KURETAKE: Christmas Tree Ornament

On KURETAKE ZIG's Christmas Tree Decoration post today, I created a 3D holiday ornament using ZIG Emboss Pen and ZIG 2 Way Glue to come up with this...

O' Christmas Tree Ornament by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: Darice; Stamp: A Jillian Vance Design (O' Christmas Tree set); Embossing Marker: ZIG Emboss Pen (KURETAKE ZIG); Embossing Powder: American Crafts (Silver Metallic ZING); Pearls: Want2Scrap; Die: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-028 Nested Pennants);Tool: ScraPerfect (the Embellie Gellie); Adhesive: ZIG 2 Way Glue (KURETAKE ZIG); Other: Silver Trim and Silver Cord

First I used ZIG Emboss Pen to cover the stamp image, stamped on cardstock and then covered with silver metallic embossing powder. Melt with the heating tool and cut/emboss with Spellbinders S5-028 Nested Pennants dies (I used die template #5, the smallest being #1).

Next I scored each die cut in half, using the tip as my guide. Fold each with embossing image inside.

With ZIG 2 Way Glue, adhere generously to each side of the die cut to a corresponding side of another die cut to create the dimensional ornament. Before adhering the last piece, add trim and cord with ZIG 2 Way Glue (Tip: hold it in place for a few moments and let dry). After it dries, adhere your last piece by applying glue on both sides and add pearls.

Here is another look at the finished project...

So easy to do and can be applied to many different shapes for some variety in decorating the tree! Hope your holiday preparations are going well...only a couple more days! YIKES! Better get a move on! LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by!
