Vintage Christmas Ornament - Buttons Galore!

Hello Everyone!

Well it's the last day of July and as an ode to the strange craft world phenomenon 'Christmas in July', I thought I would squeeze in one last Christmas item. This month I did one Christmas Card and one Christmas Tag, so I thought I should do one Christmas Ornament.

I was inspired by the challenge over at the Hobby Cutz Challenge Blog. This week is Challenge #58 - Buttons Galore. Isn't that a fun challenge! You should slip in there and see the DT designs...inspiring!

Hope you enjoy!





The ripped pieces of paper were stamped with Hero Arts shadow ink Soft Sand and edged with Tim Holtz distress ink Brushed Corduroy. The ribbon is also coloured with Brushed Corduroy. I used some matte Mod Podge to adhere the paper pieces to a styrofoam ball, then stuck on some embellies, presto done-o!


Dies: the gold caps on the top and bottom were done with Spellbinders Stately Circles then formed with my stylus.
Stamps: too many to mention!
Seriously, I think I used almost every single stamp I own!
From My Stash: buttons, snowflake charm, seam binding, stamens and sparkly leaves


I am also entering my Christmas ornament into two other wonderful challenges.

Die Cuttin' Divas - Challenge #176 - Anything Goes (Spellbinders Stately Circles for my end caps)

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one!
If you have any questions, please let me know.

  3. This is a very beautiful project that I must have a go at, at some point. It's sounds very simple from your right up but so effective. Thank you for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown this week. Kerry, DT
