. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the foil to the back side of the lid.
Next I punched out a 2 1/2″ circle of Real Red cardstock and a 2 1/4″ circle of the Under the Mistletoe DSP, which is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion. I adhered those two together, then to the inside of the lid with Mini Glue Dots. Next I stamped the gingerbread man in Soft Suede and punched him out with the Gingerbread Builder Punch. Next I stamped the bow in Real Red ink on Real Red cardstock punched it out and added it with a Mini Dimensional. I added a couple of dimensionals to the back of the gingerbread man and adhered him onto the DSP. I pulled out a scrap strip of Whisper White and stamped the sentiment, flagged the ends and adhered it to the gingerbread man’s hands. I think it looks like he’s holding up a sign.
To create the ribbon hanger I cut a piece of the Pear Pizzazz Shimmer ribbon and adhered it to the outside of the lid with some Tear & Tape and tied it in a knot at the top. I took a piece of the Real Red 1/8″ ribbon and tied it in a bow at the bottom to create a tighter loop. I LOVE how it turned out!! What do you think? It’s a great way to use up all those old lids!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for another Fabulous Friday!
