Hello, crafty friends! It’s Saturday and I hope you have an awesome weekend planned! A new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #19 – February Anything Christmas Goes! I created some pretty faceted Christmas Ornaments!

Leslie

My inspiration for these faceted ornaments came from The Paper Pixie HERE and HERE. Julie is one talented lady and I love watching her videos! These look complex but you’d be surprised at how easy they are to make!

I grabbed some Stampin’ Up Cherry Cobbler and GKD Fresh Asparagus cardstock, and cut and scored all the bases for five long and three round ornaments.

I pulled out one Echo Park and two PhotoPlay Christmas collection packs, and cut all the squares, rectangles and triangles needed to layer onto the bases, using a variety of prints.

I used either gemstones, gumdrops, Glossy Accents or shimmery gold pen accents on the ornaments. The red/gold and brown/gold ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I’m so happy with how these turned out and I’m sure I will be making more of these later on! The sky is the limit with colors and prints! ;)
