Holiday Mini How tos - last ones!

I got the camera to work!  It might be time to check out new cameras. 
Or at least get new rechargable batteries!

Faux Bark Cone Ornament
  Using one of the wood pattern papers from the dsp, die cut 2 Petal Cone die shapes. 
Punch out a 2.5" circle.  Cut in 1/2. This is just a bit smaller than the
round part of the cone die.  Adhere the 1/2 circle (bark side out) to the inside
of the die cut. 

Curl the die cut around something round (The Crystal Effects bottle
worked great.).  Attach edges together at flap. 

Curl front round flap forward sponge all over edges,
and some on the body to get an aged bark effect.  I sponged a lot of ink
on the flap where the circle didn't cover the edges.  You could also
hand cut the 1/2 circles for on the flaps.
Punch 2 holes with the Crop A Dile for the Seam Binding Ribbon, 
so the ends are inside and hidden. 
You could make the Seam Binding Ribbon longer and let
the ends hand down the outside for added decoration.

Die cut 2 banners.  One in the pattern paper and one in Cherry Cobbler. 
Stamp and emboss a sentiment on pattern paper banner.
Attach together 2 banners with a brad and attach to cone with a  Dimensional. 

Loopy Bow
For the loopy bow, I used six 1/2" x 12" strips. 
Overlap and adhere the ends to make large circles. 
Pull together at center (see on left side of photo) and attach to each other. 

Wrap center point with a short 1/2" strip.  Carefully bend loops
up to create standing bow effect.  Round out ends of loops.

Stocking Banner 
This is so easy!

Score and fold 5" x 12" dsp.  Score at 2 1/2". 
Punch out however many stocking you need, by punching
with the folded edge just inside the punch shape. 
You'll have to work with your punch upside down so you can see the opening.

You'll need 2 sets of coordinating trim if you are decorating
both sides of the stockings.  Attach these to the stocking.

Using the Tombow Mono Multi glue, run a line of glue down the stocking,
as shown by the black line.  Any more than this and it tends to ooze out.
A little goes a long way.  Place ribbon inside stocking.  Press shut.
I attached my stockings 1/2" apart on the ribbon.

Medallion Decoration

The medallion on the bag is created using the same scoring
and folding technique as the bird ornament.

Using a 1.5" x 6" strip, score every 1/8". 
Fold back and forth on fold lines.
Attach ends together with narrow Sticky Strip piece.

 Punch out a 1" circle and cover with Sticky Strip on one side. 
Gently press medallion flat so ends of one edge meet in center. 
Press circle with sticky Strip over center.  Repeat on other side.

Add more circles for embellishment. 
Attach to gift package with Dimensionals.

That's it! 

Happy stamping!
