First of 12 Ornaments

Happy December 1st!

Can you believe it?  Where has this year gone?

I wanted to show you what I am making for co-workers this year for Christmas.  Just a little handmade ornament for everyone this year.

I made two paper rosettes using the Tim Holtz Rosette die.  I let one expand just a bit and kept the other one very tight so there would be a bit of dimension to them.  I glued them back to back and then added this fun sparkly snowflake (dollar store purchase last year) to the very back. 

On the front I used a premade K&Co 3-D sticker.  Each pack has 6, so I bought two packs and one pack of paper.  That makes it a pretty thrifty Christmas gift giving experience for me!!

Just for fun I thought I'd enter this in this week's Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge since the theme is ornaments!

Tomorrow I'll be back to share with you a Blog Hop from Joy's Life Stamps.  Can't wait!
