Simple and Pretty Ornaments

I love being on Cassandra's design team. She made up the most beautiful holiday collage sheets with my favorite British robins. Talk about simple to make. She did all of the work for me. All I did was print up these beautiful images and then the girls helped to make these ornaments.

After adding these to some sturdy cardstock with ribbon, we added some mica flakes and some silver German glass glitter. I love these two elements on Christmas decorations. Don't worry, the girls used gloves and were very careful. They know not to touch this glitter and I did most of the work on that part.

I've had these globe ornaments since last year. Just seemed like a perfect element, these trees, to put inside of the globes along with some mica flakes.

The back of these beauties are Cassandra's designs as well. Add some mica and trim and you're done.

This picture is very blurry as I took it with no flash, but it allows you to see how the Christmas tree lights shine through these globes. They look really beautiful.
My thanks again to Cassandra for all of her hard work this year and for believing in my work for her design team. To get some of Cassandra's designs for your work visit her shop Cassi's Creations.
Have a great holiday!
