Bloggers challenge ~ Ornaments

TGIF!

It just so happens I started decorating my tree last night. I really love the look of a hand made ornament. one of my favorite things, is the ornaments you can make with the ornament sizzix die.

Every time you swipe through, you cut 4 circles, each have 3 score marks. Glue them back to back for a stunning creation. You can make them any size or shape you like.

Also ~ there's a photo below of an ornament I got from Robin Merriman at one of the stampin up events from days past. She made this with some designer paper, a rubon, some punches and ink. Isn't that spectacular?

And this year I've decided that the star on the top is going to be paper. I think it looks fantastic, although I may add some glitter. Check out and see what my girlfriends are doing for hand made ornaments. They'll be sure to wow you!

I love all of your ideas- very pretty projects- I may cut some paper and have ornaments as a project for the little nieces and nephews at our family Christmas celebration!

I love handmade ornaments too. In fact, they bring the most smiles when people look at my tree. These are all adorable. I think the star would look magnificent with glitter!!
