Crafty girl ideas - Christmas edition

Boy - have I been MIA on this here old blog of mine - no good reasons other then life and the holidays.

Today I wanted to share the cutest set of ornaments ever to come to life. 

I used one clear plastic ornament that has to be snapped together - which are ideal for placing Items inside the ornament and easy to customize. 

I started off with tracing the ornament onto a piece of card board - that’s what they are both Based on...

Covered the base with scrapbook paper 
Then for this ornament I added some wood veneer trees and a sticker

Inked the edges of course placed snow in the center of the ornament then hot glued the clear dome over that. 

Added a doily to the back of the ornament and a another circle of scrapbook paper just to make it more festive. 

This second one started with a set of stamps and dies by Prima marketing - this is literally a piece together ornament - it took a little longer then I had planned or wanted to spend but it came out super cute. 

Started with the same card board base and scrapbook paper 
Then stamped and die cut some of the pieces 

Rolling snow covered hills - stamped and die cut 

Stamped and die cut the houses which are so small but so cute & actually they are the perfect size for this project. 

Finishing touches are some sparkly snow and some other stamped and die cut pieces and of course the Pom Pom fringe to hide the pop sides placement of the dome!  Cute tho’ wouldn’t you agree? 

Tag me if you try this or share some of the ones you’ve made

Happy Christmas crafting friends
