Christmas In July Blog Hop -- Week 3 -- Ornaments

Hi everyone and welcome to week #3 of the Christmas In July Blog Hop.
This weeks project is ornaments.

If you arrived from http://scrappycol.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place.

Thanks to everyone who is hopping along this week.

I've created a 3-d snowflake ornament using white cardstock, glue, Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter, and the Cricut cartridge Cheerful Seasons by Creative Memories.

I used 7 snowflakes cut at 5 1/2 inches.  I folded 6 of the snowflakes in half, making sure to crease them well.  I glued 3 together, then another 3 together.  The last one got all of it's appendages cut off so all that remained was the center.  I adhered one set of three to each side.  Once it was all glued and dried and used a sponge brush and some simple Elmer's glue to cover all the sides and added the glitter.  I punched a hole through the top and added a string.  It's all ready for the tree.

Hope you like it.  Don't forget to become a follower of my blog and comment below to for a chance to win an embossing folder.
