12 Days of Christmas Day 3

This project I am going to share with you has become one of my new favorites. Jennifer Stricker sent me this beautiful little paper ornament, complete with beautifully bent wire and scraps of ribbon for the hanging portion, along with lace and buttons for the finishing touches. She used an ATC transparency piece from the Birds ATC transparency sheet, and I just love the effect.

Here is what Jennifer did in her words.
Paper} Solid-Chipboard, PP-Papertrey Ink, Vintage Sheet music
Transparency} PP
Ribbon} May arts
Ink} Tea Distress ink, Rock Candy-Tim Holtz
Tools} Copics, Wire, 100 wishes paper flowers, vintage buttons, cotton string, Crop-a-dile eyelets,vintage lace, Cricut (die-cut swirl)

Colored PP transparency on back side with Copics, and mounted patterned paper behind image. Mounted that transparency onto the music paper, curling back the corners and distress inking the whole thing. Mounted that music paper on a piece of chipboard for stability, trimming to match shape of paper. Added the wire through eyelets, and decorated with flowers and ribbon. Painted the edges with Rock Candy to add a distressed look. Added lace, die-cut swirl and buttons to finish it off.

  1. What an awesome way to use these paper ornaments for something with a bit more staying power. I really love how she used the transparency sheet with all of these beautiful scraps. The distress work is excellent! Great job!
