Christmas Ornaments

My daughter wants to give something handmade to her close group of friends this Christmas. She asked each of them to name their favorite animal. I made an ornament for them based on their responses. I really hope they like them! I'll make one for my daughter as well. I have the perfect die set to use for her ornament! Shhh....it's a secret. 

 

These ornaments were s0 much fun to make. I used dies from my collection as well as papers from my stash. The plastic dome ornaments are very inexpensive and can be found at most craft stores during the holiday season.


Keep reading for additional photos, details and a list of supplies used to make these ornaments!

I used the Peace, Love & Paws stamps and dies from My Favorite Things to create the cat ornament. This stamp set also includes 1 additional cat stamp as well as 3 dog stamps. They are adorable! I added some festive holly and glittery snowflakes for a bit of sparkle.

The larger llama die from the Sizzix Llama & Baby Llama die set was used to make this ornament. I wanted the llama to have a Christmas theme so I added elements from other die sets to transform the llama.


I used the Santa hat from the Tim Holtz Christmas Sidekick die set to dress him up a bit. Tiny Christmas gifts were placed on top of the llama to add more Christmas cheer. I think he looks adorable!

I made this llama slightly different than the first one. I used a Bella Blvd. Christmas tree paper for the background and light blue paper for the snow because I wanted a little more color. Tiny Christmas gifts are arranged in the snow near the llama.

The final ornament was made using a Sloth die from Sizzix along with several Tim Holtz Christmas dies. The sloth is on the larger side so I had to move it around so it would fit inside the ornament. He is hanging from festive greenery that is adorned with holly and berries.


He's hanging a little bit lower than I would prefer, but I still love him!
