Sweet Ornament

Good Sunday morning, Friends! I hope you are all having a super weekend! I can't believe it is almost over! Bummer! We have a short week at school this week. The quarter ends on Thursday and Friday is a teacher workday. But our principal is so generous that he said if all our work was done and grades were done then we didn't need to come in! YEA!! That shouldn't be a problem for me. Just to let you know, the boys did win their game in New Castle yesterday! The score was 2-0! It was such a beautiful field! We had fantastic views of the mountains all around us. I should have taken my camera!! The fall colors were gorgeous! Maybe next time?

Today's card isn't really a card at all. I used the sweet treat cups from the Holiday Mini to make this Christmas ornament. The only thing it is missing is the silver cording that I would make a loop with to hang it on the tree. I need to get that ordered. This actually turned out to be super simple. I stamped my image then punched it out with the 1 3/4" circle punch. Then I used my circle scissors to cut out two circles the same size. One is from the patterned paper that you can see and the other is from a Whisper White piece that you can't see because I wanted it to cover the back and provide some stability. The cup is self-adhesive so it is stuck to the patterned piece. I wrapped white grosgrain around the cup and there you have it! This idea is not original to me. I saw that someone else and that's where I got the idea. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
