Ornament Keepsake Poinsettia.

I have jumped on the ornament making bandwagon. I have seen many renditions of the ornament from the front cover and page 3 of the Holiday Mini catalog. I am hosting a stamp camp in which this will be our focus. Here is my rendition.

First you will need the Ornament Keepsakes stamps set and the Framelits from page 3 in the mini catalog. *Note, they can be purchased together in a bundle at a 15% discount. LOVE THAT!
I used Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, and Raspberry Ripple ink colors. Stamp 18 Large ornaments, cut them out using the framelits. Cut another 6 blank ornaments.

Fold all 18  stamped ornaments in half. Keep folded and attach to the left and right of a blank ornament  base, then add another on top (3 folded ornaments for each petal).

Each petal should look like this.

Glue each petal together with top of ornaments in center and on a 1 1/2" circle base.

Punch a hole in one petal (this will become the top). Cut out 1-2 kind sof snowflake designs and mount in center.

Stamp a different ornament in Midnight Muse and punch out a  1 1/4" or larger circle to mount in center of the attached snowflakes.  Stamp circular detail from stamp set in Raspberry Ripple and punch out using a 1" circle punch. Mount to the center of the navy circle punched prior. Add twine for hanging ans a pearl in the center. Viola! 

These will be awesome on top of a Christmas package,  hanging from a gift bag, or hanging in your tree as a unique ornament. LOVE IT!
