Hi everyone, Ashley Young here and I’m excited to share a trio of super simple Christmas ornaments I made out of paper, using lots of Therm O Web supplies!
Paper Christmas Ornaments with Deco Foil
Each of the ornaments in the trio features a different product: Gina K. Designs Fancy Transfer Foil in Radiant Red, Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets in Blue Sky, and Rina K. Designs Neon Glitz Glitter Gel in Screamin’ Green.
For each ornament, I used a circular tag die to die-cut the paper ornaments from white cardstock. I then used a snowflake stencil (this one is Lawn Fawn’s Snowflake Trio stencil) and aligned one of the snowflakes in the center of the circle.
For the first two ornaments, I applied Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo through the stencil using my palette knife and set them both aside to dry for a couple hours. For the third ornament, I applied the green glitz glitter gel through the stencil using my palette knife and set that aside to dry too.
After the ornaments were dry, I cut down a piece of transfer foil in Radiant Red and a flock sheet in the blue sky to be slightly larger than the ornament. For the flocked piece, I placed the ornament face down onto the colored side of the flock sheet and sandwiched both pieces between some parchment paper. I ran that through my laminator machine twice, and peeled back the flock to reveal the beautiful soft blue snowflake!
For the foiled piece, I placed the foil coloured side up on top of the stenciled ornament and again sandwiched both pieces between some parchment paper. I ran that through my laminator machine twice and peeled back the foil to reveal the shiny red snowflake.
I applied some light blue ink (I used Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass) to the edges of each ornament, just to add some interest and definition.
Then, I stamped out a small cheery sentiment in the same light blue ink onto thin white cardstock strips. I adhered the strips down onto the center of the ornaments using some foam squares.
To finish the ornaments and make them functional, I tied some red ribbon through the small holes and tied them into loops, to allow the ornaments to be hung on a tree.
That’s it for today! I had so much fun making these ornaments and they were easy and fast to make. I hope you’ve enjoyed following along!
And if you missed it earlier…be sure to visit our YouTube as Lynnea has a special project to share with you on the ThermOWeb YouTube Channel! And she’ll be joined by a special guest – her son, Jax! If you’ve joined Lynnea before you may have heard his sweet voice or seen his little hands pop onto the screen. He’s been wanting to craft live with her, so we’re going to show how easy it is to create a set of ornaments with Glitz Glitter Gel! Set the time for tomorrow at
