Scrappy Ornaments

This ornament was made with some cuts from the Elegant Cakes cartridge. One large flower and three smaller spaced around the paper band embossed with the Cuttlebug Plum Blossom Embossing folder. The embossed paper strip is attached to the ball with very tacky double sided tape. The flowers are glued and embellished with antique linen distress stickles.

 Strip of paper with 4 rhinestone brads spaced equally around the ornament, attached with very tacky doublesided tape.

The flowers were assembled (these were from 3 Birds) and held together with the brad. Then attached to the ornament with some substantial glue dots, 1/2  inch wide with about 1/8 inch depth. I'm thinking it would also be fun to cover the ornament completely.

 Papertrey Ink White twine in 3 Birds Buttons. The buttons were attached to the ornament with a hot glue gun..

A border cut from the Elegant Cakes cartridge. The circumference of the ball was about 6 1/2 inches. This was cut fit to length at 7.5 because there was some overlap needed. I applied Stickles to the front of the cut.

INSPIRING ornaments! I love that you did these, they are making me think of all kinds of things to do. My favorite is the buttons I think with a close second to the elegant cakes border ornament. I don't have an elegant cake cartridge so of course, that is the one I would fall in love with!
