Creating Christmas Day 4

                                                      Creating Christmas at The Girl Creative
Welcome back to Day 4 of Creating Christmas {Don't just pin it - create it} co-hosting with The Girl Creative. Today I'm going to show you some paper ornaments I created from pins.  
1.  Paper Flower Ornaments from How About Orange (love this blog!)
and my ornaments using the Believe Paper Pack from Close To My Heart
 Really simple to make (one 12x12 paper makes 2 ornaments).  First cut 1 x 6 inch strips.  Stack 12 strips on top of each other and staple once in the center.
 Fold paper in using double stick tape (or tombow) to attach the strip like shown

Once completed hang with ribbon or clear thread on your tree :)
2.  Felt Ornament from Betz White
and my ornament using the Wonderland Paper Pack from Close To My Heart
3.  No pin because these ones are my own
Supplies needed: 
Unfinished Wood Rectangles (I got some at AC Moore and my Hubby cut them down with his table saw)
Pattern Paper
First I stamped the wood directly with the Everlasting Life Stamp Set from Close To My Heart in Cranberry Ink.  
 Then I sponged around the edges of the wood to add some depth and color.
 Then I used a hot glue gun to adhere twine (for hanging on the tree)
 Covered over the glue and twine with some patterned scrapbook paper.
 The finished ornament.  I have to say these are a little rustic but just my style - I love them!
You can check out a few other ornaments I've made on these posts here
