More Christmas stuff!
For this pinecone I discovered the use of the Stampin' Up photo corner punch and it made this a cinch to make. Much easier than my first where I folded all of those square into points! Start with the smaller corner size around the bottom of the styrofoam egg and continue layering and overlapping all of the way around with the slightly larger corners and finish at the top with the smaller ones again. These are all secured with pins. Embellish top as desired.
My second ornament was very inexpensive (about a dollar) to make and really looks gorgeous on the tree where the light reflects off of all of those gold beads. Clear acrylic ornament from Michael's filled with a gold bead garland that I scored at Goodwill today. I got a huge bag filled with garlands, baubles, and beads for $2. This will keep me happily crafting for a while. The poinsettia is from K&Co.
The third is a card I made for Speedy's Friends challenge this week for a circle on your card. I used the Seasonal Poinsettias from Mark's Finest Papers and Memory Box paper, Santa charm is also from MFP. Faith has the cutest embellishments!
