Christmas Tree Ornaments

These hand-cut tree ornaments are my design project for The Scrappy Tree. My family is celebrating with an outdoor Christmas Buffet on the 25th. So these are something relatively simple I made to decorate the garden.



Supplies :
Pattern Paper - Prima's Morning Song Collection (Sunday Paper)


Completed Ornaments :


Each ornament consists of 2 identical handcut shapes with a slit in the middle. They slot together to form a four sided ornament. As my friend Sandi M. said : some projects are more 'me' and these are one of them. They reflect my love of defined shapes and pure form. The Prima scarlet against the green leaves is probably one of my favourite Christmas colour combos.



Wishing everyone who celebrates - a Merry Christmas !

gorgeous cutting, Sandy. I love to fussy cut, too. The contrast of the red and green is striking. Merry Christmas and a Happy, health, and creative New Year.

It has been fun to get to 'know' you through your art.
