Easy, Fun Christmas Ornament-Last Minute Gift Idea

Last month, the LimeLight DT shared some wonderful Christmas ornament ideas with you. If you remember, I created a picture keepsake ornament with a photo of my boys on one side and a stamped image on the opposite side. I got the idea from myself, from a project I sent in to Stampin' Up! the month before. My ornaments didn't get picked for their monthly contest, but I've been dying to share them with you all. I love how they turned out and I even love how inexpensive they are to make. You just need some chipboard and your favorite stamping supplies (paper, ribbon, and stamps if you want). I love also love that you have two ornaments in one, because you get to decorate both sides. This giant scalloped circle one is my favorite. I added the Merry Christmas sentiment from a Cardinal Christmas to the bottom of the photo. The next one I'll show you was created with the Top Note die, just like the ornament I did for my Limelight project. This one uses the I Wish Simply Scrappin' kit along with the beautiful felt ribbon Stampin' Up! carries this winter. I even added our personalized stamp to this ornament so I could sent this out as our Christmas Card to some special family members this year. I hope this gives some of you some easy last minute gift ideas. These are those "perfect" grandparent gifts. Take the idea and run with it, make it your own. You could really use any fun shape die to create your own personalized ornament. Happy Stamping!
Hugs, Lisa
