Stampin' Up! Adhesive Options
Step 1: Stamp 20 of the larger ornament images on Very Vanilla card stock with Old Olive ink. Cut out with the coordinating Holiday Ornaments Framelits Die using the Big Shot. Stamp 20 of the small ornament images on Very Vanilla card stock with Cherry Cobbler ink. Cut out with the coordinating Holiday Ornaments Framelits Die using the Big Shot. Score 15 of each ornament in half from top to bottom using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. Fold in half along the score line.

Step 2: Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere three of the scored ornaments together. Adhere one half of the first ornament lined up with one half of the next ornament and then do the same with the third ornament. Leave one half of the first and last ornaments un-glued. Repeat the steps until you have created 5 sets of the 3-ornament groupings in each ornament style. Add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the halves of the first and last ornaments in the 3-ornament grouping. Adhere to the back of an un-scored ornament of the same style. Repeat for all 5 sets of each style.

Step 3: Punch a circle from scrap card stock using the 1-3/8” Circle Punch. Place the circle on the Silicone Craft Sheet. Add a line of hot glue around the edge of the circle. Position the necks of the larger Old Olive ornaments, flat side down, evenly around the circle. Press into the hot glue. Use the Bone Folder to avoid burning yourself. Nest the smaller ornaments with the larger ornaments.

To finish up, add Tulle Ribbon and linen thread, and create a rosette to add to the center of the ornament with the clear button using hot glue. Punch a hole for ribbon at the top. Optional: Add Dazzling Details Stampin’ Glitter or Champaign Shimmer Mist to add sparkle to the finished ornament.

  1. This is lovely however, I am in Florida! and what woudl the cost of all the materials be?

    Karen Hill

  2. Karen,

    The merchandise cost if you needed to order every supply on the list would be $304.30 but you would need to factor in shipping/handling and tax according to your sales tax in Florida.

    Thank you for your comment!

  3. What a stunning decoration. Thank you for sharing how to make it. Wishing you and your family A Merry Christmas & a Very Happy New Year.

  4. Could you give pattern pieces to download so crafters could try their own version of this ornament.

    1. I cannot give pattern pieces as this is a stamp set sold by Stampin' Up! in last years catalog.

  5. Seriously, how ridiculous that someone would pay over $300 to make a PAPER ornament that probably wouldn't survive storage intact for use the next year. Some people have more money than brains!!!

    1. A lot of these supplies aren't just for this ornament. You would be able to have these supplies on hand to do many other projects with like the Big Shot, paper, punches, etc. Surprisingly my ornaments are still intact after 3 years of use which is why Stampin' Up! products are incredible to craft with!!

  6. Unbelievably lovely ornament, unbelievable cost. I understand that the supplies ordered would make more than just the one ornament.....but this type of crafting and the supplies involved is outrageously expensive.

    1. Thank you for your comment. It does seem a bit high if you think of it by just making this ornament. But a lot of the supplies to make this ornament are meant to be reused to make other crafts as well. For example, stamp sets, ink pads, Sizzix Big Shot machine and dies are all things you can use again and again so your investment would be well spent for your craft room. Our products are some of the best quality out there!

  7. Hate crafting much??? If I bought all these supplies, and made 100 ornaments for my tree, that would mean I spent $3.00 per ornament. Cheaper than buying individual ornaments from Hallmark or Pier One. So money well spent in my book!!! Plus I would now own all the supplies I would need to make more ornaments, not to mention cards (saving another $100 there for my Christmas cards rather than $5.99 a card) and I would now own the big shot to use with other things... Crafter love what we do and we use what we have! It saves plenty of money in the long run!!!

  8. Atta girl, someone using their head. The tools open up doors to paper crafting that are endless & as mentioned they are of great quality :0)
