For my project today I decided to make a few ornaments that I could give out as Christmas gifts. I have many people who take care of my disabled daughter, bus drivers, aides, therapists, teachers, etc. I like to give a token gift with a letter of gratitude to the people that take such good care of my girl. I found these inexpensive snowflake ornaments at Hobby Lobby. I created the pleated circle using my Cricut machine. I stamped the sentiment in green using JustRite's Merry Little Christmas set. It was colored with Copic Markers. The candies were stamped again, cut out.......yes, I said cut out! (A bit of a challenge due to their tiny size!) and Crystal Effects and clear Martha Stewart glitter were added. I then adhered them to the image.
The circles were cut out using Spellbinder's dies circles and petite scalloped circles. I added Crystal effects to the edges and sprinkled more Martha Stewart clear glitter over it. The top circle was placed on the bottom circle with a foam square. The entire thing was glued on to my pleated circle with tacky glue and then adhered to the plastic snowflake.
