A Christmas Past Ornament

Today’s SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ and Graphic 45® Blog Hop item is an ornament I made using the 8 x 8″ pack of Christmas Past paper and images.

The ornament starts with five die cut shapes.

Ink the edges, score each down the center vertically.  Then apply adhesive to one half of the back side.  I used Crafty Power Tape down the score line, and then a few Click ‘n Stick™ Mounting Squares around the edges.

The simply match up the shapes and adhere back to back to make a dimensional ornament.  I added a piece of bakers twine to use as a hanger.  I dangled a plastic bead at the bottom of the ornament and added three of the same shaped images back to back below the main ornament.

I added a cone bead to the top, and then tied a bow to it.  I will loop the top of the twine so I can hang it from the tree at Christmas time.

I took the ornament one step further, buy die cutting another set of images in a smaller size, then adhering them inside the folds, giving the ornament an additional layer.

The possibilities are endless for this type of ornament, any shape, pattern or image will work, and you can embellish with any beads or bows or baubles.
