Quck and easy ornament

Ahhh...December! Brrrr....!!! This month Dreamweaver and the Dream Team  are challenging you to design a wintery delight. It can be something other than paper, but again there will have two winners: "Best interpretation of the challenge" and "best usage of Dreamweaver products".

This last month of the year we will award each of these winners a brand new stencil design we are releasing at CHA. (It's a secret until the very end of the month!)

So to get you in the frosty mood, I thought I'd share a Christmas ornament I made using the LL399 Antler Snowflake, Regular embossing paste and glitter!

This was so quick and easy. Just paste the snowflake on a piece of transparency and sprinkle with glitter while its still wet. Once try, using a circle cutter or die, cut the snowflake to the same radius as the inside of the ornament. Roll the ornament up over a chopstick, slide inside and remove the chopstick. As it unrolls, use the chopstick to anchor it to the sides of the ornament. I added some faux snow inside and voila! all done and ready for hanging on the tree! (Only problem is that when I took the picture, I failed to realize that one of the prongs was still outside the ornament--oops!)

Please check out the other Dream Team for other blogs and then get busy working on your own creation. December is a crazy month for most of us, so don't delay or you'll miss out on winning a brand new, not even yet released stencil!
And remember, if you don't have a local stamp store to purchase your Dreamweaver product, you can always get all that you need over at Stencil with Style.

This is so cool! I had forgotten about putting the image inside the ornament.
