For the Glue Arts blog this week, our job was to make an ornament with Making Memories paper and die cuts that they kindly donated to us. Thank you MM!
I decided to make a little tree that you can hang as an ornament- but it also does double duty. The box underneath can hold a small gift or note for the recipient.
I used some of MM's gorgeous flocked paper, cut wide strips and scalloped the edges, then layered the pieces onto my tree starting at the bottom and working my way up. To adhere the paper, I used some small pins with pearls on the heads.
I added a few snowflakes with pearl pins as well. Then with the Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun, I hot glued some "snow" to the middle of the snowflakes.
The little gift box is an inexpensive wooden box from the craft store, which I covered with the papers and added a gift tag and snow inside. For full directions, see the Glue Arts blog today!
