Homemade Ornament

Merry Christmas! with today being Christmas eve, I wanted to show one more Christmas project. I made this ornament with leftover packaging, from a Buttons and Bling package of Bobunny product. What I did was to cut out the domed circle with deco scissors, leaving just enough to eventually glue together. Then I tore up some white cardstock to make my ground, adding on three trees I cut out with Bobunny Tis the Season. I added some gems from Bobunny's iCandy to top the trees and centers in therubon snowflakes that I also added on.
Before I glued the circle edges together, I added some large glitter flakes into the dome, and then glued it together. To finish it off, I punched a small hole in the top, adding in a small metal circle hanger, then a thin red ribbon, with a twine bow and button for decoration on my hanger.
The fun thing about this ornament, the more you shake it- the prettier it is- and my girls are still of the age to play with our tree ornaments- fortunately this is unbreakable and definately one it's ok to play with.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
