Ann Melvin Independent Craft Addict|Easy Shaker Style Ornament
I told you i would be back :-) I am so excited to bring you my first project as a 'free' Woman haha. I have lots of great tutorials coming up & i am so happy most of you are staying with me :-)
I am kicking my first project off with these really cute photo ornaments. I was shopping in B&M the other day when i came across them. They were only £2.49 for 4. You get 2 circles & 2 star shapes. They are designed to hold pictures but i wanted to decorate mine a bit more.
They are so easy to make and you could add sequins, glitter or faux snow like i have. I picked a large bag of faux snow up from my local pound shop. You get a picture already inside the ornament, don't throw it away until you have drew round it, this will give you a template for whatever paper or card you want to put inside.
The red Truck is a stamp set that i bought from http://www.craftstash.co.uk i stamped it out using Tuxedo Black ink then i coloured it in with alcohol markers. The Trees are die cuts and the background is glitter card.
The other ornament was decorated with a cute Ginger Bread Man die.
These would make very inexpensive gifts or you could just make them for your own home. I hope you like them :-)
Please check out my YouTube tutorial which you can find listed at the end of this blog post. I will be back again next week with lots more tutorials.
Love Ann xx
