I love making Christmas ornaments and they make nice gifts.
I made this one using one of the Winter Woods images from Deedee's Digis and 2 snowflakes I cut out using my Cricut and the Winter Lace cartridge.
The Winter Woods set comes with both colored images and uncolored images. For this I decided to use the colored image so that those of you that don't color can see that what it looks like. I printed it out at 3" high and 3 1/4" wide. Then I cut it out with a 3" Sizzix circle die. I also cut a 3" circle from acetate for the window of the shaker part. The snowflakes were cut at 5" and 4". The 5" snowflake's top layer was cut twice, one for the front and one for the back so that both sides look like a snowflake. After the layers of the 4" snowflake were glued together I used the 2 1/2" SIzzix circle die to cut the opening in the center. I sprayed the snowflakes with Krylon Glitter Blast Diamond Dust.
If you need to know how to put a shaker card (or in this case ornament) together, please watch my YouTube video on making a snowglobe shaker card...click HERE
In this case however, in place of the second piece of acetate you will be using the Winter Woods image that you cut out.
