Project #5 Quilted Vellum 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.
Remember the Christmas Quilt ornament we created a few weeks ago? Let’s use one of the frames that were used to create the inlaid pieces. With a scrap of Vellum paper, die cut with the “stitching” framelits and the square frame for Christmas Quilt Bundle. Glue the frame on top of the vellum.
The same die set includes a holly sprig and berries. Die cut these with a white card stock scrap and set aside. Stamp and heat emboss sentiment from Christmas Quilt stamp set onto Whisper White card stock strip. Cut a banner edge on one side and use handheld hole punch to make a circle on opposite end. Use same handheld hole punch and thread thin ribbon as a hanger then glue the holly & berries to the hanging sentiment.
Tips for this project
The vellum is going to create a “glowing” look when this ornament is hung on the tree!
Choosing the paper colors can be a great way to incorporate a child’s design choice and get the whole family involved. Remember that there are many colors in nature to work with. Try making random paper pattern choices for a patchwork feel!
To add accents, I used Silver embossing for the sentiment but it can easily be changed.
Allow kids to sponge on color to the background with a Dauber or a cotton ball. This is a great way to let the kids feel involved.
