Christmas Pringle Ornament
By Sue Smyth
Ahh Christmas time, my favourite time of year.
I love making little hand made ornaments and gifts
and the humble pringle tin is a great place to start.
As you know I have used just a little before lol.
Of course I have made a little snowy scene in the middle
Couture Creations Christmas dies.
Add a pearl brad and lots of soft white ribbon to hang
your ornament and everyone who receives this
will be filled with the joy of the season.
Here is a little step by step for you to follow
Cut down a pringle tin, I use a small hacksaw and trim
up with Couture Creations scissors
Cover the outside and inside of the tube with
double sided tape.
Trim patterned paper for outside to 3 cm, and
plain white cardstock for the inside to 3 cm.
Carefully adhere them both to the cylinder.
Die cut 2 medium scalloped circles from
Recut the second scalloped circle with a smaller
nested circle die to create a frame.
Next cover with dimensional magic and
drench with white glitter.
Use the cylinder to cut a circle from acetate. I find
that scoring on the acetate with the Couture Creations
pointed tool works a treat to create a guide for cutting.
Die cut Reindeer twice from white cardstock.
Snip off one of the deer from both and glue together.
Dab a small amount of brown ink to the rump of the deer.
Add dots of white ink or liquid paper over the brown ink.
Also add 2 mm and 4 mm red rhinestones to the baubles
hanging from the antlers.
Draw in eyes etc.
Adhere pringle tin to the scalloped circle
with hot glue to hold in place.
Add a continuous line of PVA glue to to the outside
and inside of cylinder to fill
in any gaps, and avoid any glitter escaping from the ornament later.
Scrunch up a tissue and adhere to bottom of ornament.
Paint the sky with a little blue or turquoise spray ink.
Add a few flicks of white ink for snow.
Adhere a row of small pearls to the inside of
the scalloped frame, and add 2 mm red
rhinestones to the edge of the scallops.
Build a scene inside the ornament, add glittery trees. to
the background and place the deer in the front.
Secure in place with hot glue.
You can add a spoonful of white glitter and
mica shards to the snow, to form a
Adhere acetate top to ornament, again
use PVA glue to seal the edges.
Adhere the decorated top over the acetate, and check
for any glitter leaks.
Add a strip of glittery washi tape or ribbon around
the outer edge, insert a pearl brad into it first.
Then tie a piece of organza ribbon around the brad
to hang the ornament
