DIY Mini Hoop Ornament | Dreaming of Christmas

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… One of my favorites Christmas projects to make is ornament. And today, I have a mini hoop ornament to share with you all.

I made these mini hoop ornaments couple of years ago with stamps and diecuts for my kid’s teacher gifts. But this mini hoop ornament, I created using the Dreaming of Christmas Digital Stamp, one of the new digital stamps and the Holiday Tradition Digital Papers from Graciellie Design.

I love using the Silhouette Print-and-Cut feature when working with digital stamps. It enables me to print the image and then cut it with my Silhouette Cameo.

First, I open the poinsettia cone bouquet image from the Dreaming of Christmas Digital Stamp with my Silhouette Studio Designer software, resized it to fit on the mini hoop, and then I created the cutting line with Trace Tool.

Before I printed it, I turned on the Print-n-Cut feature on the Silhouette.

I printed them on a Mixed Media paper with Canon inkjek printer.

After the printing, I put it on Silhouette Cutting Mat and cut it with Silhouette Cameo.

I dried the image with craft heater just to make sure the ink is really dry before the coloring.

I colored them with Arteza Real Brush Pens. These brush pens blend really well even without water.

I printed the musical pattern from the Holiday Tradition Digital Papers from Graciellie Design on a white cardstock.

I use the mini hoop to trace the circle on the printed paper and then I cut it with scissors.

I added it on the hoop with permanent dries-clear glue and I added couple clear stamping blocks to hold it down until the glue completely dry.

I scribble some of the Tim Holtz Gold Distress Crayon at all the side of the hoop and use my finger to blend it creating that gold shadow on the paper.

I added the poinsettia cone bouquet on the hoop with the permanent dries-clear glue and let it dried.

And then I printed the sentiment from the Dreaming of Christmas Digital Stamp on a white cardstock, added it on the hoop with the same permanent glue, and then trimmed off the extra paper.

I added some of the Tim Holtz Gold Distress Crayon on the sentiment edges and then blended it with finger.

I added some of the natural burlap twine on the hoop screw and it is done. I hope you all like this project. I will make more with other digital stamps for gifts.

Gracie has a huge sale going on at her Etsy store right now. You can get the digital stamp set I use today also on this Christmas Bundle Sale that you can save 50% Off on those 4 sets!

Project Thursday | DIY Mini Halloween Candy Bags

Hello everyone… It is here for a Project Thursday. Today, I have some easy-to-make DIY Mini Halloween Candy Bags to share with you all.

I am using the Beware Stamp Set on this project. It is a fun Halloween themed stamp set for sure!

There is a little girl image in this stamp set and I thought it will be a cute one to use as to embellish these bags.

I stamped the girl and sentiment using the VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad. I used 1″ Circle Punch to cut out the circles.

I made the paper medallions using halloween scrapbook papers that I cut into 1 1/4″ x 12″ paper strips. Then I scored each of them at every 1/4″, folded, and glued each circle on top of the medallion using strong adhesive glue.

I stamped the sentiment on a grey cardstock using the same ink pad, trimmed them, and then added on the medallions with strong adhesive glue.

To read the Project Thursday tutorial how to make the mini bag, head over to Precious Remembrance Shop Blog. I hope you all can visit me there and like the project.
