Hello there crafty friends. I'm super excited about today's share :D. About a year ago, or so, I started saving these Bo Bunny Button/bling packs: I had seen some neat ways of recycling them online by making cards and such & knew I'd want to give that a try at some point...
I decided to use them to make ornaments to sell at the Bargain Hunt. I used both the dome piece and the piece that interlocks into the dome (to securely keep the buttons inside). I cut both circles out very close, but left a small lip for gluing purposes. Then I took a Maya Road House (chipboard coaster) mini and traced them onto October Afternoon's & Fancy Pants Christmas paper (left over from last year). I traced coordinating paper to cut a circle the size of the domes. Then I stamped & paper pieced away. The owl/snowflake stamps are from Hero Arts and the sentiments are from Lawn Fawn's Cozy Christmas Set. I colored the owls in with copics and popped them up with foamies. I then added Marth Stewart course glitter to the and circle and added Glossy Accent to the edges of the domes and glued that to the stamped papers. Let them dry & had the cutest ornaments ever!!
I covered the backs of the houses with coordinating paper, and then I used the "Merry Christmas" stamp from the Hero Arts Owl set & wrote in 2010. I buy a dated keepsake ornament every year, so I thought that'd be a nice touch.
I just love them, heaps of love!! I also had a neat idea: I'm going to have a mini artificial Christmas tree to display all of the ornaments I've made...smart ;).
Well, that's my share for today. Hope you likes ;). have a great day!
