Modern Ornament

How about a pretty ornament to add to your holiday decorations? I found this tutorial and thought I'd give it a try. I didn't want to use plain white cardstock so I punched my strips with the Eyelet Border Punch. My strips were 10" long. The tutorial uses 11" strips. I also added some beads to the bottom of mine for sparkle. There are so many things you can add to this, glitter, rhinestones, pearls, punched shapes, whatever you can think of!! This would look beautiful with some of our Designer Series Cardstock too. I just wanted to try white for my first one. It only took about 10 minutes to make and that was because I punched the strips.  I could see a bunch of these hanging in our window. That is, if I get time to make them. HA!
 Here's a little tip if you want to add beads to your ornament. I cut a piece of 24 gauge wire to use as my "needle". Just fold the wire in half and thread your string through then thread the bead with the wire and pull!! So simple. There was no way I was going to get the string through the bead without the wire. You could also just use the wire to string your beads onto.

I hope you're enjoying your holiday seasoon as much as I am. Thanks for taking time to stop by and see me
