Friends With Flair and some NEW {ippity} inspiration!


Hello! I hope you are having fun today looking at all of the wonderful Unity inspiration!  I got my big box of {ippity} yesterday and couldn't wait to play!  The Kissmas and Mistletoe set makes me sooooooo happy!  I love it!  I couldn't wait to pair that snowman image with my d'vine swirl CB folder!  I also made a matching ornament to go with the card.  I took some photos for a quick little tutorial!


First you need to find an old spool from ribbon.  I got this idea from Patti, the owner of Paper Maniac!  What a great way to recycle those ribbon spools!  If you are like me, you probably go through ALOT of these!  I used my nesties to create my circles in brown and kraft-to match my card.  The snowmen are stamped in ridinghood red.  I sponged brown ink around the edges and over the raised swirls and also on my snomen.

Now you use some tacky tape to tape a band of ribbon around the spool.  I created a loop on one end so that I could create my hemp twine ornament hanger.




Clear as mud?  LOL!  The ornament is really easy to make!  Who wouldn't want to receive a homemade card and matching ornament?  I hope you give it a try.  Remember...FREE shipping on my {ippity} products the month of November!  Click HERE to shop!
