Magical Monday - Christmas Ornament

This week over at the Paper Cupcake Challenge blog Carol West brings us our challenge. She wanted to challenge us to make a Christmas Ornament. At first I was a little stumped at how I was going to do it and then I decided I would use some felt with my image and this is what I came up with. It is way cute in person and I actually added some Stickle around the edges of the image after I took the picture so these pictures do not have the Stickles on the main image. This is actually stuffed and sewn together and you can hardly see the red thread on the outside in these pics. I used my spellbinders to cut the felt and the image. I just really kind of created as I went along. The main image is from Paper Cupcakes and is called "Moose Couple" and the little ticket on the back is the "Christmas Tickets" by Paper Cupcakes as well. I colored my image with my Bic Mark-its and used a glaze pen for the white dots.










Well, we had an extremely busy weekend, gone each night and I am extremely tired. I will be starting a small mural tomorrow and hopefully I will finish in a day or two, so I don't have any of that together yet and need to head that way and then bed. So thanks for stopping by and make it a great week!

What a creative ornament you have made. I love the felt backing and the buttons you've used to tie it all together along with the stitching. This is great inspiration and also make a wonderful tag. Thanks so much! "Hugs" Carol
