Sparkling Festive Flurry Ornaments

I couldn't wait to make some of the beautiful snowflake ornaments/tags like the ones in the Holiday Catalog using the Festive Flurry Bundle! I actually made these right away after receiving my goodies and then made more of them at my Christmas in July Class, but I forgot to share them here...

The largest snowflake is made of 3 layers...I cut a light weight chipboard piece from a cereal box and then sandwiched it in between two Pool Party card stock snowflakes. This makes it a lot sturdier and I figure it will hold up as a pretty tree ornament for many years. I adhered the 3 layers together with Tombo Multipurpose Liquid Glue (my favorite adhesive!) with the Silver 1/8" Ribbon sandwiched in there as well. If you leave a large enough loop at the top it makes a pretty bottle tag for a bottle of wine. Who wouldn't like to receive this as a hostess gift during the holidays?
Each stamped layer is embossed in Silver Embossing Powder. The beautiful Frosted Finishes Embellishments, extra Basic Rhinestone Embellishments along with the layer of Silver Glimmer Paper really makes these snowflakes sparkle & shine. I'm sure I will be making many more of these to adorn my Christmas packages this year.

What a pretty idea! Bottles are hard to wrap and it's nice to be able to jazz them up and make them into a special gift. You are clever.. Thanks for the inspiration.
