I have a small Christmas tree in my studio and since Christmas ornaments are not available here (overseas), I figured I’ll make my own.  For my projects today, I am showcasing the Ornament Shaker Die Set with the Holiday Greetings Die Set.


Here’s how I made these ornaments:

  • die-cut the ornaments and ornament tops with some silver and rose gold card stock.  Since I needed 6 ornaments, I had to die-cut it a few times.
  • die-cut the acetate sheets using the outer ornament die.  Adhere the same with liquid glue.
  • add foam adhesive to create the shaker well.
  • use some chunky glitter as the shaker element.  Adhere the other piece to close the shaker.
  • die-cut the words “merry” and “bright” with some rose gold card stock.  Adhere these words on the ornaments with liquid glue.
  • adhere the ornament tops using liquid glue.  Don’t forget to also adhere the ornament tops on the back side.
  • use some silver ribbon to the ornament to hang them on the tree.
  • decorate the Christmas tree!

  1. The comment someone else made above occurred to me, too… the pink/orange scheme reminds me a bit of Dr Seuss / The Grinch. Love these beautiful ornaments!
