Festive Flurry Ornaments

I took a cue from a product Stampin’ Up! is selling right now, the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit.  While I didn’t purchase the kit, I had all the makings for my own Festive Flurry Ornaments to give as little favor gifts this year.

As I write this, it is snowing here in central Ohio.  We are supposed to get 3-5 inches today.  I have to admit, I love snow.  I don’t drive in it, and don’t want my family or my staff to do so either but I realized the other day that I love it.  I don’t advertise my love of snow for fear of being ridiculed by those who find it annoying, like my husband.  So here, in the privacy of my own blog, I’m coming clean.  I love snow.  It’s beautiful. I love how it makes it quiet outside as it is falling, deadening the otherwise audible sounds of the world around us.  It makes January a bright and bearable month, that would otherwise be so dark with the short days.  It is the great equalizer across neighborhoods.  A middle class neighborhood looks as amazing in snow as the high class neighborhood across town. So today, I’m paying tribute to snow with a snowflake ornament.


And the SU version that inspired me.  


About my ornament

  1. With the ornament kit, two of the pieces come already scored to make it easier to fold and add dimension.  I did attempt to score mine but not with the success I had hoped so I opted to just score the second layer from the bottom only.  Mine aren’t as 3D’ish as SU but they are pretty.
  2. I also opted to use a piece of gold glitter paper I picked up at a big box store for accent rather than Silver. Same goes for the gold ribbon attached for hanging.   My deadline for getting these guys done didn’t allow for time to order more (I have since though) SU Glimmer paper.
  3. Finally, I used Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake, where SU used Soft Sky with Crumb cake.  I could have used Soft Sky, but honestly, I had some leftover retired Bashful Blue in my cupboard and I was able to use it all up with this project.


What I used

  • The bottom layer is stamped in versamark and embossed with white embossing powder on Crumb Cake, then cut with the largest Festive Flurry framelit.
  • Bashful Blue layer, second from the bottom, is cut with the next largest Festive Flurry framelit and then scored on all points and mountain/valley folded.  I attached this to the bottom layer with my hot glue gun.
  • Gold Glimmer paper, third from bottom, is cut with next to the smallest Festive Flurry framelit.  I attached this using dimensionals.
  • Top layer, Whisper White stamped in Bashful Blue and cropped with the smallest Festive Flurry framelit,  I used hot glue to attach this piece as it is the most effective when adhering to Glimmer Paper of any kind.
  • On the back is a Crumb Cake circle punch (1 3/4″) that I attached with the ribbon using hot glue to the back of the crumb cake piece.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope if you like snow as well, that you see some this year.  And if you don’t like snow, you humor me with my inclinations!
