DIY Easy Quick Inexpensive Christmas Ornament
November 29, 2016
Want to create a DIY Easy Quick Inexpensive Christmas Ornament? I have the easiest and quickest ornament...and it can also be used as a gift bag tag or on a gift box! You can mass produce these for office workers, teacher's gifts, gifts for your small groups, bunco prizes and the list goes on and on...so here it is
I'm going to give you step by step directions to create this little cutie and then I'll give you the supply list--it is pretty short because you don't need a lot of supplies for this one!
So here goes:
You can purchase Mason Jar lids from supermarkets and super stores like Walmart, Target, etc. Be sure you purchase the lid and the ring--there are 2 parts to the lid (in case you haven't used mason jars before).
1. Cut a piece of Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack using the Layering Circles framelits. I used the one that is approximately 2 3/8" in diameter. Glue dot this to the lid surface.
2. Stamp the gingerbread man (Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set) in Early Espresso Classic Ink on Whisper White cardstock (#100730). Punch out using the Cookie Cutter Builder punch and adhere the cookie to the center of the designer series paper using Stampin' Dimensionals
3. Using your Cookie Cutter builder punch and red glimmer paper--punch out a bow tie and adhere under the chin of your gingerbread man. Now if you would prefer--you can easily have a gingerbread lady by moving the bow to the top of the head and ----a cute little lady!
4, Apply several glue dots around the side rim of the jar lid--if you prefer use a strip of Tear and Tape. Wrap a 24"piece of Kraft rope trim (#141996) around the rim (the glue dots or tape will help hold it in place). Tie a square knot at the top of the rim (left over right, then right over left). Bring both ends of the rope up to form a 2" loop and tie another square knot. This forms the hanging loop.
5. Using an 8"piece of stitched satin 3/8" ribbon, tie a bow and glue dot it to the first square knot at the top of the rim.
Your ornament is completed! The Warmth and Cheer designer series paper has 12 wonderful designs (and each page is double sided)--you can create over 100 ornaments from one pack of designer paper! Check it out!
