Again, I could not decide on my project for the challenge at Eclectic Ellapu so I made two projects. Yesterday I posted the Christmas Cracker treat holder. Today I have the snowflake ornament. Or, at least it was supposed to look like a snowflake. Not sure I accomplished that. However, I am happy with the way the "ornament" turned out. Take a peek:
I used the new ornament die-cut set and some Christmas DSP from Stampin' Up to make this project along with some tulle and ribbon from the fabric store. I also used a Christmas embellishment from K & Company for the center. I didn't care much for the starburst in the middle of the embellishment so I added a snowflake bead. I then sprayed with Champagne Mist. I'm not sure if there are any "official" instructions out there to make this ornament but, I did get some from my demonstrator. So, I fumbled through it and learned a few things along the way. I have now made 3 of these ornaments in different colors/prints, etc. and have plans to make a few more.
The ornament I made in class is below. I actually made it at home after the class and added several of my own elements to fluff it up a bit.
I'm not sure I like the lace in the back now that I'm looking at it but I know the person that receives this will. I added glitter glue on the blue & the white ornament pieces, a doily behind the snowflake (which I turned glitter side out), a paper flower to the center, glitter paper behind the button and some glittery string through the button. Of course I had to spray with my favoritest Champagne Mist spray form Stampin' Up too. Big thanks to Suzie Wood for the class and the instructions! I have one more that I'm still fiddling with that I will most likely post later this week.
Well, I hope you will play along with our challenge at Eclectic Ellapu. We would love to have you join us.
Have a great week!
