Deck the Halls with Annie's Paper Boutique!

 Hello Trendy Twine fans!  Today on the Trendy Twine blog we are super excited to jump start the Christmas season with a group post featuring Christmas ornaments.  Now is the time to get working on those fun seasonal projects that you may not have time to complete later on in the season.  Not only would these ornaments be beautiful gracing your own home, they would make fantastic handmade gifts!  Without further ado, here is the project I made to share with you today:

I started with a 2.64" clear acrylic Christmas ornament.  The insert was cut from acetate.  To make the stable design, I stamped the image from the APB Merry Christmas stamps onto white paper, scanned it into my computer, and traced the image in my SCAL4 software to cut out of permanent black vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo.  I did enlarge the image by about 1/2" from what the original stamp was.  Once I rolled the acetate and got it inside the ornament, I added fake snow and lots of Delightful sequins.

For the top of the ornament, I knotted red chevron ribbon from the Chevron Ribbon Sampler first, then made a double bow using Holly Trendy Twine and Totally Kraft Trendy Twine and glued it to the front of the ribbon.  The hanger for the ornament was simply Holly Trendy Twine and I added a small tag to it with a sentiment from the APB Merry Christmas stamp set that was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Gold powder.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
