Christmas Card Ornaments Tutorial.

Recently I wanted to design a card
that could be an ornament too.
So I came up with this design.
A sheet music fan background
with snowflake center,
greeting graphic added to the middle,
glittered tinsel edge
and a message on the backside.

These are the supplies you will need:

1. Sheet music graphic and snow scene graphic

2. Round wood disc to glue the graphic on 
with mod podge.

3. White glittered snowflake
found at any craft shop.

4. Winter style card stock for
backside message.

5. Snowflake stickers or whatever
you choose to accent the back message.

6. Blue distress ink with sponge applicator
to ink the edge of the wood disc.

7.Circles template for making round circles.

8.Ribbon for hanging.

9.Fancy cut scissors for back message edge
and regular scissors for cutting graphics.

10. Hot glue gun.

11. Glitter or Fairy Dust.

12.Sharpie pen for writing message.

You will need 2 copies of the sheet music in the 8x10 size.
Next, fold into a fan shape for both.
Fold each fan sheet in half after folding and glue in place.
Hot glue both halves together to form
one circle with the two fans.

Next, add the graphic greeting to the wood disc
with mod podge,
ink the edge with distress ink and glue on the white snowflake.

Glitter the snow scene using mod podge
and fairy dust or glitter.

Add the snowflake to the center of the fan circle.
Now add the tinsel ribbon to the edge
with hot glue.

For the message on the backside,
cut a round circle using a template
and cut around with fancy scissors if you choose.

Add the circle to the backside with hot glue
and embellish with glittered snowflake stickers
or any accent of your choice.
Lastly cut 12" white or any color thin ribbon
(for the hanger)
to coordinate with your ornament.
Hot glue in place between the folds at the top.

Now your ornament card is complete
and ready to mail using a padded envelope.
It will be so pretty on the Christmas tree
and a special memory for the receiver to
enjoy for years to come.

That's it,
Christmas Card Ornaments.

Thanks for stopping by.
See you next time~~
