Happy Sunday, y’all! I hope your weekend is going well!
At our retreat a few weeks ago, two talented ladies brought beautiful Christmas ornament projects for us to make! I gave y’all a peek at them and when I got requests to show how to make them… I decided that was a great idea!
I’ve got two designs for you – both made pretty much the same way, with slightly different decorations. One showcases the Stars at Night Hybrid Embossing Folder dies and the other the Nativity die from the Night Divine die set. BOTH use the now-retired (SOO sorry!) Shining Brightly Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
The first ornament – brought to us by Judi Hartbarger! – starts with two next-to-largest Stylish Shapes circles cut from Shining Brightly Specialty DSP – one in Very Vanilla and one one in Night of Navy.
I used the star die from Stars At Night to cut out three Night of Navy stars. Using my Paper Trimmer, I lightly – LIGHTLY!! – scored down the center of each die cut and folded them in half.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the three stars together – putting glue on just half of the backs of two stars and aligning all the tips.
I used a doubled length of gold Simply Elegant Trim to add to a 3″ gold Macrame hoop (get them at most hobby/craft stores or…here’s a link to them on Amazon!). I looped it around the bottom of the hoop – then knotted it on the other side.
Using Liquid Glue – I “sandwiched” the gold trim between two of the Stylish Shapes circle die cuts
Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the star to the Very Vanilla side of the ornament. The video below is a good way to see how to do that! 🙂
I cut out a four-point Stars at Night star from Distressed Gold Specialty Paper and adhered it to the middle of the star with Liquid Glue.
A quick piece of knotted Night 0f Navy & Gold 1/2″ Glittered Ribbon finished off the first ornament!
For the second ornament – this one courtesy of Linda Nye! – my two next-to-largest Stylish Shapes circle dies were cut from Gold Foil (for the front) and from the same Night of Navy and Gold Shining Brightly Specialty DSP.
I used the Night Divine die to cut out a Night of Navy Nativity and then used the next-to-largest Stylish Shapes circle die to cut it into shape.
Using little tiny dots of Liquid Glue, I adhered the die cut to the Gold Foil die cut circle.
Then I repeated the Simply Elegant Trim and “sandwiching” that I’d done on the first ornament.
I tied a pretty bow with the Night 0f Navy & Gold 1/2″ Glittered Ribbon.
I cut a Distressed Gold star using a Stars at Night die and adhered it with Liquid Glue. Since I still had them – I added an Adhesive-backed Star Trinket.
Et Voila! Y’all – these are so pretty and fun! Night Divine and Stars at Night are NOT the only options – how many different ways could you think of to decorate these as tree ornaments or Gift Toppers? !
I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
The other night I called Finny to go with me to feed the pony.
He flew by me and I caught a glimpse of…not-dog color.
Upon closer inspection…
Mooooom!! Mr. Moose wants to come with us to the barn! I PROMISE I’ll carry him the WHOLE WAY!
No. Mr. Moose did NOT get to help us feed. He had to wait in the house.
