Christmas Ornament

I know! I’m sorry,twice in one day is a lot and I don’t like it either but what can I say.  The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge has just started and I want to share that with you so you wont miss it. This week the Twist is to make a project or a card using punches or die cuts. On my project I used punches, I created an ornament. I will try and walk you thru how I made it but I just took my punches out and this is what I got.  I decided to take a picture of the punches I used, I hope this will help you. I really have to tell you this is so easy to make it is unbelievable.


From the top left to the right, large green one is Marvy Uchida 3 1/2 inch can be scalloped or not (does not matter) punch 1, black one stampin up 1 1/4 scallop punch 1, stampin up ornament punch out 5 them in one color and punch 15 in another color , on the left is a company out of business but I wanted you to see the shape kind of leaf shape punch 5, Marvy Uchida 3/4 punch 1 and Marvy Uchida 1 inch punch 1.

This is what the back looks like. As far as colors you can use what ever color you want.


Punch out 1- 3 1/2 (or any large circle punch), Punch out 5- ornament glue (mine are green)them over the edges of your circle punch.

now punch out 12 ornaments , 3 of them for each section. as you can see there are 5 sections and fold them in half.  Put one face down and glue the two other ones to each half of the flat ornament.  Now take the other sides that are not glued and glue them down in-between  the other 5 ornaments (mine are green) you already glued down. Punch out 5 of the punch that is kind of leaf shape and fold in half ( I cut the ends off that I inserted in the middle).  I have Tim Holtz Rosettes die cut so I made one rosette and used the 3/4 to hold the back and the 1 inch for the front. I found the snowman embellishment but you can add anything. I glued him to the 1 1/4 scalloped circle. The green material I had in my scraps you can use anything netting and folded it over and glued it in between . Add some Christmas ribbon to hang it up with.

This is another one I started to make, I’m not quite finished with it yet but I did it the same way. I hope you are not totally confused now… If you try and make it and have problems let me know and I will help you or just email me and I will get right back to you.


Have to go watch the kids tonight.  Kurt and Jessica have classes to go to but I will be back a lot later. I have great evening.
