Joy Ornament – TE CHA announcement!

joy ornament

I have a fun ornament I made using the clear favor circles from Taylored Expressions.  I’m here to show you that you can use them for more than just inserting candy.  I got 10 for $5, so I can make more!  I used my Wings of Joy set to display inside the clear ornament.

What I did first was cut all around the  plastic until I had a shape IMG_6917to resemble an ornament.  Then, I cut my image with a circle nestability and it fit perfectly inside.  Then, colored it in and was ready to assemble it! 



Then, I put another circle of pattern paper from Jolly by Golly so it was decorative on the back and I signed it.  I didn’t have to use any tape because the circles fit snuggly once the 2 halves were joined.  But before I did that, I added some clear microbeads so it became a shaker ornament!   Lastly, I taped the outside edges with sticky tape and covered it with decorative ribbon around and put a loop with silver cord and tied a bow on it.  Another gift down---

Exciting news from TE!  Taylor and members of the Baker’s Dozen Design Team are heading to CHA in January (yours truly as well!) We are so excited to meet one another as well as other stampers who we may or may not chat with on a regular basis but may know of!   If you’re not aware of what CHA is, it’s the Craft and Hobby Association supershow they have twice a year and it’s open to the general public to attend – that’s YOU!  Mark your calendars for Jan 22 –23 for a grand ole time in Anaheim, CA!  You will have a chance to shop the retailer’s booths, learn new techniques and do lots of make & takes!  How fun!!  The show is 12-8 pm on Friday and 10:00-6:00 on Saturday.

WAY too cute, Donna!
I am a little partial with anything that has the word "JOY" on it! (it is my youngest's name)
Beautifully done!

This is a wonderful idea! I like that you've found a way to use these for more than just candy. Super job!

Donna - I wish I could trust myself to cut as well as you - I'd probably end up with one useable ornament out of the possible 5-10 if I tried cutting skills are next to 0. Maybe next year they will come out with an ornament shape. Great idea...

Donna this is too cute! What a fabulous gift and it is beautiful! The image/sentiment is perfect and is also the perfect fit for the ornament. Love the shaker beads and ribbon edge! Great job and thanks for the instructions!
