Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot 24 hours of Christmas

If you haven't been over there, you should stop by Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot to see the hourly Christmas inspiration today... Christmas in July.. July 25th.

This is the ornament I'm sharing for this event.

All you need are these few items and a few minutes.
Supplies needed:
-1 small tin
-Core'dinations cardstock
-Cuttlebug Embossing folders (I used snowflakes and one of the winter borders)
-Circle punch that is appropriate size for inside of tin
-Baubles, dew drops, or fake snow.
-Tiny Christmas ornament, figure or paper cut item of choice (I cut a tiny tree and embellished with rhinestones for my -inside ornament)
-Hot glue or 3d glue dots.

1. Circle punch and emboss cardstock for inside background of tin. Glue circle inside tin.
2. Glue ornament in standing position in tin. Add desired 'snow' - dew drops, rhinestones, fake snow, flower soft, etc. Close tin.
3. Cut strip of cardstock width and length of outside of tin and emboss. Glue embossed strip of paper around outside and wrap with ribbon.

The possibilities are endless here. Last year I used designer paper, artificial snow and a snowman inside. Super cute! Have fun with it.

You can get these tins in all sizes at Lee Valley.
