Vintage Christmas Ornaments

Good Morning everyone!  wow did the week go by fast!  I made these vintage Christmas ornaments in a snap!  The information on how to make them are below with the rest of the pictures.  Hope you have fun trying them.  I have more to post too where I used the Beau Chateau DSP, they are to die for!

Here they are up close.

Here what you will need.

Cardstock:  DSP Newsprint, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Soft Suede, Basic Black
Stamp Set:  Hand -Penned Holidays  Wood # 124310  Clear # 124312
Accessories:  Mica Snjowflakes # 124115,, Silver glitter 114286, Natural Hemp Twine #100982
Sponge Daubers #102892, Glass Ornaments and Modge Podge, sponge brush

Take your DSP Newsprint and tear small pieces and set aside.  Put 2 TBLS of modge podge in a bowl and add a teaspoon of water to dilute it.   Take the pieces of DSP and drop into the bowl let sit for 2 minutes to let the paper soften. Take your ornaments and remove the cover at the top where you hang it and set aside.  Your paper should now be soften start covering the ornaments with the pieces of DSP til it is totally covered.  Take the Mica Snowflakes and cover the ornaments with them and let dry.  I set the ornaments on top of a drinking glass to dry.  Take the tops of the ornaments and take some Modge Podge and brush it on the top of the holder, now add the silver glitter  and let dry.  When the ornament and the top of the ornament is dry put back together.
Tie a piece of 2 1/2' Nautral Hemp Twine to hand your ornament.
Now on to the tag,  cut a piece of 3 1/2 ' Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the Merry Christmas stamp in Soft Suede, now cut the end like a pennant.  Take the sponge dauber and shade the edges.  Tie a piece of the Natural Hemp Twine to the other end.  Using glue dots attach the tags to the ornaments.  I kinda of made them so they are wavy on the glass ball.  There you have it!  Aren't they beautiful!
