Snow and Holly

I've been having so much fun making ornaments this year.
I've been using paper by Craft Smith Co. and enjoying the quality and color schemes.
These ornaments combine 2 other loves of mine:
Altered Items and Kreaxions Punches!!!
Circle Frames
Save an empty Morton's Salt container (26 oz.).
Mark a line around the container 1" from the end. Cut with a craft knife.
Paint inside and outside of cardboard black.
Cut a circle of paper to place in the bottom of the frame.
Punch a hole 1/2 inch from the edge of the frame with a paper piercer.
Add a loop of twine, tying a knot to keep it from slipping through.

Star Insert
Cut a second circle in a contrasting color.
Using a protractor mark 5 sections at 72 degrees each.
Punch on each line with Kreaxions 4-in-1 Punch #914 or #312.
Trim an 1/8 to a 1/4 circle of paper from the edge so that the contrasting paper in the back of the frame shows through.
Adhere the star to the circle frame with 3-D foam adhesive.
Embellish with glitter glue.

Scrap On!
