Festive Holiday Handmade Ornament

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having an awesome day so far!  Welcome back for some more festive (Christmas in July) crafty inspiration.  Today I want to show you how you can take some elegant die cuts and stamped images to create a lovely ornament that you can gift for those special people in your lives.


Products Used:

HCPC-3792 – Festive Holiday Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3793 – Holly Berry Jingle Cling Stamp Set
HCD2-750 – Cut Mat Create 1B Die
HCD1-7146 – Festive Holiday Die
HCD1-7147 – Holly Berry Jingle Die
HCDP1-280 – Festive Holly Paper Collection
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Spellbinders Tool N’ One
Scor-Pal Measuring & Scoring Board

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock, Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, Metallics Cream Chalks, Versamark, Versafine Black Onyx, Red Tinsel Embossing Powder, Ribbon and Bling from my stash, fishing twine and die cutting machine.


Start by die cutting the Festive Holiday Die 10 times out of white card stock. You can do more or less but I found 10 worked for the look I wanted. Scor all 10 in the middle and use your bone folder for a nice clean edge. Once you have them all scored glue the 10 pieces back to back stopping before you glue the last 2 pieces together. We will do that later. Set this aside and let your glue cure fully. Next Die cut the Labels Forty-Two die 4 times and scor down the middle and glue together like the previous step stopping before you close it up and also set aside. The Cardinals image was stamped 4 times on white card stock with Black Onyx and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Metallic s Cream Chalks. The sentiment was stamped 2 times on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Red Tinsel embossing powder and die cut with the Cut Mat Create 1B Die. For the assembly, start by gluing the colored Cardinals to the 4 panels as shown. Next take a piece of fishing twine or other decorative ribbon approximately 14″ long and fold in half. Apply glue to the remaining 2 edges not attached for the 4 panel section and place the cut ends of the ribbon or twine into the center. Use a good amount of glue in the center to ensure that the twine stays fastened. Repeat this process with the 10 panel section and set aside to allow your glue to dry fully. Once the glue has dried glue your 2 sentiments back to back and finish with a few pretty bows and some bling!


Thanks so much for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
