Hey everyone! Who's ready for the holidays? It's time to get those gifts and cards in
order if you haven't gotten there yet! I'm sharing a two in one project for a little
inspiration today using one of the Clear Scraps Mini Shakers!
ornament included as a gift! The Clear Scraps Mini Bulb Shaker was used to
create an ornament to hang on the tree! The ornament was painted black and
the top of the ornament brushed with silver metallic wax paste.
I traced the back of the ornament on some pretty paper and put it all together using
the Clear Scraps Holiday Sequins (I did pick some of the green out). I punched a hole
using the larger tabletop crop o dile and some elbow grease, but you could punch each
layer as you go too. A bit of twine, a touch of ribbon and a few stickers finished it off.
To create the card, I cut a piece of white cardstock to a length of 9&1/2" by 5&1/2".
The 9&1/2" length is scored at 4&1/4", 4&1/2", 8&3/4" and finally 9". This will give
the card a slight (1/4") gusset or box fold so it has the room to hold the ornament. I
punched a decorative edge along the one side, but you could leave it plain, add ribbon
etc. On the front of the card, I wanted to add a clear acrylic window to show off that
pretty ornament! So I made a 3&1/4 by 4&1/2" window in the white cardstock.
Super easy to do using my trimmer.
Here I had glued the acrylic "window" in place after the "icicles" (some nuvo glitter glue)
had dried. It's glued to the back of the frame, and then I cut a piece of paper to cover
the frame both front and back. You can find acrylic sheets in the Clear Scraps store HERE.
The inside of the card was covered with a buffalo plaid patterned paper, then the card
was tied shut using some twine with a jingle bell accent added as a final touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope you enjoyed this little gift idea! Make sure to stop back soon for more inspiration!
