Ornament Making

Well tonight the Altered States of Mind group is getting together for our Christmas party. We were to make a Christmas something, so I made an ornament. I used an Altoids tin and covered the front with metalic tape that I embossed and colored with alcohol inks.

I also added a beaded border at the bottom. These beads are attached to ribbon and I just attached with double sided tape the bottom of the tin. These beads started out green but I wanted blue so I first sprayed with Denim Color Wash to see if the color change would work on these plastic beads and it did!!! Next I covered the edges of the tin with blue ribbon and added an extra loop for hanging on the tree.

The back of the ornament is just covered with printed paper.

Last I added embossed paper to the inside and made 3 labels from my Dymo label maker. I cut metallic strips 3/8 " wide from the metallic tape and used it instead of the Dymo tape. The words say "Snowmen Fall Unassembled". How appropiate. I also added a few snowflakes here & there to complete the look.

Well that is it for now, thanks for stopping by, see you soon
