Time to Trim the Tree

Embellishments make the prettiest ornaments.  I'm really on this 'Stop Hoarding' kick.  Making the use of my scrapbooking supplies is my goal.  I went to my Christmas stash and after organizing everything I wanted to see what project(s) I could make to use it up.  I've got to make room for next year right?  lol  My tree is up and I want to start a tradition of making homemade ornaments, especially for my niece and nephew.  I have two to share of which were made with coasters, sticks, fiber and embellishments. 

Deasy Designs digital images
Bic Mark it markers
Flower Soft Polar White Diamond Range
Little Yellow Bicycle die cut
Archivers die cut
 This is what I pulled from my stash.

I painted the coasters front and back.
The fiber was tied to both ends of the stick.  My X-Acto gripster was used to cut in the stick to better hold the fiber.  It was attached to the coaster that was fully embellished.  Of course this is the blue/white theme.  It's covered with white felt and I piled on the love.

I am crazy about this one!  I love the snow....well I love the snow on the ornament or looking at it, but not driving in it.  As long as it doesn't stay on the streets and ice up I'm okay. 

Close UP  Can you see the Flower Soft Diamond Range and Stickles and on the top for snow?
This is the second one using a Snow theme.  I've had these embellishments over 10 years.  Each year they go back in the Christmas storage tub, but this year I used them up and I love how they came out.

The 3D brad is by Recollection, which is about five years old.  I like the wood on white.

 I'm working on my red and white collection now.  Hope I've inspired you to use up those cute embellies into ornaments that you can view year after year after year.    Yes my tree is up!  Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday to all!
