Super Simple Holiday Gift Idea

Did you score big with Black Friday deals?  I have never gone Black Friday shopping, the middle of the night kind!  I did a little shopping later in the day when the insanity was over, and although the store was busy, it was not knock-down-drag-out busy. 

I thought you might like to see a great holiday gift idea that costs very little to buy but makes a BIG impression!  The adorable ornaments on the tree above are made from CTMH's Dimensional Elements Ornaments!  That's right, they are basically chipboard covered in festive holiday Background & Texture paper (B&T is CTMH's patterned paper).  You could also cover the chipboard in glitter, or heat emboss them in silver or gold for an awesome look!

Dimensional Elements Ornaments are found on page 95 of the current Idea Book.  My recommendations for glitter to cover them would be either Prisma Glitter (z134, $4.25, page 98), or even easier would be the Winter Cheer glitter rub-ons (z1222, $13.95, page 93).  For the Glitter Rub Ons, you can use the sheet of glitter to apply glitter mess-free to the chip board.  Silver and gold embossing powders are found on page 96 (silver is z669, $3.95; gold is z668, $3.95), and make a gorgeous metallic sheen to the ornaments.

On page 21 of the Idea Book is a quick tutorial on how to apply a photo to the ornament, then page 20 shows some finished ornaments for some ideas for you.  I think these would just be wonderful presents for the special people in your life!  Quick and easy is the key!
