Christmas Crafts: Simple Ornament

Elegant Handmade Paper Christmas Ornament

I just love this clean and simple ornament. I received it last Christmas from my friend Maria, and after a stint on the tree, it has adorned my craft room door ever since!

The Big Shot makes this an easy project to create. The Whisper White base is die-cut using the Scallop Circle Bigz Die. Next, two circles are cut (at the same time!) from Whisper White using the Circle Clear Die, then one circle is embossed using the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. These are glued together and adhered to the Scallop Circle.

Holiday Craft Ideas - Easy Paper Ornament

Letters are cut using the Serif Essentials Alphabet Dies, one each in Cherry Cobbler and White Glitter Foam, then layered onto the circle. A simple Cherry Cobbler flower is created using the 5-Petal Flower Punch to crop three flower layers; then crumpled, spritzed with water and allowed to dry. The layers are then smoothed out, glued together and attached to the project using Stampin' Dimensionals. Basic Rhinestones finish the project nicely.

Now that it's tree trimming time, this beauty goes back on the tree!
