Pretties Kit Ornaments

Since last week was my final week babysitting a little girl for some friends, I wanted to make it special. Her family is moving to North Dakota just a few days before Christmas, so understandably they have not put up many decorations in their current home. I thought that together we could come up with something simple to do (easy enough for a 3 year old anyway!).

We got busy with her stamping Christmas images in Old Olive and Real Red onto Kraft and Whisper White 1 3/4" circles. Then we simply folded them in half and adhered them to one another accordion-style. When fully opened they resembled a sphere or ball. All that was left to do was take a hat pin from Stampin' Up!'s Pretties Kit, some beads, and some silver cording and voila! we had an ornament. She took her ornaments home before I could snap a picture of them but after she left, I got busy creating a few of my own. I used Snowfall Printed Window sheets, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP, and Merry Moments DSP. These were so easy, and I love the way they look.

Have you booked your January or February workshop yet? If you haven't already heard, Sale-a-bration is coming up in January and it is SU!'s biggest event of the year. Also being released in January is the Occasions Mini which is chock full of new product. I am talking new punches (and new punch design!) some amazing new embellishments and designer series paper (one new product is a huge 48 sheet stack!!), tools, and CLEAR STAMPS!!! Yes, that is right. Stampin' Up! has come out with clear stamps. They are made of the same rubber as before so you can be sure that the quality is there. I can't wait to show all of these exciting new products and the best way to see for yourself is to host your own workshop!!!
