Sassy Ornament

Hello wonderful sassy fans!! How are you this Monday? Well, I hope! We had a beautiful weekend here(minus the earthquake that scared the bejeebers out of me) and I hope yours was well too. I was thinking about what to make for today's post and I recently made a cute, simple , yet effective ornament that my kids will give as teachers gifts and I really wanted to make more...I actually had a lot of fun doing it. So, here it is...

and if you want to make your own like this you will need:

1 Sassy image(I used Puppy Love)
Spellbinders Nestabilities:
Large Circles-largest one
Lacey Circles-largest one
lightweight cardboard(I recycled a waffle box)

First you will need to cut and color or vice versa your stamped image with the large circle die. Second cut out one each of two different colors(or different shades of same color) and one cardboard piece with the large lacey die.

Choose which of the two colors will be the back color on your ornament and attach it to the cardboard piece...if your recycling like I did make sure the designed side is the one getting the tape as the other will be seen. Now place the remaining lacey piece  evenly on top of that piece then turn until the colors are every other like this...

Now you can hold one side and tape the other then switch Next, center your image on top of your collective lacey pieces and tape down. Flip it over and apply a looped hanging string of sorts(ribbon or whatever) to the back. Next, again using the large circle die cut a circle out of your cardboard and place it centered on the back to hid the ribbon that doesn't need to be seen. If you used something a little thicker and have a pretty rounded trim and some pop up dots you can put the trim around the edge of the circle and the dots somewhere central before putting it on the back, like this...

Well, that's all for me today, hope you've enjoyed my mini tutorial. Make sure to stop by later and see what Alina has to show you. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!

  7. I like your interwoven lacey edging & the way it picks up the shape of those flowers. It's a lovely idea for a little gift too - not too much but enough & very personal.
