HOLIDAY ORNAMENT FROM HOLIDAY CATALOG

I FINALLY HAD SOME TIME TO MAKE THAT BEAUTIFUL ORNAMENT ON THE FRONT COVER OF THE HOLIDAY CATALOG THIS YEAR.




HERE IT IS. . . I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.  I DID, OF COURSE, MAKE SOME CHANGES TO MAKE IT MY OWN.  FIRST, I USED DESIGNER SPECIALTY PAPER.  THE RED AND WHITE IS GLITTERY AND HAS TEXTURE TO IT.  I USED SOME SPECIAL DECO GARLAND THAT IS RETIRED FROM SU INSTEAD OF THE TULLE.  WHY YOU ASK?  BECAUSE I PUT MY CHERRY COBBLER TULLE IN A VERY SPECIAL PLACE AND CAN NOT FIND IT!!  AKK, I HATE WHEN I DO THAT.  HAVEN'T EVEN OPENED IT YET AND IT IS MISSING.,   GRRRR

I ALSO USED TWO BUTTONS AND A RHINESTONE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ORNAMENT.

HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS LEADING UP TO THE FINISHED ORNAMENT:
 I FOLDED UP MY DESIGNER SPECIALTY PAPER INTO THREE LAYERS AND MY FRAMELITS CUT THROUGH PERFECTLY.  I L.O.V.E. MY BIGSHOT!!  BEST THING I EVER BOUGHT MYSELF.
 HERE IS THE BOTTOM GREEN AND CHERRY STRIPED LAYER IN THE BIG SHOT

 THESE FRAMELITS ARE THE BEST.  LOOK HOW MANY COME IN THE PACKAGE!!  JUST ABOUT ANY SHAPE OR SIZE YOU WOULD EVER NEED!!  YOU MUST CONSIDER GETTING THESE!! (GIVE A HINT TO YOUR HUBBY, CHILD OR FRIEND TO CONTACT ME SO YOU CAN GET THESE AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT!!)

 HERE IS THE FIRST LAYER MADE WITH EACH ORNAMENT HAVING 4 LAYERS FOLDED AND GLUED TOGETHER, THEN HOT GLUED TOGETHER IN THE MIDDLE.  (I USED TOMBOW TO GLUE EACH ORNAMENT TOGETHER WITH THE FOLDED DIE CUTS.)

A CLOSER VIEW OF EACH OF THE 5 SECTIONS OF THE BOTTOM OF THE ORNAMENT.
 CLOSEUP OF BOTH LAYERS SO YOU CAN SEE THE TOP BULB SHAPED ORNAMENTS MADE FROM THE GLIMMER STRIPED PAPER.  YOU CAN ALSO SEE THE SPECIALTY GARLAND RIBBON FROM THE RETIRED RIBBON.

I USED MY CROP-A-DILE TO PUNCH A HOLE IN THE TOP AND USED LINEN STRING FOR THE HOOK TO ATTACH TO.  THE BUTTON COLORS ARE GREEN AND DEEP RED.  IT SHOWS UP BLACK BECAUSE OF THE LIGHTING.  SORRY.


THERE YOU HAVE IT.  I AM HAVING A CLASS THIS WEEK SO WE CAN MAKE SOME OF THESE.  TODAY THIS ONE IS GOING TO AN 82 YR OLD FRIEND FOR HER TREE.

HERE'S TO INKY FINGERS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS, Y'ALL.

WON'T YOU LEAVE ME A COMMENT?  I ENJOY HEARING FROM YOU AND KNOWING THAT YOU ARE CHECKING MY BLOG KEEPS ME GOING.  THANK YOU.

CUTE GIFT IDEA AND THANK YOU GIFT

TERRI WALKER, OUT IN "BLOGGIE LAND", POSTED THE IDEA OF PUTTING A NAIL FILE INTO OUR VERY TALL AND THIN CELLO BAGS.  I DECIDED TO USE THIS FOR MY AUGUST THANK YOU GIFTS AND HAD SO MUCH FUN MAKING THESE.


I COULD NOT FIND MY CAMERA AND WANTED TO GET A PHOTO QUICKLY SO I USED MY PHONE.  SORRY IT IS SUCH A BAD PHOTO.  I USED THE PACKING PAPER FROM PACKAGES IN THE MAIL AND CUT OUT THE FLOWER WITH MY BIG SHOT TO CREATE THE PRETTY FLOWER DECORATION AT THE TOP OF THIS LITTLE GOODIE BAG.  LOOK HOW NICELY THE NAIL FILE FITS INTO THE CELLO BAGGIE.  IT IS A SELF SEALING BAGGIE AT THE TOP. " EASY PEASY".

 I USED MY LITTLE LABELS FRAMELITS AND STAMP SET TO MAKE THE THANK YOU LABEL BANNER ON TOP OF THE FLOWER.  I USED A CORDUROY BUTTON IN THE MIDDLE.

A BEAUTIFUL CLOSEUP OF THE FLOWER.  YOU CAN SEE THE THANK YOU BANNER VERY WELL AND SEE THAT I ALSO SPONGED SOME INK ON THE FLOWER EDGES AND ON THE BUTTON.

IF YOU ORDER ANY STAMPIN' UP! PRODUCTS FROM ME IN AUGUST, YOU WILL BE RECEIVING ONE OF THESE SPECIAL GIFTS AS MY THANKS FOR ALLOWING ME TO BE YOUR STAMPIN' UP! DEMONSTRATOR.

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOUR COMMENTS ON THIS CUTE FLOWER-TOPPED NAIL FILE GIFT.
