DIY Christmas Ornaments-Video Tutorial

Hello there,

I am grabbing two minutes to update my blog between writing nearly 150 cards today. Its ok, I have the music on and a BIG pot of my current favourite Teapigs Spiced Winter Red Tea to keep me going, it would be AMAZING if I managed to get all my posting done today :)

The tree has been put up 2 days ago, it is massive and bare at the minute but I am hoping to tackle that as well as the rest of the house decorating this weekend. And just like every year my tree will have lots of handmade ornaments. One of them will be these really cute and very easy to make

They take no time at all and would work just as well done in paper as they do in the fab canvas from Stampin'Up!. I used the fabby Snowflakes Flurry stamps along the fabulous More Merry Messages sentiment stamps.

They look very pretty hanged on a bunch of twigs in a vase or a basket for a bit of natural  Christmas decorating. And the texture of the canvas is so pretty :)

And I do love an all natural decor but I love it even more if it has touches of glitz and glamour like these pretty frosted embellishments :)

Enjoy watching the quick video, and I hope you might even want to give them a try :)

As always thank you for your visit :)
