12 days of ornaments: day 12

Woot, you made it to the finish line! I saved my most favorite ornament for last, as I think it would work great on cards, layouts and other projects, too!

You'll need cardstock, patterned paper, JOY letter stickers, pennant dies (Spellbinders) or a pennant paper punch, small jingle bells, twine, pop dots, a holly punch and red half pearls.

  1. Die cut three scalloped pennants from patterned paper. Die cut three straight edged pennants, smaller than the scalloped pennant, from cardstock. Mat each one onto a contrasting piece of cardstock and trim around the edge.
  2. Layer the small pennant onto the large one using a foam dot.
  3. Add the JOY letter tickers to the center of each layered pennant.
  4. Trim a length of twine (I used waxed twine) a bit longer than the length of all three pennants.
  5. String four small jingle bells onto the twine.
  6. Turn the pennants over to the backside and arrange them in order. Place a small amount of glue along the top edge of each one.
  7. Lay the waxed linen string onto the pennants, with a bell in between each one. Set it aside to dry.
That's it! I made a bunch for my tree that spell out a number of different sentiments, and clipped them onto two branches using small clothespins. They look so cute!

Stop by tomorrow for a final surprise to wrap up this holiday season. :)
