12 Days of Christmas - Day 9

Easy Ornament
I know... your kids are out of school and they wake up and ask, "Mom, what are we doing today?" If you and your kids are crafters, or into scrapbooking, here's an easy and elegant ornament you and they can make. If you're a scrapbook supply "collector" like me, you probably have the supplies on hand to make this. It's a great ornament to mass produce too.

Here's what you'll need:
Acrylic shapes (chipboard would work ok too)
Stickles (the Platinum color looks fabulous!)

Don't worry if you don't have acrylic in a Christmas shape. Your LSS may sell 12" by 12" acrylic sheets that are easily cutable. Apply one or many colors of Stickles glitter glue and let it dry. (A heat gun or hairdryer can speed this process if you're in a hurry.) Punch a hole in the ornament with your crop-a-dile or other heavy-duty punch. String a ribbon through for hanging. Ta....Da!
These make pretty tie-ons for gifts too. And how pretty would these be on a Valentine? Always thinking ahead.... Have fun!
