This is another ornament I made using small treat tins. These tin ornaments look adorable on the Christmas tree and would be great as a hostess gift, a Christmas favor, or teacher’s gift. They use few materials and can easily use up all scraps of card stock and use up any small embellishments you might have laying around in your craft arsenal.
One of the cutest stamp sets to use for these is the Stampin’ Up! No-Peeking set. Sadly this is a retired set, but so many other sets woll work just as well as you’ll see with my other blog posts. So, make sure you check back. Let’s get started…
Again, here’s a picture of the tins I purchased and used:
To see how the hole was made and the hanger was made CLICK HERE. On this bead head pin I added red beads.
All the stamping was done on scraps Whisper White Card Stock.
I stamped the tree in Garden Green Ink and one penguin in Memento Black and another one in Real Red.
CUTTING & GLUING:
The tree and black penguin were cut out. I then cut the hat and scarf off the red stamped penguin and adhered it with Multi-Purpose Glue to the black stamped penguin. On the hat pom-pom I added a rhinestone.
A 2″ Circle was punched out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the background. It was affixed with Multi-Purpose White Glue right over the bead pin head.
The tree was glued on as well as silver sequin stars.
I placed six Dimensionals on the back of the penguin, so he would stand away from the back and a glittery snowball was placed in the penguin‘s hand. Again, the snowball was cut from an artificial berry stem.
Around the tin I glued a piece of 1/8″ Red Striped Ribbon. With the same ribbon I made a bow and affixed it to the top front of the ornament with a Glue Dot.
Punch a Large Circle Scallop from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and adhere it to the back of the ornament with Multi-Purpose White Glue.
And, there you have a cute penguin ornament to hang on your Christmas tree or give as a gift.
Embrace the day and craft on!
