Handmade Ornament

So, I was visiting my Australian friends on a message board called Scrapsidaisy. Jules listed a blog link and some examples for this fantastic ornament! I just had to try it. This took MINUTES to complete. Seriously! It is six 2"x2" pieces of paper. A couple of folds on each piece, some double sided adhesive, and that's it! I added a couple of rhinestones and a ribbon. Totally easy, fun, and very pretty!! I used some gorgeous Cosmo Cricket double-sided paper.



So, here are some links for you! Jules found this project on Melissa Goodsell's blog. It's specifically in her Handmade Christmas - Day Two blog entry. There is a You Tube video showing you exactly how to make these. EASY!! I'm going to make some more with the girls!
Well, the girls have a Jazz Band concert tonight, a Festival of Lights parade tomorrow (COLD!!), and we're having lunch with family on Sunday. My mother-in-law is coming into town from Arizona, and she'll be here until Thanksgiving. She's going to FREEZE!! It will be great to see her. So, it's a busy weekend for us. I hope you all have a great Friday and a fantastic weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!

Yours turned out fantastic Carol. They are so simple yet so effective.
Be sure to try them in 4"x4" squares. They turn out FAB too.
Have a great weekend.
