My special tradition....
handmade Christmas ornaments.
For almost 40 years now, I have made about 2 dozen
handmade Christmas ornaments for my family and closest friends.
A tradition started by my Mom, one I have enjoyed doing each year and one I know that means a lot to my children, grandchildren and other family members.
This year's ornament ~
For he base miniature music sheet, I used several 12 x 12 scrapbook pages that were printed randomly with the song sheet, and cut them apart. (Boy was I lucky not to have to shrink down music paper!) The birds and sentiment and coordinating die set are by Lawn Fawn (Season Tweetings).
A tiny line of glossy accents and white snow glitter was applied to the brim of the red hat.
This is the first time I've used Lawn Fawn products, and I really enjoyed using them....
which equals, I need more!
Birds were colored with Copics and raised with pop dots. After punching and adding the red thread for the hanger, I did go back and apply glossy accents to the front and back of the punched hole to help reinforce the paper and prevent tearing.
