Hi! Today I am sharing an ornament I made using a tag and a snowflake from My Scrap Chick.
I used my ornaments on our Christmas tree, but you could use them for package decorations or in your windows.
Here are the images I used.
Dark red cardstock (Recollections)
Glossy white cardstock ( Stampin Up)
Silver pearlescent cardstock (Recollections)
Foam tape and dots
Zig fine tip glue pen and liquid glue
Each ornament is five inches tall with a 2 3/4 inch snowflake in the middle. Each ornament is assembled on a 2 inch pentagon. For each ornament you will need five tags, a total of ten white decorative layers and one snowflake, along with the pentagon.
Fold the ornaments in half and add a white filigree layer to the outside and inside of each ornament. I used the fine tipped Zig glue pen for this.
Glue the ornaments to each side of the pentagon with about 3/8 inch overlapping as shown.
Assemble and attach the snowflake to the center using foam tape. Add a red gem to the center of the snowflake.
Separate the layers to give the ornament dimension. Use small foam dots up near the fold if need be. Use a foam dot between the layers at the tip to hold that section closed. Run a hanging ribbon through.
I love how these ornaments turned out! Why not give them a try.
Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think.
Happy holiday crafting!
