Peace Ornament
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  I have been working on holiday gifts, so I thought I would share.  Today's project is an ornament I made using a porcelain disk, some Memory Box dies, and some glitter.  It is a fast project and VERY inexpensive.  I bought a set of disks at Michaels last year after Christmas for a cheap price, but even at full price, they shouldn't be over $1 each.  Adding the paper, glitter, tape and ribbon will still keep the project under $2.

To make my ornament, I cut out a circle from white cardstock that was the same size as my Peace Circle die.  Before running the white cardstock through my Big Shot, I put very strong tape (from Elizabeth Crafts) on both sides of the white paper.  I did that because I wanted the circle to stick really well to the porcelain and I wanted to add die cuts and glitter to the other side without either falling off the ornament.


I removed the tape backing from the front of the circle and then added my tree die, the peace circle and a red bird on top.  Once all the dies were in place, I sprinkled the open spaces with glitter so that all the open areas were covered with sparkle.  As a finishing step, I cut away the rest of the tree frame, taped my bird scene to the disk and added a ribbon:


What about your guys?  Do you make any of your holiday gifts?  I am always looking for new ideas.

What a great idea! Simple, easy to mass produce and beautiful all at the same time. And you can write on the back as well. I will definitely be giving this a try. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful ornament and it seems easy enough for me to try! I'm amazed you're on to Christmas already....I'm still wondering what to do for Halloween and Thanksgiving!

Love this beautiful ornament!

so creative and pretty, I love the way you combined both dies!
