I finally took the plunge and bought the huge case of do it yourself ornaments. You know the ones I am talking about? They are clear and plastic. After making a few Christmas ones, I thought it would be fun to make one for New Year using the December kit!

The sequins mix in the box is perfect for the inside of the ornament. I think of these types of decorations as big shaker cards! But wait! It gets better! In addition to adding the sequins to the center, I made some charms from Shrink Dink film and added those too. The stamps and coordinating dies worked beautiful on the film.

I also learned how to stamp and remove images with Stazon through the process of creating this piece. I created a video on how to make your own full of tips that will be helpful in other areas of your craft!

You could make a dozen and create a banner out of them as a party decor! In addition, you could add them to a hostess gift or add a few after Christmas to your tree as a nice transition into the New Year. The sky is the limit with this type of project.

Until next time ~ Happy crafting!
