Happy Monday, everyone! Missy here, and this week the Design Team is sharing off-the-page ideas for the holidays. I decided to create some cute ornaments for our Christmas tree using the 2016 November Hip Kits. I punched 3-inch circles from white cardstock and then sorted through the patterned papers and embellishments. I was first drawn to the adorable Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa papers with the little houses, birds and trees on them. You can find those in the Main Kit and Paper Kit. I fussy cut some of them out and created a fun little snowy scene. I fussy cut the bear from the cut apart sheet and that darling snowman from a die cut. The squirrel and birds on the first ornament are from the Hip Kit exclusives. These were really fun to create, and I was even able to work in the Shimmerz products from the Color Kit!
For this cute bear ornament, I sprayed some pink Shimmerz from my stash and then machine stitched with some bright pink thread. I adhered the bear and then added some of the exclusive puffy stickers designed by Kim Watson in the Embellishment Kit. For the snowman ornament, I added some of the Shimmerz Coloringz Well Blue Me Down from the Color Kit this month and a paper strip of trees from one of the CP papers. I added some tangled thread under the snowman and then glued down some of those little white pom pom balls. I also added a few of the exclusive phrase stickers from the Embellishment Kit.
If you remember my first layout using these kits, I cut a bunch of Irit’s trees from her cut file set. I had these left over, so I added them to this ornament with the squirrel. Again, I added some of the Shimmerz and even some splatters from the Vibez Glorious Day from last month’s Color Kit. I stitched around the edges with gold thread and attached the trees and animals. I also added some of the Pinkfresh Studio gold acrylic pieces from the December Documented Kit and an exclusive phrase cut apart. I used an older Hip Kit stencil and the Shimmerz Dazzlerz for the other ornament to resemble snow. I also added some torn vellum to the bottom of these.
These look adorable on our tree! I just punched a hole in the top and added some cord.
Here’s my process video if you’d like to see how these cute little ornaments came together. They were fun to make!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great week!
