November's club project

Ever since seeing this tutorial on making glitter ornaments by Amy Rysavy. . .I have wanted to try it!!! Of course, two years later I actually get all the stuff :)

Don't wait as long as I did! It is really easy and super fun!

I made the ornament box from a 12x12 sheet of textured Real Red cardstock.
The scoring for this box is the same as the scoring for this treat holder-

score everything thru step 5, but instead of having the corners point in, fold them out and they will make a 4x4 box. I used a brad to hold the sides together.

The lid is a 7 1/8 square, scored at 1 1/2 on all four sides. Snip the corners and fold!
The little label uses the stamp set Winter Post, punched with the designer label punch, layered on a 1 3/8 circle and a wide oval. . . all punches are Stampin' Up! of course :)

For the ornaments you really need Amy's tutorial to make this super easy (see above link). I did do a couple of things that were slightly different than her step by step:

-I used 20 drops of reinker in the ornament AND spritzed five times with water directly into the ornament. I got a little better coverage with water, even tho' I didn't blend my colors.

-I didn't use a full 1.5tsp of glitter because I didn't want any left over-it is super easy to shake some extra in there if you need it. I ended up not having any wasted glitter, and that makes me happy!

-I was super curious about fine cosmo glitter and how it would look, so I gave that a try.
SO AWESOME! Here are some pictures:

These use Riding hood red, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery reinkers. All have Dazzling diamonds for the glitter. Fun to use rubons, too!

These two :

green fine cosmo glitter/certainly celery reinker-left

The fine cosmo is SUPER sparkly! almost like colored tinsel in there! I was very impressed :)

My favorite-Dazzling diamonds and Tangerine Tango! So gorgeous!
Here is the ornament box for that one:

And a box for the Certainly Celery/green cosmo ornament:

I hope you try this out! It is great fun :)
