Project #3 Christmas Quilt Ornament
I’ve always liked to give handmade gifts at Christmastime. Crochet items are often packaged up and mailed abroad to family and friends. Creating the projects in the 2017 Christmas Ornament Tutorial Series has really been a joy for me. These are ornaments I’d like to see on my own tree, and can be created with kids and family members with a little advance planning.
Start with die cutting the Quilt frame from the Christmas Quilt Bundle. Use the Square die also to cut 2 solid squares. Glue a quilt frame (discard white die cuts) to a solid white square. Using the same quilt frame die, die cut from the 3 Foil papers and keep the off cuts in separate piles.
Using an alternating pattern, place all of the Copper paper cuts in the proper inlaid areas and repeat this process for all components. This will allow all of the corner squares to match, the center triangles to match and so on. This is a standard pattern practice in designing a quilt and allows everything to match! Glue these pieces in place and allow to dry.
Copper emboss the sentiment onto Vellum card stock and “roll” the edges. Cut a banner edge on each side and adhere to the center of the ornament. Use handheld hold punch and thread thin ribbon as a hanger.
Tips for this project
Choosing the paper to place in the inlaid areas can be a great way to incorporate a child’s design choice and get the whole family involved. Remember patchwork quilts? Try making random paper pattern choices!
To add accents, I used copper embossing powder for the sentiment but it can easily be changed.
Don’t toss out all of those Foil paper die cuts and frames! Create MORE ornaments by alternating the design and frames to allow the most use of your supply stash.
