Christmas Designer Series Papers - Stampin Up!

 Hello and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop. 

This week we are showing you some ways to use the Stampin' Up!® Christmas Designer Series Papers on our projects, and to show how versatile our papers are, not just for cards, I've chosen a Christmas ornament for my project.

This ornament is easy to make out of strips of paper, and I made 2 sizes: - the large ornament starts with a 6 inch square of paper cut into 1/2 inch strips.

The smaller ornament is a 3 inch square cut into 1/4 inch strips.

Basically you can make any size ornament - it just requires the initial square to be cut into 12 equal width strips, so working with 3 inch, 4 inch, 6 inch etc makes it easy to work out the maths.

The Designer Series Paper I've used is Whimsy & Wonder which comes as part of the Whimsy & Wonder Suite on page 24 of the July - December Mini Catalogue .

I chose 3 of the patterns and as you can see the reverse side of the paper, it plays a role in the look of the completed ornament.



Let's take a look at a couple of the steps in making these ornaments.

6 strips are woven together. You can see a quick video on my Youtube channel showing in detail the next steps that are a little hard to explain.


And the finished products from 2 of the papers I used:
This also shows the difference in size using a 6 inch square and a 3 inch square.
 
The centres of the snowflakes are created with foil paper and the wonderful 
So Many Snowflakes Dies from the Annual Catalogue. You can either leave it with just the snowflake or add another embellishment. I'm sure you are like me and have lots of suitable embellishments in your craft area. 😉

 Now it is time for you to hop along to the other demonstrator's blogs to see other creative uses of Christmas DSP. I'm sure you'll be inspired, so leave us a comment when you visit, PM me your address, and I will send you a kit and written instructions for making these ornaments.
 
 
 
Best Wishes and happy crafting

    1. Thank you Lynne. These are some of my favourite papers ever, and I just can't stop making the ornaments, probably because they are so quick and easy!
