Wild Orchid Crafts Christmas in July

Gosh - Is it Friday already? Gosh! And that also means that it is day 5 of the Wild Orchid Crafts and Lili of the Valley Christmas in July celebration!



For my project today I have used one of the gorgeous new Lili Of the Valley Christmas stamps "Make it Festive" and made a Shaker Ornament.


Shaker Ornament:
To make your shaker ornament you will need:
  • Patterned paper for the back
  • Patterned paper for the front
  • Heavy cardstock for reinforcing your paper
  • Acetate sheet
  • German Glass Glitter
  • Coloured image
  • Foam tape
  • Adhesive
  • Embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts
1. Colour your image and choose the dies you wish to use. You will need a nestie (or other die) large enough to fit another nestie inside with a boarder of 1/4 inch. I have used Large Classic Ovals and Labels 18.


2. To give your shaker ornament a bit more stability, adhere the patterened paper to some heavy cardstock. Do this with the rear of the ornament as well as the front.
3. Cut your 'window' with your oval nestie and line up your label nestie over the cut piece so you have a border large enough to attach foam tape later on. I like to have 1/4 inch.
4. Use your shaped nestie to cut around your coloured image and adhere this to your backing piece.
5. Cut a piece of acetate with the shaped nestie as well
6. Adhere the acetate shape to the back of the front of the frame to create a window
7. Attach some foam tape around the frame, being careful that you have no gaps for the glitter to fall out but also so you can't see the foam tape from the front of the window section

Now the fun part :)
8. Pour about 2 teaspoons of German Glass Glitter into the window. I have used 'silver'.

9.  Then remove the tape backing and attach the coloured image to the window,carefully lining up the corners.
10. Your shaker ornament is now coming together...
11. If you like a vintage look, ink the edges with some distress stain.

12. Then add some Seam binding "Oloroso", 20mm Open Roses in Deep red, 10 mm Open Roses in Cream and 5mm closed rose buds in Red roses, Holly leaves and charm to your shaker ornament.
And the finished Ornament

Now... it just wouldn't be a Christmas celebration without some pressies now would it? Wild Orchid crafts are offering this gorgeous gift. If you would like to win these gorgeous goodies in the photo below... just leave me a comment before July 24th to be in the running. 


I would like to enter these challenges:


Thanks for visiting me today and I'll be back a bit later on with something else to share,
Hugs
