SSS December Card Kit: Glittery Ornaments & GIVEAWAY

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share another project featuring the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit.


I recently purchased the Altenew 3D Ornament Dies and couldn't wait to play with them. I thought the beautiful Tonic Glitter Papers would be perfect to use with them.


I die cut the pieces needed and adhered them together, being sure to add my silk ribbon before them were completely together. I used Hero Arts Mini Clothes Pins to help keep them together as they dried. I then added some of Simon's Colorful Confetti to each triangle. I made tags from the Doodlebug Milk and Cookies Papers using one of Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies and decorated them with sentiments from the same papers and images from the Doodlebug Milk and Cookies Shape Sprinkles and Doodlebug's Sugarplums Shape Sprinkles. Finally, I slid the tags over the ribbon and they were ready to hang up. 

While making the ornaments I did add a bell inside the blue one so it will ring when shaken. I thought it would also be fun to make advent ornament to count down to Christmas. While putting the ornaments together, I could add a bible verse or some candy and one ornament would be opened a day from December 1st to the 24th. This paper from the Doodlebug Milk and Cookies Papers could be used to make tags for each day:


Here are some close ups of my ornaments:

Love these ornaments, reminiscent of ones we used to make as a kid, yet so much easier to make with the dies. Thanks for sharing!
