I made some cute tree ornaments a few months ago based on some that Anna Wight made maybe 2 years ago – they were very vintage and sparkly but I had a request for a more colourful version (and I’ll share the other version here if I can find the picture…my archiving technique is not the best – I just drag everything into one folder after I post it so it’s hard to find pictures after the fact)…

I did have a devil of a time deciding what paper to use – I didn’t want to go too cute as the die is more elegant than whimsical…I finally found the perfect patterned paper and here’s what I made:

Must dash – still have some cards to make and don’t have our tree up yet!  That will be tomorrow or Thursday – I’m so behind this year!
