BE MERRY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT

Making one of the Be Merry Christmas Ornaments from the Be Merry Kit is fun – or at least I think so.  You can see the kit on page 32 of the holiday catalog.  The kit makes 12 ornaments and the only things you need to have on hand are adhesive and a decent pair of tweezers.2017.11.20 Be Merry Red

Isn’t this just too cute.  Several years ago we made rosettes (also called medallions) from scratch and let me tell you – these are SO MUCH EASIER!!!!!  You can mix the red and the green – do all red or all green or mix the colors as I have done here.  We see red with green ribbon and script here and the green with red ribbon and red script below.

2017.11.20 Be Merry boxedAt our December Stamp Camp, we will make a Be Merry Christmas Ornament AND we will make the clear acetate box to slip the ornament into.  We can even emboss the acetate box with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (page 37 in the holiday catalog).  This makes a darling, inexpensive gift for a co-worker, friend or neighbor.  The acetate card boxes (page 13 in the holiday catalog) are also perfect for gifting several handmade cards.  I recently donated 4 boxes for a fund raiser each with 5 cards.  As my cards had several embellishments, 5 cards was a tight squeeze in the box .  I added ribbon and the boxed cards were very attractive.

December St;amp Camp will be held on November 30, December 1 and December 2.  Times are 12N – 6 PM on the 30th and 1st, and 9AM – 4 PM on the 2nd.  We will be making a Christmas ornament as seen above including the acetate box, 2 eclipse cards and 2018 calendars.  In case you are wondering why Stamp Camp is not the normal December 7, 8, 9, it is because hubby and I are going to Wisconsin for December 8, 9, 10. Check back soon for the next blog.  Oh yes, if you can let me know what day you are coming, it would be helpful.
