Here's what some of my friends and family are getting for Christmas this year! Aren't my boys handsome??!! Just finished these ornaments and was pretty proud of them... so had to share.
Whipping up some easy ornaments today... These are so fun to make, too. Get some of those plain clear ornaments from the craft store, and use glue dots or sticky strip (double-sided tape with red liner) to make designs on your ornaments. Then sprinkle with glitter.

The blue one on the near right has three rings of tape randomly placed. Don't worry, the tape is easy to lay down in a straight line. You'll need to cut apart where the lines "overlap". The green one and the far right blue one have lines coming down radially from the top. One line of tape can be placed from top to top, all the way around. Then add two more strips to each half, dividing evenly so that the ball is divided into six even sections.

The polka dots are the easiest of all, use any size glue dots you want. I used Stampin' Up!'s chunky red glitter on these, and Stampin' Up!'s fine cosmo glitter for the others.

~Thanks for looking!

These are the little favors I made for my contribution to our local Ronald McDonald House in Orange, CA. I just joined the group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that are volunteering there, and have had fun making projects for them. I donated 10 cards, envelopes and stamps for families to send out while staying at the House. I am also decorating 10 big bags, and have made 40 favors! They were a lot of fun, and I'll make similar ones for my boys' classmates. For more information about Ronald McDonald House Charities, visit their website:
