Christmas Fun

WREATH

I love the fact that all of the Stampin’ Up! catalogs have such great samples.  I don’t have to think up a thing!  I copied this wreath from the Holiday Mini Catalog (pg 24).  Of course I changed it a little and made it my own.

I had some wire left from a previous project and made a 6” circle to tie the ribbon too.  I tied on ribbon until I felt it was full enough and then added buttons using mini glue dots.  This is a real simple wreath but it takes a lot of ribbon!

Supplies:

  • 3/4” Polka-Dot grosgrain ribbon (115608)
  • Designer Buttons – Playground (116313)
  • Mini Glue Dots (103683)

ORNAMENTS

My wonderful friend and upline Mandy Grant told me how to make these really cute ornaments.  These were so easy even my 7 year old daughter made one!  Using your Stampin’ Up! reinkers put about 40-50 drops of ink (depending on the size of the ornament) in each ornament.  You can pick up clear glass ornaments at craft and discount stores.  Role ornament until the entire inside is covered with ink and then put about 1-2 teaspoons of  Stampin’ Glitter.  Replace cap and shake ornament until glitter covers the inside of the ornament.  Let dry and your done!

SUPPLIES:

  • Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink reinkers
  • Stampin’ Glitter – Chunky or Fine* depending on the look you want

*The “Fine” glitter is a little fussy to work with but definitely worth it!  The ornaments pictured above were made with the Fine Cosmos glitter (108796)

Occasions Mini Catalog & Sale-a-bration Catalog coming soon!  I’ve received my copy already and I can’t tell you how awesome they are.  There are so many new things coming that I’ve lost count.  I’ll be posting a sneak peek of what’s coming up over the next couple of weeks.
