How to make a 3-D Ornament using stamps from Ornament Keepsakes…
This quick tutorial will show you how to make these GORGEOUS ornaments to hang on your tree & around your house, use in your card making & paper crafting and use to decorate your holiday packages.
I am going to show you just how easy they are to make in just a few steps – all you need to make these beautiful ornaments are:
- Ornament Keepsakes stamp set – find it on pg 3 of the Holiday Mini Catalog
- Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies – also on pg 3 – and die cutting machines
- Mini Glue Dots/Sticky Strip
- Ribbon & Twine
Here is my quick tutorial so that you can make your very own 3-D Ornaments – at the end of this tutorial you will find a printable version too so that you can print it out and keep it for reference.
Stamping & folding your Ornament:
Take your ornament stamp and ink color of choice – I used Baja Breeze – and stamp the same ornament:
- three times to make an ornament for a card front
- four/five times to make an ornament you wish to hang
Take your scoring tool – I use the fabulous Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored scoring tool (pg 181) – and make a score line down the center of each ornament…
And then fold the ornament – fold one side over towards the inked surface of the other…
Do for all of your ornaments…
To adhere your Ornaments:
Take strong adhesive such as Mini Glue Dots or Sticky Strip and apply to one side of the first ornament…
Take the second ornament and carefully line it up with the adhesive side and push firmly together…
Repeat for the third ornament…
And stop there if you are making an ornament for a card front.
If you are making a free hanging ornament, repeat for your fourth & fifth ornaments – after you have positioned your last ornament, you will need to adhere the other side of too, to make a complete circle.
Now all you need to do is to attach some Ribbon and/or Bakers Twine and your beautiful ornament is ready to use.
Here is mine attached to my card – I tied around White Bakers Twine and finished in a bow – isn’t it gorgeous?
