Day 1: 12 Days of Christmas Projects

Welcome to my 12 days of Christmas projects. I have a bunch of fun things to share. From December 1st through December 12th I'll be posting something fun each day. Today I have a simple ornament that I made. This is one of the easiest things you can make that will add some cheer to your Christmas tree and not cost a fortune to make.
Stamp (From the December Royal Kit @ QKD)Bazzil Basics Chipboard Shape, Green Mini Beads, SEI Christmas Paper, Tombow, Gold Adirondack Paint Dauber, Sand Paper, Gold Cord, White Cardstock, Green Ink Pad, Popsicle Stick and YES! Glue

1. Cover the chipboard piece on both sides with patterned paper using your tombow to adhere it to the chipboard.
2. Sand the edges of the paper to make them "distressed" looking and to get rid of the "cut" edges on the chipboard.
3. Using your paint daubber, go around the edges of the covered chipboard to paint the raw edge and add a little sparkle to the front and back of the ornament.
4. Stamp "Cheer" onto a small piece of white cardstock, cut into a rectangle and apply to the front of the ornament with tombow.
5. Using your popsicle stick and YES! glue, apply a layer generously around the "Cheer" sentiment. Apply green mini beads and shake off excess. You can apply them 2-3 times until all of the YES! glue is covered.
6. Tie some gold cord in the hole and hang on your Christmas Tree.
I hope you've enjoyed today's project. Come back tomorrow for my next project.
