Christmas Ornament - Day 1

Hello friends!  I have a super easy tutorial for a beautiful ornament idea.  My ornament features the gorgeous poinsettia from Jamie's 3D Poinsettia Wreath.  This is day one of my 5 days of ornaments series that I'll be doing here on my blog.  I hope you come back everyday!

I wish I knew how to remove the glare so you can see just how pretty this is without my reflection in the photo!

Here's a quick tutorial - just click on the picture for a larger view.  But I started with a photograph ornament that I picked up at Michaels (with a 50% off coupon).  This is great, too, because you can make two from one ornament.  Then you cut out pieces for the flower.  I inked up the edges with various Distress Inks colors and then use my shaper tools to shape the petals and leaves.  Using my WRMK Heatwave tool, I added some gold foil doodles.  I wasn't looking for anything more than just adding touches of gold.  Then I built the flower.  I cut a circle of white card stock that was 3 1/4" which is a hair bigger than the ornament.  I used Glossy Accents to adhere the ornament to the backing and then weighted it down with some acrylic blocks.  After it was dry, I added ribbon around it and a bow.  Easy!

I hope this inspires you to create fun ornaments for your tree or to give as a gift.  Thank you for stopping by.  I'll  be back again tomorrow with another pretty ornament to share!

This is so gorgeous, I did something like this years ago, but not so beautiful. Love how you have got the glitter in there
