Today's project is a fun project for everyone. I started with a fresh colour combo and it became my inspiration for the entire project. Last year my kids made these really neat stocking ornaments at our local museum last December where we learned about a pioneer Christmas. We got to see all the toys and decorations that were made for the family in the late 1800s and early 1900s. It was that experience that inspired me to create the felt gift certificate ornament...of course there weren't gift cards in the early days (maybe IOUs...) but I figured I would put a 2000s twist on it.
I wanted to show you that you can either have the GC showing or you can hide it...
The How To... (you can follow along in the instructions)
- Create card base and layers. Create impression on card base.
- Stamp sentiments with VersaMark and apply clear emboss. Heat set.
- Stamp sentiment on die cut tag.
- Attach ribbon.
- Attach snowflake die and threaded button.
- Adhere all layers.
FELT GIFT CARD ORNAMENT
- Cut ornament from cardstock. Trace on felt using a marker. Cut. Repeat. (see above photos)
- Cut a slit in the center of one of the ornament cut outs.
- Now that you have two ornaments in felt, place over top of each over and punch holes around the edges. (refer to photo above)
- Attach buttons.
- Stamp sentiment on ribbon.
- Thread ornament with waxy thread (or thread of your choice).
- Attach thread at the top of the ornament and tie a knot.
