A Blue Christmas Without You!

Seriously, if you weren't visiting this blog I'd feel like, what's the point!? It is great to have everyone stop by, and I am still pondering which ornament will be RAK'd by week's end, or if I will be making something new. I still have more ornaments to make!

Everyone likes Prima flowers, right? Well, for the scrapbooker on your list, why not work one into an ornament? The beauty of snowflakes is that each one is unique and special, and today's ornament adds a touch of warm weather daisy to cold weather flakes.

Magistical Memories 4” snowflake shape
• Prima flower
• Perfect Pearls by Ranger Industries
• Sparkle Mod Podge
• Stickles by Ranger – Diamond
• Blue, fine glitter by Martha Stewart
• Gem Brad – Making Memories
• Acrylic Paint
• Ribbon

How To:
1. Paint chipboard white
2. for 2nd coat add white Perfect Pearls to paint and recover snowflake for shimmer
3. Use foam brush and paint on sparkle mod podge
4. Place glitter in a shallow dish and place ornament wet side down, pressing lightly
5. Shake off excess and return glitter to original container
6. Allow to dry completely
7. Punch hole on one branch to allow for hanger
8. Feed ribbon, or other, through and tie into a bow
9. Punch hole in center, and attach coordinating flower with gem brad
10. Use Stickles to add a tiny touch of bling to the flower petals

Today, in the DT Classroom at the Scrapbook Playground you can find instructions for this unique ornament featuring a tie-dye look. Take my word for it, it looks spectacular on the tree with lights dancing behind the Pageframe shape colored with Ranger Adirondack inks. Check out complete how to HERE.
