3D-Ornament WOW! (Video How-To Included)

WOW People with this Easy and FUN Ornament!
 
We created this ornament with my son's class (22 3rd graders rocked this project!).  A 'non-crafty' mom who was helping said there was no way she could do it but as she saw the simplicity and WOW factor of it - was excited to see that sheeeee got it - too!! - I LOVE when that happens - lol...
 
To Create this WOW Ornament - simply start with 7 strips of paper - or HERE I used the Flocked Window Sheet from the Candeligh Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Mini. 
 
 
The Center is a 4" long by 1/2" wide strip of Whisper White Card Stock. 
 
You need 6 strips in staggered layers - the Flocked Window Sheets in 1/2" wide strips... These strips are (2) 6" x 1/2" strips, (2) 5-1/2" x 1/2" strips and (2) 5" x 1/2" stips... lay out and center like this!
 
Two Brads and Baker's Twine tie this all together.... easy peasy!
 
 
 This is only 1/2" thick but has big impact!
 
 
Simple Elegance is key for me!
 
 
 On a Tree - this ornament is going so shine and be elegant.  The lights on the tree are sure to pick up the shine of the window sheet and highlight the red flocked velvet on the window sheet.
 
Stampin' Up! Inspired this ornament with their Stampin' Success Magazine that is sent home to Demonstrators with suggestions, tips, challenges and how-to's!  I love that Stampin' Up! has such a great tool for it's Demonstrators!
 
Here is a portion of my son's class who created their own ornaments...
what fun we had!! 
(That's my boy in the lower right corner.. awww, mom's pride!)
 
 
This Video walks you thru How-To do this fun ornament!

Have a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
