Hi! It’s Candy, back with an easy and inexpensive gift for a co-worker, family, friend or even yourself!

I love the ornament Peel-Offs from Elizabeth Craft Designs. There are lots of different designs and they are all fun to color. Round ones and other similar shapes are just perfect for making ornaments that can be hung on the tree, mantel, or a door knob! With a sturdy chipboard backing they’ll last for many years.

Remove the release sheet and place it upside down in front of you. Place peel-offs sticky side up on your release sheet, then place white cardstock with adhesive side facing down on top. Turn over, remove release sheet and cover adhesive with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish and brush of excess glitter. Color with alcohol markers. Fussy cut out each piece.

2. Cut a piece of chipboard slightly larger than the ornament. Adhere the ornament to the front and a piece of decorative paper to the back of the chipboard. Fussy cut the ornament out again.

3. Use a black Sharpie or any permanent black marker to color around the edge of the ornament so the sides of the ornament will be black to match the outlines in the peel-off.

4. Punch a hole in the top of the ornament and tie a ribbon through it to create a loop for hanging.

5. Add Red Glitter Dots to the holly berries. Adhere the holly to the top of the ornament.

    Very nice, it would look lovely on a glass ornament too! Your color choice is very calming, just what this time of year should be about! Blessings, Lisa
