Confetti Stars Ornament

The idea for this come from Pinterest, but with color and paper changes to make it sparkly and bright.

The base and ornaments are Cherry Cobbler.  The ornaments are 1 3/4" circles using the circle punch (119850) punched in Cherry Cobbler (119685) and Gold Glimmer Paper (133719).

Then holding the Cherry Cobbler circle with a post it note on the corner, punch stars from the Confetti Stars Punch (135861) from the Holiday Catalog.  Adhere the Cherry Cobbler circles to the Gold Glimmer circles with liquid Tombo (110755) or Sticky Strip (104294).  Keep in mind, the glimmer paper needs a strong adhesive to keep it attached.


Paper Saving Tip!  Punch the circles from the Glimmer paper you use as a mat.  I forgot to take a picture before I attached the Whisper White, but here is the back side of it.  Be sure to not punch too close to the edge so you don't have it showing on your mat!
 
 
Here you can see through with the light behind.

 
Measurements:  Gold Glimmer 5" x 3 3/4"; Whisper White 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
 


Inside Whisper White:  5 1/4" x 4"
Inside Sentiment:  Endless Wishes (136829) in Photopolymer


Add some 1/8" Gold Ribbon (134583) by attaching over the back of the Glimmer paper and behind the ornament - you could also attach it behind the Whisper White card stock if you choose.  Add a pretty little bow and attach with a Glue Dot (103683)

Sentiment also from Endless Wishes (136892) 

 
Isn't this just beautiful?  I think it would also look pretty with Night of Navy and Silver Glimmer, don't you?

Thank you for looking in today.  The countdown to Christmas is on!  I can hardly wait for Christmas Morning.  My boys (ages 32 and 28) will be joining us for breakfast and my stepdaughter (27) and her husband will be joining us for lunch.  It should be a great day!

Remember the real meaning of Christmas in all the hoopla!

Happy Monday!
