Christmas Ornaments

Wow, we've been busy here at Paper House! Since Gretchen posed the challenge of creating holiday ornaments to us, everyone has been in the crafty spirit! Today we'd like to share this festive trio of ornaments, created for us by our wonderful Pat. As Pat shows us, Paper House mini cut-outs work great as an ornament base, being just the right size and already available in a number of holiday icons!

For the Red Ornament, Pat used stickers from our Christmas Cardstock Sticker (STCX-0048E) and applied them to the front of a Red Ornament Mini Cut-Out (DCM-0276B). We just love how she overlaid the holly stickers on top of each other, lifting the upper one off with a pop dot to give a bit of dimension! Silver, Gold and Xmas Red Stickle's by Ranger and a bit of ribbon complete the look. Pat also used mini cut-outs for gold and blue ornaments in the background. By gluing two cut-outs back to back, twice, and cutting a slit on each to attach them together, she made great three-dimensional ornaments quickly and easily! 

Pat and the rest of us have been steadily filling our tree, so check back soon for more posts to highlight all of the other great ornaments and holiday decorations we're making!
