Red Glitter Ornament

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful crafty weekend! This month’s challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you for MLCCB #14 – September Anything Christmas Goes! I created a beautiful red glitter ornament which I plan to gift because with eight cats, we won’t be putting up a tree again this year, lol! We love our fur babies, but boy-oh-boy they sure can wreak havoc on a Christmas tree! Bwahahaha!

Ornaments are really easy to create with intricate dies, as long as the design is the same on both sides. I cut four die cuts of this pretty round ornament from red glitter paper.

I folded each of them down the middle and adhered the right side of one to the left side of the next until all four were adhered. Just prior to adhering the third one to the fourth one, I sandwiched a loop of metallic string between the layers. I added a few clear rhinestones for a little extra added bling.
