Good Morning everyone! Angela here. It’s that time of year when in and around everything else I usually realize that I need a quick gift for a teacher or a last-minute hostess gift. Hopefully today’s project will help you out if you find yourself in the same situation. With a craft store clear ornament and some sparkly snow, as well as Susan’s dies, I created an ornament that would look lovely on any tree. I used Nuvo Diamond Sheen Confetti inside the globe, but any snow-like material will do just fine.
Here’s how it was made:
1- Die cut 4 of the Berry Spray from brown cardstock. Glue together 2 pairs to create slightly thicker branches. Use Nuvo Crystal Drops to create the berries. Set aside to dry.
2- Die cut three pairs of branches from green cardstock using the White Pine Pinecone and Bough die set. Edge with a darker Copic marker. Shape with leaf tool on the leaf mat.
3- Remove cap from ornament and partially fill with a couple of teaspoons of snow. Replace cap.
4- Once the Berry Sprays are completely dry, glue to front of ornament with glue formulated for holding porous surfaces (paper) to non-porous surfaces (glass or plastic), for example: Beacon GemTac.
5- Add the green branches. Let dry.
6- Die cut 3 large pieces of the Small Poinsettia and 2 each of the smaller leaves from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour 2 of the large pieces green and the rest in a pale pink with Copic markers. Use Yellow Green PanPastel to highlight stem line. Shape on leaf pad and molding pad.
7- Assemble directly onto the ornament. Cut apart the second green piece and glue on separately to fill in the leaves. Use Beacon Kids Choice Glue.
8- Fill in the middle with green Prills.
9- Add a pretty red ribbon and you’re all done!
Wishing you all the very best of this Festive Season.
