Triangle Santa Ornaments
Ok, I promise next year I will host an ornament event. There are just so many creative people out there sharing their ideas, and since I have been home for 2 snow days, I did have some time to play.
These Santa ornaments are so easy to make. The original idea is from a demo Linda Creech. These are her instructions...easy peasy! Simple directions as follows: 3 pieces of cs 3 3/4" x 3 3/4", score each diagonally, run through embossing folder, using sticky strip adhere each edge to a folded edge(forming a tree or cone shape). Now create the head using different SU punches! Mine are spritzed with the hairspray/shimmer paint mixture, and look so cute hanging on the tree. There are some snowman friends waiting to join the Santa but not quite finished those yet.
We have never had so much snow...it is a true record. London has closed down, no buses, asking people to stay off the roads. Since I work for a bank, it is important to be there for our customers, so we are delaying opening till 9, then business as usual. It is still snowing here, quite hard in fact, but there should be less traffic than usual, so shouldn't be a problem to get to work and find parking. My daughter Meaghan is snowed in, her car is buried under snow, so after work, I am picking her up, we will get her car over the weekend.
Have a fun day, drive safe, and if you are at home, try making one of these little Santa ornaments.
