Now… on to my ornament!
Snowflake Confetti Ornament
This is an easy-to-make ornament that
just about anyone can make. If you can use a hole punch you can make this ornament! The bow is just a nice added extra!
Clear Plastic Ornament
12 x 12 piece of Holiday Scrapbook Paper
Snowflake Hole Punch
Begin punching snowflakes out of the 12 x 12 piece of scrapbook paper. I tried to space my snowflake punches evenly that way I could reuse the cut out paper for Christmas cards!
Begin carefully placing the snowflakes inside the ornament.
I found that curving the snowflake one-by-one worked best.
Keep punching out snowflakes until you’ve used up the entire sheet of scrapbook paper.
Once you have all of your snowflakes in your ornament you can place the cap back on the ornament.
Using the ribbon on the spool, insert the end of the ribbon in the Mini Bowdabra. Make a loop about 5 1/2 cm long. Give the end of the ribbon a twist before placing into the Mini Bowdabra. Because this ribbon is the same on both sides I don’t have to worry about the right side of the ribbon facing. It’s a basic twist and turn. I made 4 loops on each side. Once you have achieved the desire amount of loops use your Mini Bowdabra wand and scrunch the ribbon down. Leave the bow in the Bowdabra for now. Thread the 2 loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end. Pull the wire tightly so the bow will not fall apart, then remove from the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the wire and bring them around to the back of the bow. Double knot, and do not cut wire ends. Fluff the bow to achieve the look you want.
Next, loop the Bowdabra Wire around the hook of the ornament.
Tie the end of the Bowdabra Wire around the top where the bow is.
Cut any remaining pieces of Bowdabra Wire.
Once your ornament is finished you can hang it on your tree!
I hope you enjoyed my ornament and will make it in the coming weeks! Make sure you stop by each day to check out the other 11 amazing ornaments still to be featured!
