Sizzix Triple Blog Hop Week #6~Babies First Christmas

Here we are at week #6 of the Sizzix Triple Blog Hop! We are working with an Album and Brackets "die" designed by Brenda Pinnick! We are so thrilled, as a family, to welcome a new granddaughter into the family! So, I decided to make a first Christmas ornament for her! Since my daughter is not one for pink, I thought I would create something for me and the little one... that was pink! Because, I love pink!

You will need:
Sizzix Die # 656053, Album, Brackets by Brenda Pinnick
5" x 8" Pink Felt by National Non-Wovens
5" x 10" Card Stock
8-1/2'" x 11" coordinating paper
1/2 yard each, 1/2" coordinating ribbons
Fabri-Tac by Beacon Adhesives
Celebration Pink Glamour Dust by DecoArt
3/4" pink button, 1/2" flat brush (loew-cornell), scissors

Cut pieces out of cardstock and felt, glue felt onto cardstock, print a saying onto colored paper. Cut out in the shape of the small ornament. Brush glamour dust on the outside edges of the felt. Glue felt onto shaped cardstock. Punch a hole in the top corner. Tie a bow in the hole. Cut a ribbon and glue to the top and bottom of the pink felt. Insert paper saying inside of ribbon slots, glue in place!  You may choose to adhere a picture of your sweet grandchild or child. Enjoy!

Very quick and easy. You can make one for each of your grandchildren, children, friends and family members. Use several different felt colors to enhance the decor of your Christmas tree. Lime green, pink, gold and purple are BIG trends this year for Christmas!

I received product to create this design.
