There will be a giveaway each day & a winner will be announced each day! Example, winner of Monday will be announced on Tuesday, winner of Tuesday will be announced on Wednesday.....and so on! All you have to do is leave your comments on each stop for a chance to win a $15 Gift Card to the My Creative Time store!
ALSO, in addition to the $15 Gift Card that will be given away each day, Emma has a special prize that she will be giving away on Friday! It’s a few of her favorite things from 2018! I hope we ALL inspire you this week!
Today, we are going to surprise you with different ideas!!  I made for you today, three paper ornaments!  I actually love making ornaments for my tree.  While I love seeing big, beautiful trees with all the large, sparkly ornaments, I cannot justify spending a lot of money on Christmas ornaments for these reasons: 1. I am a klutz. 2. They are glass. 3. They will break. 4. I have two cats that like to bat things around. 

Every year, I try to make a few paper ornaments for my tree. These are fun, can be as fancy as you want, don't break and are easy to store!!  

I made these using the Bunch of Stitched Doily Dies for the base of the ornament. Then used various stamps and dies to decorate them.

I used the Number Fun Dies & Add Ons Set for the "25", the Hot Chocolate Season Stamp and Die set for the mugs and candy canes as well as the More Stitched Edges Dies to create hills and ledges!  The Doily dies are perfect for ornaments as they provide a place to loop the twine!  I do back each ornament with a second die cut for stability.

What's nice about a project like this is that you don't have to worry about filling up an entire card front!  It's a small area so you can use your smaller stamps and dies, as well!!  Also, a lot of the fun is in adding the details like sequins, glitter and shine.

I really hope you are inspired to try making some paper ornaments!!  Now onto the super fun giveaway for today!!!

***GIVEAWAY*** Don’t forget to leave your comments on all of our blogs for a chance to win a $15 gift card to the My Creative Time store AND for a chance to win this prize pkg from Emma! These are a few of her favorite things from 2018!
