Time for some Decorating!

Yippee!!! I finally had a chance to stamp something other than a Christmas Card. I had seen this done before and just had to try it out myself. I stamped 10 ornaments from the Delightful Decorations stamp set and punched them out with the Ornament Punch. I scored down the centre of each punched ornament to make folding in half easier.
I started by folding an ornament in half with the stamped side on the inside. I applied my snail adhesive onto the back of the folded punch and then layered another folded punch on top. I continued this process until I had stacked all 10 of the folded punched ornaments together.

I threaded a bead onto some ribbon and tied a knot at the bottom to make a large loop on top of the bead. I then laid the loop down the seam of the stacked ornaments and applied adhesive on the back of the last folded ornament. I then attached the first and last ornament in the stack together to form a circle around the ribbon. I then attached a bow to the top of the ornament with a glue dot. And there you have it. I hope I didn't lose anyone in the explanation. If I did, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will have to show you in person. It is quite simple, just a bit tedious. I am trying to decide how many of these I want to make for my tree :)

I seem to have been posting every 10 days lately, but that will be changing after today! I have missed not being here to share with you.
