Trim the Tree Challenge

I have had so much fun playing along with the PTI girls these past couple of months. Today's project is my last post as Guest Designer. I'm so grateful to PTI for giving me the chance to work with them. It's been a wonderful experience.

I'm really excited to be playing along with this challenge. We had to create a Christmas ornament. I decided to use a cookie cutter as my base.




There are so many fun ones out there. First, I stamped a medallion with Giga Guidelines using Spring Moss ink. I stamped the dots from Communique Curves in Ripe Avocado and then stamped Merry twice in Rasberry Fizz. I add stickles to the dots. I attached this to the cutter. Then, I wrapped it in in Rasperry Fizz ribbon. I stamped Background Basics Diamonds several times using Spring Moss. Then I cut 1/4 inch strips of the paper and adhered it over the ribbon using Scor - Tape. Finally, I added two buttons and lots of stickles.



I made the matching little tag to go with it. Haven't decided who will get it yet, but I think I'll wrap it in clear cellophane and attach the tag at the top. I used the same stamp sets on the tag.

Be sure to check out the other ladies' blogs to see some really cute projects!
