December Class with Melissa Phillips

What crafter doesn't want scrapbook supplies on her tree in the form of gorgeous ornaments?

Small Round Tins Holiday Lights Poinsettia Ruby Red Flowers by Prima
Christmas Past Jolly Old St. Nicholas Pattern Paper by Graphic 45
Christmas Past Die Cut Frames by Graphic 45
White Mica Flakes by Melissa Frances
Christmas Kraft Cardstock Stickers by Hambly Screen Prints
Holiday Multi Color Baker’s Twine by Martha Stewart Crafts

    1. Paint metal tin with off-white acrylic paint and let dry.
    2. Cut a strip of Jolly Old St. Nicholas paper to fit around base of tin and adhere.
    3. Coat entire tin with spray adhesive and sprinkle Mica Flakes over the top.
    4. Wrap twill ribbon around tin and tie in two bows at the top of ornament.
    5. Make tag from small die cut and tie to center of bows using Baker’s Twine.
    6. Adhere large poinsettia flower slightly off-center.
    7. Attach “Noel” sticker near bottom to complete.

    **Another option for this ornament would be to hide a small gift or money inside and then hang on the tree as a Christmas present.
