Merry Christmas Ornament

This is the 10th project for the 12 Days of Christmas swap!

Stamps: Bells & Boughs, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzaz
DSP: Holly Berry Bouquet
Ink: Black Stazon, Early Espresso
Markers: So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive, Always Artichoke
Accessories: 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Snowflake Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Simply Score, hot glue gun, Stampin' Dimensionals, Clear Tinsel Trim (retired).

I cut three pieces of DSP at 2-1/2" (I think...I forgot to write the measurement down) x 12". I scored each piece every 1/2" and accordion folded the DSP. Add Sticky Strip to join the DSP into one very long strip. Then use Sticky Strip to join one end with the other to form a circle. Cut a very long piece of ribbon (I used clear tinsel trim here) and thread it through the center of the DSP circle. Punch out two circles with the 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle punch. Heat up the glue gun. Carefully hold the lolli down flat and apply hot glue to the center, then place the scalloped circle on top and hold it there until the glue has cooled. Repeat on the other side.

For one side I stamped the bells from Bells & Boughs onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock in Stazon ink. I colored in the image with markers and then punched it out with the 1-3/4" Circle punch. This was adhered onto one of the scalloped circles in the center of the lolli. For the other side I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny wishes onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock and punched it out with the Word Window punch. This was layered onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler punched with the Modern Label punch. A snowflake was punched form Early Espresso cardstock with the Snowflake punch and it was adhered behind the modern label. Dazzling Details was added to the snowflake to give it some sparkle. After the Dazzling Details dried the label was adhered to the other scalloped circle with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Then the ends of the Tinsel Trim were tied into a knot so the ornament could hag on a Christmas tree, or onrmanent hanger in this case.

So much fun and so easy to make!
