HSS #95 - Anything BUT a card, ORNAMENTS

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments...it's all about decking the halls, trees, mantels, door ways, pretty much anything you can get your sparkly paws on! Create anything BUT a card and use a festive ORNAMENT theme! 

I started off cutting the same width of stripes I used for my Bargello card and after layering them in a patterned stack, I cut a hole in one end with my Crop A Dile. I threaded a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon through and tied a knot at one end. After punching another hole through the opposite side of the strips and threading through the ribbon, I squished the top papers down to bit to create more of a rounded look, you can play with yours, if you want it more elongated or round.
I've made these ornaments in the past and didn't like how my pieces would fan apart, so this time I used a mini glue dot towards the top of each piece as I fanned them out in order.  A loop of my ribbon, a knot and then I added a bit of pearly bling with some baubles from my old Pretties kit.

Check out what the Design Team has whipped up this week HERE. We can't wait to see what you create with this fun challenge, the sky's the limit! You have until Monday, December 5th at Noon to link up your creation, now go get some sparkle on! (don't forget the Christmas music)

I love the papers you used and the pop of the glitter paper mixed in! The dangling beads are the perfect touch.
