Glittery Chipboard Ornaments!

Hello everybody! Sorry for the lack of weekend updates, I was busy making the Trupp Family Christmas cards. I even got my mom to help. We only have a few more to make. We did 2 designs, each design had 2 versions, the mail version (i.e. FLAT so it could be sent at the .51 rate, and not the 1.05 rate) and the in-person version (not so flat, bows and knots and whatnot).


Today, I had time to go to a local scrapbooking store. I saw the Holiday Undressed Chipboard by Basic Grey. Is that stuff ever fun. The shapes are crazy detailed! So I picked up a pack, as well as some Fruitcake paper. I've only made one so far, but they are so easy. I covered both sides (one already has adhesive). Then I sanded it, covered one side in versamark and coated with iridescent ice. I tied some silver cord through the top, and look at that, a lovely ornament. Just think, you could decorate your whole tree with Basic Grey papers. It'd be a gorgeous tree too. And you wouldn't have paid tons of money for the ornaments!
