Christmas Traditions - Making Ornaments

I absolutely adore the new Round Layered Ornaments Kit - December 2016 from Alpha Stamps! Especially since I can give them some extra magic by using these silhouette layers inside. They look so beautiful with the glowing Christmas lights.

The set comes with 2 heavy chipboard outer rings, 2 clear plastic domes, and a die-cut (lighter weight chipboard) silhouetted insert to sandwich in the middle of your ornament. You can also use seasonal papers for a two sided ornament, images from collage sheets (like I did using Snowy Winter Day Ornaments Collage Sheet) or even family photos. Imagine all the possibilities! 

The ornaments can also be little shakers full of snow and reindeer food, candies and magical gems. 

"You'll shoot your eye out kid"!

Look how the lace and seam binding have a warm glow from the lights. 

The Glass Christmas Seed Bead Garland is perfect for adding more magical glow to the tree along with this Acrylic Christmas Bead Mix

One side of this Deer in Woods Ornament Layers was painted to look like a daytime scene, while the other side was made dark for the night with "snow" glowing in the moonlight.

Super easy to glue together (just be patient and let the glue dry overnight or your glitter may get stuck around the edges of the dome. This was the perfect project for using clothes pins, to hold the layers tight while they dried.

A little vintage bling is great for the holidays!

I'd love to hear about your holiday traditions and decorating ideas! Feel free to leave a comment to share and thanks for stopping by.
